Special values

In json it is possible to have empty arrays and objects. In Elektra this is mapped using the special names




Arrays are mapped to Elektra's array convention #0, #1,..


  • Everything is string if not tagged by meta key 'type' Only valid json types can be used in type, otherwise there are some fall backs to string but warnings are produced.
  • Values in non-leaves are discarded.
  • Arrays will be normalized (to #0, #1, ..)
  • Comments of various json-dialects are discarded.

Because of these potential problems a type checker, comments filter and directory value filter are highly recommended.

OpenICC Device Config

This plugin was specifically designed and tested for the OpenICC_device_config_DB although it is of course not limited to it.

Mount the plugin:

    kdb mount --resolver=resolver_fm_xhp_x color/settings/openicc-devices.json /org/freedesktop/openicc yajl rename cut=org/freedesktop/openicc


    kdb mount-openicc

Then you can copy the OpenICC_device_config_DB.json to systemwide or user config, e.g.

    cp src/plugins/yajl/examples/OpenICC_device_config_DB.json /etc/xdg
    cp src/plugins/yajl/examples/OpenICC_device_config_DB.json ~/.config
    kdb ls system/org/freedesktop/openicc

prints out then all device entries available in the config

    kdb get system/org/freedesktop/openicc/device/camera/0/EXIF_manufacturer

prints out 'Glasshuette' with the example config in souce

You can export the whole system openicc config to ini with:

    kdb export system/org/freedesktop/openicc simpleini > dump.ini

or import it:

    kdb import system/org/freedesktop/openicc ini < dump.ini
