Store

Store is a dead simple configuration manager for Go applications.

GoDoc

I didn't like existing configuration management solutions like globalconf, tachyon or viper. First two just don't feel right and viper, imo, a little overcomplicated—definitely offering too much for small things. Store supports either JSON, TOML or YAML out-of-the-box and lets you register practically any other configuration format. It persists all of your configurations in either $XDG_CONFIG_HOME or $HOME on Linux and in %APPDATA% on Windows.

Look, when I say it's dead simple, I actually mean it:

package main

import (
    "log"
    "time"

    "github.com/tucnak/store"
)

func init() {
    // You must init store with some truly unique path first!
    store.Init("cats-n-dogs/project-hotel")
}

type Cat struct {
    Name   string `toml:"naym"`
    Clever bool   `toml:"ayy"`
}

type Hotel struct {
    Name string
    Cats []Cat `toml:"guests"`

    Opens  *time.Time
    Closes *time.Time
}

func main() {
    var hotel Hotel

    if err := store.Load("hotel.toml", &hotel); err != nil {
        log.Println("failed to load the cat hotel:", err)
        return
    }

    // ...

    if err := store.Save("hotel.toml", &hotel); err != nil {
        log.Println("failed to save the cat hotel:", err)
        return
    }
}

Store supports any other formats via the handy registration system: register the format once and you'd be able to Load and Save files in it afterwards:

store.Register("ini", ini.Marshal, ini.Unmarshal)

err := store.Load("configuration.ini", &object)
// ...
