Courtier is a configuration management system for Ruby tools. It can configure all your tools in a single multi-tenant file.

Getting Started

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 .bashrc or .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 you use bundle exec.

    gem 'courtier'

Now you can specify tool configurations in your project's Config.rb file.

    config 'qed', profile: 'coverage' do
      require 'simplecov'
      SimpleCov.start do

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|
