lazygal.conf — Configuration file for lazygal, a static web gallery generator.

Format Description

lazygal(1) is configured using JSON files. The format looks like this:

{
    "sectionname": {
        "variable"     : "string value ",
        "boolean"      : false,
        "list"         : ["foo", "bar"],
        "dictionnary"  : {
            "key1": "value1",
            "key2": "value2"
        }
    },
    "othersection": {
        "foo"          : "bar"
    }
}

This format is the preferred way to configure lazygal(1).

Legacy Format Description (Ini)

The configuration file can also be an INI like file. The format looks like this:

[sectionname]
variable = string value
boolean = Yes
list = foo, bar
dictionnary = key1=value1, key2=value2

[othersection]
foo = bar

In this INI format, boolean values can be conveniently set in the following ways:

· For True: 1, yes, true, and on.

· For False: 0, no, false, and off.

Please refer to the python ConfigParser documentation[1] for more information on the file format.
