Overview

This class maintains all system-wide configuration for YARD and handles the loading of plugins. To access options call Config.options, and to load a plugin use Config.load_plugin. All other public methods are used by YARD during load time.

User Configuration Files

Persistent user configuration files can be stored in the file ~/.yard/config, which is read when YARD first loads. The file should be formatted as YAML, and should contain a map of keys and values.

Although you can specify any key-value mapping in the configuration file, YARD defines special keys specified in DEFAULT_CONFIG_OPTIONS.

An example of a configuration file is listed below:

load_plugins: true # Auto-load plugins when YARD starts
ignored_plugins:
  - yard-broken
  - broken2 # yard- prefix not necessary
autoload_plugins:
  - yard-rspec

Automatic Loading of Plugins

YARD 0.6.2 will no longer automatically load all plugins by default. This option can be reset by setting 'load_plugins' to true in the configuration file. In addition, you can specify a set of specific plugins to load on load through the 'autoload_plugins' list setting. This setting is independent of the 'load_plugins' value and will always be processed.

Ignored Plugins File

YARD 0.5 and below used a ~/.yard/ignored_plugins file to specify plugins to be ignored at load time. Ignored plugins in 0.6.2 and above should now be specified in the main configuration file, though YARD will support the ignored_plugins file until 0.7.x.

Safe Mode

YARD supports running in safe-mode. By doing this, it will avoid executing any user code such as require files or queries. Plugins will still be loaded with safe mode on, because plugins are properly namespaced with a 'yard-' prefix, must be installed as a gem, and therefore cannot be touched by the user. To specify safe mode, use the safe_mode key.

Plugin Specific Configuration

Additional settings can be defined within the configuration file specifically to provide configuration for a plugin. A plugin that utilizes the YARD configuration is strongly encouraged to utilize namespacing of their configuration content.

load_plugins: true # Auto-load plugins when YARD starts
ignored_plugins:
  - yard-broken
  - broken2 # yard- prefix not necessary
autoload_plugins:
  - yard-rspec
# Plugin Specific Configuration
yard-sample-plugin:
  show-results-inline: true

As the configuration is available system wide, it can be accessed within the plugin code.

if YARD::Config.options['yard-sample-plugin'] and
  YARD::Config.options['yard-sample-plugin']['show-results-inline']
  # ... perform the action that places the results inline ...
else
  # ... do the default behavior of not showing the results inline ...
end

When accessing the configuration, be aware that this file is user managed so configuration keys and values may not be present. Make no assumptions and instead ensure that you check for the existence of keys before proceeding to retrieve values.
