[erlang-questions] How do I move this into a config file?
Fri Aug 26 05:02:18 CEST 2011
I have some hard coded defines in one of my modules that looks like the
I want to be able to deploy this to multiple servers with a config file
using rebar. So I suppose this is a two part question:
- How does one move the above into an external configuration file and
then read it back into the application?
- I need to have multiple configurations as I will have different vms
hitting different FOOBAR instances. I'm looking to copy these to the
appropriate directory with either a bash script or rebar if possible. What's
the best way of doing that? ServerA will have external_a.config, ServerB
would have external_b.config. Ideally rebar or some third party script would
copy that over to external_[x].config and the module that reads this only
knows about external.config. I can ultimately get rid of the debug flag and
just use an external_local.config file where debug is always enabled.
I read about potentially being able to do this with vars.config, but I can't
find any examples / documentation supporting it. I want to put this all into
my build process and make sure each server has the right FOOBAR defined. I
would love any suggestions anyone has, I'm sure you've all dealt with
something similar when dealing with multiple environments.
