NAME

lazygal.conf - Configuration file for lazygal, a static web gallery generator.

FORMAT DESCRIPTION

lazygal(1) is configured using JSON files. The format looks like this:
 
{
    "sectionname": {
        "variable"     : "string value ",
        "boolean"      : false,
        "list"         : ["foo", "bar"],
        "dictionnary"  : {
            "key1": "value1",
            "key2": "value2"
        }
    },
    "othersection": {
        "foo"          : "bar"
    }
}
This format is the preferred way to configure lazygal(1).

LEGACY FORMAT DESCRIPTION (INI)

The configuration file can also be an INI like file. The format looks like this:
 
[sectionname]
variable = string value
boolean = Yes
list = foo, bar
dictionnary = key1=value1, key2=value2
[othersection] foo = bar
In this INI format, boolean values can be conveniently set in the following ways:
 
•For True: 1, yes, true, and on.
 
•For False: 0, no, false, and off.
Please refer to the python ConfigParser documentation[1] for more information on the file format.
