# manageable with this mofa.
#service_hostlist_url: http://a-real-server:9292/hosts
# You can also have a json-file somewhere. See the test-file in the rspec-folder
service_hostlist_url: file:///Users/<yourname>/.mofa/example_hostlist.json

tmp_dir: /var/tmp

# The cookbook architectural pattern should becodified by following
# a cookbook naming schema:
# * Cookbooks beginning with "env_*" are Envrionment Cookbooks
# * Cookbooks haven a prefix like "<organisation_name>_*" are
#   so-called Wrapper Cookbooks
# * Cookbooks having a "base_" Prefix are Base Cookbooks

  env: "^env_.*"
  wrapper: "^(<your_org>_|<another_pattern>_).*"
  base: ".*_base$"
