NAME

Konstrukt::Settings - Settings management

SYNOPSIS

        #there is one registy object that may be used from everywhere in the konstrukt-code
        #set a default value. very useful in the init() method of your plugin
        $Konstrukt::Settings->default('yourplugin/key' => 'defaultvalue');
        #set a value
        $Konstrukt::Settings->set('yourplugin/key' => 'value');
        #get a value
        my $value = $Konstrukt::Settings->get('key');

DESCRIPTION

This is the place where all settings are stored. The initial settings will be loaded from your konstrukt.settings, which is placed in the document root of each site.

Note that the settings are not persistent between multiple requests! They will be (re)loaded on each request. For persistance take a look at Konstrukt::Session.

For further information take a look at the documentation for each method.

CONFIGURATION

All initial settings are stored in your konstrukt.settings, which is placed in the document root of each site.

Each directive looks like this:

        some/plugins/setting   here go the values #this comment will be ignored

Take a look at the documentation of each module/plugin. If it offers settings, they will be described at the CONFIGURATION section of each module/plugin.
