Getting started with Courtier is easy.
$ gem install courtier
To use Courtier for all projects, add the
rc bootstrap feature to your systems
RUBYOPT environment variable. You will want to add this to you start up scripts, depending on
your system that will be
.profile, or what have you.
$ export RUBYOPT="-rc $RUBYOPT"
Alternately, you can add Courtier to your project's Gemfile, then is will work when ever
Now you can specify tool configurations in your project's Config.rb file.
config 'qed', profile: 'coverage' do require 'simplecov' SimpleCov.start do coverage_dir('log/coverage') end end
When the tool is run, with the coresponding profile, the configuration will be applied.
$ profile=coverage qed
As long as a tool is Ruby-based and has some means of global configuration, then Courtier can be used to configure it.
Tool developers can add direct support for Courtier to their project's with a simple snippet of code.
require 'rc' configure 'mytool' do |config| MyTool.configure(&config) end
