=head1 NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::JSONConfig - JSON configuration plugin


  # myapp.json (it's just JSON with embedded Perl)
    %# Just a value
    "foo": "bar",

    %# Nested data structures are fine too
    "baz": ["♥"],

    %# You have full access to the application
    "music_dir": "<%= app->home->child('music') %>"

  # Mojolicious
  my $config = $app->plugin('JSONConfig');
  say $config->{foo};

  # Mojolicious::Lite
  my $config = plugin 'JSONConfig';
  say $config->{foo};

  # foo.html.ep
  %= config->{foo}

  # The configuration is available application-wide
  my $config = app->config;
  say $config->{foo};

  # Everything can be customized with options
  my $config = plugin JSONConfig => {file => '/etc/myapp.conf'};


L<Mojolicious::Plugin::JSONConfig> is a JSON configuration plugin that preprocesses its input with L<Mojo::Template>.

The application object can be accessed via C<$app> or the C<app> function. A default configuration filename in the
application home directory will be generated from the value of L<Mojolicious/"moniker"> (C<$moniker.json>). You can
extend the normal configuration file C<$moniker.json> with C<mode> specific ones like C<$moniker.$mode.json>, which
will be detected automatically.

If the configuration value C<config_override> has been set in L<Mojolicious/"config"> when this plugin is loaded, it
will not do anything.

The code of this plugin is a good example for learning to build new plugins, you're welcome to fork it.

See L<Mojolicious::Plugins/"PLUGINS"> for a list of plugins that are available by default.
