Right now in the prorotype, the config file where vyconf gets its settings, such as log file, is in JSON. Not the best option for configs, and autogenerated deserializer is absolutely not the best option either because configs have optional fields.
Something more ini-like would be easier to use for people.
There's TOML, an ini-like language that allows a lot more than normal INI files can do, though we'll not be using more than sections and simple key-value pairs. It's still nice to know that if we need to, we can.
Incidentally, there's also a nice OCaml module for it, with lenses and stuff.
The config format is as follows:
# This section is mandatory [appliance] # Appliance name for system messages name = "VyOS" # This is where interface definitions and other data is stored data_dir = "/usr/share/vyos" # This is where scripts that generate application configs and do other things are stored program_dir = "/usr/libexec/vyos" # This is where appliance configs are stored config_dir = "/etc/vyos" # This is the config that is loaded at boot time, path is relative to the the config_dir primary_config = "config.boot" # This is the config that is loaded is primary config failed to load, path is relative to the config_dir fallback_config = "config.failsafe" # This section is optional [vyconf] # Self-descriptive, I guess socket = "/var/run/vyconfd.sock" pid_file = "/var/run/vyconfd.pid" log_file = "/var/log/vyconfd.log"
