config-model-edit - Graphical model editor for Config::Model
config-model-edit [options] -model Sshd [ class:Sshd element:Foo ... ] # plugin mode config-model-edit [options] -model Debian::Dpkg -plugin-file dpkg-snippet.pl
config-model-edit will provides a Perl/Tk graphical interface to edit configuration models that will be used by Config::Model.
Config::Model is a general purpose configuration framework based on configuration models (See Config::Model for details).
This configuration model is also expressed as structured data. This structure data is structured and follow a set of rules which are described for humans in Config::Model.
Hence the possibity to verify, modify configuration data provided by Config::Model can also be applied on configuration models using the same user interface as config-edit.
The model editor program is config-model-edit.
config-model-edit will read and write model file from
When you specify a

this option can be used to create model plugins. A model plugin is an addendum to an existing model. The resulting file will be saved in a
.d directory besides the original file to be taken into account.

include are represented by solid lines. Class usage (i.e.
config_class_name parameter) is represented by dashed lines. The name of the element is attached to the dashed line.
Dump configuration content on STDOUT or in the specified with Config::Model syntax.
By default, dump only custom values, i.e. different from application built-in values or model default values. See -dumptype option for other types of dump
Choose to dump every values (full), only preset values or only customized values (default)
Load model from cds file (using Config::Model serialisation format, typically done with -dump option). This option can be used with
-save to directly save a model loaded from the cds file or from STDIN.
Load configuration data in model from YAML file. This option can be used with
-save to directly save a model loaded from the YAML file or from STDIN.
Dump a model in YAML format
Force a save of the model even if no edition was done. This option is useful to migrate a model when Config::Model model feature changes.
Directory where to read and write model
In graphical mode, force the UI to open the node specified. E.g.
-open_item 'class:Fstab::FsLine element:fs_mntopts rules'
All Config::Model logging was moved from klunky debug and verbose prints to Log::Log4perl. Logging can be configured in the following files:
Without these files, the following Log4perl config is used:
log4perl.logger=WARN, Screen log4perl.appender.Screen = Log::Log4perl::Appender::Screen log4perl.appender.Screen.stderr = 0 log4perl.appender.Screen.layout = Log::Log4perl::Layout::PatternLayout log4perl.appender.Screen.layout.ConversionPattern = %d %m %n
Log4Perl categories are shown in "LOGGING" in config-edit
