fedmsg-config(1) query or print the parsed fedmsg configuration


fedmsg-config [--query CONFIG_KEY] [--config-filename CONFIG_FILENAME] [--disable-defaults]

fedmsg-config [-h|--help]


Query or print the parsed fedmsg-config.

fedmsg-config is a simple utility that prints out the contents of the fully parsed fedmsg config as a JSON dictionary. It also allows the user to query a specific key of the config.


The tool allows you to query a specific configuration key with the --query CONFIG_KEY option.

In query mode, the configuration key has the following syntax: fedmsg-config --query foo.bar.baz prints the value of config[foo][bar][baz] to the standard output.

If the configuration value is an atomic value, it is printed directly. If the value is a list, each item of that list gets printed line by line. Else, the value is printed as a JSON dictionary.


-h, --help
Print an help message and exit
--query CONFIG_KEY
Dump a given key from the parsed config instead of dumping all of it.
--config-filename CONFIG_FILENAME
Config file to use.
Disable the configuration defaults.
