func Clear

func Clear()

Clear unloads the config. DANGEROUS, should only be used for testing.

func Get

func Get(key string) interface{}

Get a config entry. Panics if the entry doesn't exist.

func GetBool

func GetBool(key string) bool

GetBool a config entry as bool. Panics if entry is not a bool or if it doesn't exist.

func GetBoolSlice

func GetBoolSlice(key string) []bool

GetBoolSlice a config entry as []bool. Panics if entry is not a bool slice or if it doesn't exist.

func GetFloat

func GetFloat(key string) float64

GetFloat a config entry as float64. Panics if entry is not a float64 or if it doesn't exist.

func GetFloatSlice

func GetFloatSlice(key string) []float64

GetFloatSlice a config entry as []float64. Panics if entry is not a float slice or if it doesn't exist.

func GetInt

func GetInt(key string) int

GetInt a config entry as int. Panics if entry is not an int or if it doesn't exist.

func GetIntSlice

func GetIntSlice(key string) []int

GetIntSlice a config entry as []int. Panics if entry is not an int slice or if it doesn't exist.

func GetString

func GetString(key string) string

GetString a config entry as string. Panics if entry is not a string or if it doesn't exist.

func GetStringSlice

func GetStringSlice(key string) []string

GetStringSlice a config entry as []string. Panics if entry is not a string slice or if it doesn't exist.

func Has

func Has(key string) bool

Has check if a config entry exists.

func IsLoaded

func IsLoaded() bool

IsLoaded returns true if the config have been loaded.

func Load

func Load() error

Load loads the config.json file in the current working directory. If the "GOYAVE_ENV" env variable is set, the config file will be picked like so: - "production": "config.production.json" - "test": "config.test.json" - By default: "config.json"

func LoadFrom

func LoadFrom(path string) error

LoadFrom loads a config file from the given path.

func LoadJSON

func LoadJSON(cfg string) error

LoadJSON load a configuration file from raw JSON. Can be used in combination with Go's 1.16 embed directive.

 var (
 	//go:embed config.json
 	cfg string

 func main() {
 	if err := config.LoadJSON(cfg); err != nil {

 	if err := goyave.Start(route.Register); err != nil {

func Register

func Register(key string, entry Entry)

Register a new config entry and its validation.

Each module should register its config entries in an "init()" function, even if they don't have a default value, in order to ensure they will be validated. Each module should use its own category and use a name both expressive and unique to avoid collisions. For example, the "auth" package registers, among others, "auth.basic.username" and "auth.jwt.expiry", thus creating a category for its package, and two subcategories for its features.

To register an entry without a default value (only specify how it will be validated), set "Entry.Value" to "nil".

Panics if an entry already exists for this key and is not identical to the one passed as parameter of this function. On the other hand, if the entries are identical, no conflict is expected so the configuration is left in its current state.

func Set

func Set(key string, value interface{})

Set a config entry. The change is temporary and will not be saved for next boot. Use "nil" to unset a value.

- A category cannot be replaced with an entry.
- An entry cannot be replaced with a category.
- New categories can be created with they don't already exist.
- New entries can be created if they don't already exist. This new entry
  will be subsequently validated using the type of its initial value and
  have an empty slice as authorized values (meaning it can have any value of its type)

Panics and revert changes in case of error.


type Entry

type Entry struct {
	Value            interface{}
	AuthorizedValues []interface{} // Leave empty for "any"
	Type             reflect.Kind
	IsSlice          bool

Entry is the internal reprensentation of a config entry. It contains the entry value, its expected type (for validation) and a slice of authorized values (for validation too). If this slice is empty, it means any value can be used, provided it is of the correct type.
