NAME

Catalyst::Plugin::Config::JSON - Configure your Catalyst application via an external JSON file

SYNOPSIS

    use Catalyst 'Config::JSON';
    
    __PACKAGE__->config('config_file' => 'config.json');

DESCRIPTION

This Catalyst plugin enables you to configure your Catalyst application with an external JSON file instead of somewhere in your application code.

This is useful for example if you want to quickly change the configuration for different deployment environments (like development, testing or production) without changing your code.

The configuration file is assumed to be in your application home. Its name can be specified with the config parameter config_file (default is config.json).

For any keys in the configuration file that start with Catalyst::, the corresponding value is taken as the configuration for that class.

EXTENDED METHODS
