NAME

Config::Neat - Parse/render human-readable configuration files with inheritance and schema validation

SYNOPSIS

    use Config::Neat;

    my $cfg = Config::Neat->new();
    my $data = $cfg->parse_file('server.nconf');

DESCRIPTION

This module provides parsing capabilites for the Config::Neat configuration file format (see the example below). This is a highly readable and clean format inspired by [nginx configuration files](http://wiki.nginx.org/FullExample). See https://github.com/iafan/Config-Neat/blob/master/sample/readme.nconf for the detailed file syntax specification.

Sample configuration file (let's call it 'server.nconf'):

    # Server configuration

    host                    localhost
    port                    8080
    use_ssl                 YES
    supported_mime_types    text/html text/css text/xml text/plain
                            image/gif image/jpeg image/png image/x-icon
                            application/x-javascript

    handler test1 {
        url                 /test1
        class               MyApp::Test
    }

    handler test2 {
        url                 /test2
        class               MyApp::AnotherTest
    }

Sample usage:

    use Config::Neat;

    my $cfg = Config::Neat->new();
    my $data = $cfg->parse_file('server.nconf');

    # now $data contains a parsed hash tree which you can examine

    # consider the sample configuration file above

    my $list = $data->{'server'}->{'supported_mime_types'};
    #
    # $list now is an array reference:
    #     ['text/html', 'text/css', ..., 'application/x-javascript']

    my $handlers = $data->{'handler'};
    map {
        print $_->{url}->as_string, ' maps to ', $_->{class}->as_string
    } @$handlers;
