DESCRIPTION ^

This program interacts with the Leanpub API. See https://leanpub.com/help/api for details about this API.

The slug is the part of the URL for your book coming after https://leanpub.com/. For instance if your book is found at https://leanpub.com/your_book, then the slug for your book is your_book.

FILES ^

CONFIGURATION

This program searches in the current working directory and all directories above for a text file named .leanpub.conf. It reads these files and adds configuration directives which are not set so far to its configuration.

The format of the file is rather simple. It just a key and a value separated by an equal sign and optional whitespace. Valid keys are the names of the global options without any minus or plus sign. For instance I have a file containing something like:

 # configuration for leanpub
 #
 api_key = my_api_key_from_leanpub
 slug    = using-the-leanpub-api-with-perl

in the directory I am developing this module in. So I don't have to provide the options -api_key and -slug to test this script. When I use the script for more than one book, I place a file called .leanpub.conf containing the API key further up and have only the SLUG in the files located in the book directories. To use a different API key I would write it in the file in the book directory so that the one further up would not be used.
