Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.

About

Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

Readme

configuration-chain

Based on config-chain npm downloads

A module for loading custom configurations

npm version dependencies Status codecov npm downloads

In general, we recommend using run-con

Install

yarn add configuration-chain

# npm users
npm install --save configuration-chain

Usage

const cc = require('configuration-chain');

console.log(cc.env('TERM_', process.env));
/*
{ SESSION_ID: 'w1:5F38',
  PROGRAM_VERSION: '3.1.2',
  PROGRAM: 'iTerm.app' }
*/

The .env function gets all the keys on the provided object which are prefixed by the specified prefix, removes the prefix, and puts the values on a new object.

Full Usage


  // npm install configuration-chain

  var cc = require('configuration-chain')
    , opts = require('optimist').argv //ALWAYS USE OPTIMIST FOR COMMAND LINE OPTIONS.
    , env = opts.env || process.env.YOUR_APP_ENV || 'dev' //SET YOUR ENV LIKE THIS.

  // EACH ARG TO CONFIGURATOR IS LOADED INTO CONFIGURATION CHAIN
  // EARLIER ITEMS OVERIDE LATER ITEMS
  // PUTS COMMAND LINE OPTS FIRST, AND DEFAULTS LAST!

  //strings are interpereted as filenames.
  //will be loaded synchronously

  var conf =
  cc(
    //OVERRIDE SETTINGS WITH COMMAND LINE OPTS
    opts,

    //ENV VARS IF PREFIXED WITH 'myApp_'

    cc.env('myApp_'), //myApp_foo = 'like this'

    //FILE NAMED BY ENV
    path.join(__dirname,  'config.' + env + '.json'),

    //IF `env` is PRODUCTION
    env === 'prod'
      ? path.join(__dirname, 'special.json') //load a special file
      : null //NULL IS IGNORED!

    //SUBDIR FOR ENV CONFIG
    path.join(__dirname,  'config', env, 'config.json'),

    //SEARCH PARENT DIRECTORIES FROM CURRENT DIR FOR FILE
    cc.find('config.json'),

    //PUT DEFAULTS LAST
    {
      host: 'localhost'
      port: 8000
    })

  var host = conf.get('host')

  // or

  var host = conf.store.host

Finally, flexible configurations! 👌

Custom Configuations

var cc = require('configuration-chain')

// all the stuff you did before
var config = cc({
      some: 'object'
    },
    cc.find('config.json'),
    cc.env('myApp_')
  )
  // CONFIGS AS A SERVICE, aka "CaaS", aka EVERY DEVOPS DREAM OMG!
  .addUrl('http://configurator:1234/my-configs')
  // ASYNC FTW!
  .addFile('/path/to/file.json')

  // OBJECTS ARE OK TOO, they're SYNC but they still ORDER RIGHT
  // BECAUSE PROMISES ARE USED BUT NO, NOT *THOSE* PROMISES, JUST
  // ACTUAL PROMISES LIKE YOU MAKE TO YOUR MOM, KEPT OUT OF LOVE
  .add({ another: 'object' })

  // DIE A THOUSAND DEATHS IF THIS EVER HAPPENS!!
  .on('error', function (er) {
    // IF ONLY THERE WAS SOMETHIGN HARDER THAN THROW
    // MY SORROW COULD BE ADEQUATELY EXPRESSED.  /o\
    throw er
  })

  // THROW A PARTY IN YOUR FACE WHEN ITS ALL LOADED!!
  .on('load', function (config) {
    console.awesome('HOLY SHIT!')
  })

API Docs

cc(...args)

MAKE A CHAIN AND ADD ALL THE ARGS.

If the arg is a STRING, then it shall be a JSON FILENAME.

RETURN THE CHAIN!

cc.json(...args)

Join the args into a JSON filename!

SYNC I/O!

cc.find(relativePath)

SEEK the RELATIVE PATH by climbing the TREE OF DIRECTORIES.

RETURN THE FOUND PATH!

SYNC I/O!

cc.parse(content, file, type)

Parse the content string, and guess the type from either the specified type or the filename.

RETURN THE RESULTING OBJECT!

NO I/O!

cc.env(prefix, env=process.env)

Get all the keys on the provided object which are prefixed by the specified prefix, removes the prefix, and puts the values on a new object.

RETURN THE RESULTING OBJECT!

NO I/O!

cc.ConfigChain()

The ConfigChain class for CRAY CRAY JQUERY STYLE METHOD CHAINING!

One of these is returned by the main exported function, as well.

It inherits (prototypically) from ProtoList, and also inherits (parasitically) from EventEmitter

It has all the methods from both, and except where noted, they are unchanged.

LET IT BE KNOWN THAT chain IS AN INSTANCE OF ConfigChain.

chain.sources

A list of all the places where it got stuff. The keys are the names passed to addFile or addUrl etc, and the value is an object with some info about the data source.

chain.addFile(filename, type, [name=filename])

Filename is the name of the file. Name is an arbitrary string to be used later if you desire. Type is either 'ini' or 'json', and will try to guess intelligently if omitted.

Loaded files can be saved later.

chain.addUrl(url, type, [name=url])

Same as the filename thing, but with a url.

Can't be saved later.

chain.addEnv(prefix, env, [name='env'])

Add all the keys from the env object that start with the prefix.

chain.addString(data, file, type, [name])

Parse the string and add it to the set. (Mainly used internally.)

chain.add(object, [name])

Add the object to the set.

chain.root {Object}

The root from which all the other config objects in the set descend prototypically.

Put your defaults here.

chain.set(key, value, name)

Set the key to the value on the named config object. If name is unset, then set it on the first config object in the set. (That is, the one with the highest priority, which was added first.)

chain.get(key, [name])

Get the key from the named config object explicitly, or from the resolved configs if not specified.

chain.save(name, type)

Write the named config object back to its origin.

Currently only supported for env and file config types.

For files, encode the data according to the type.

chain.on('save', function () {})

When one or more files are saved, emits save event when they're all saved.

chain.on('load', function (chain) {})

When the config chain has loaded all the specified files and urls and such, the 'load' event fires.
