Projects / Hiveconf


Hiveconf is a system for storing configuration data in key-value pairs. It works in a manner similiar to the Windows registry and GConf. Configuration data can be retrieved and modified using a simple API, and data is stored using different backends. The default backend uses a text file format that is similiar to smb.conf or Windows .INI files.
