dpt-config(5) Debian Perl packaging Tools dpt-config(5)

NAME

dpt-config -- dpt configuration

DESCRIPTION

dpt(1) configuration lives in plain text files using POSIX shell syntax. The files are sourced by the tools, not parsed.

LOCATION

Configuration files are looked for in the following locations, in order, and every found file is sourced by the script, later files possibly overriding the previous ones.
~/.dpt.conf
~/.config/dpt.conf

TIPS & TRICKS

Run dpt(1) from git

When bugs in dpt(1) are fixed or new features are implemented in git but not yet available in the uploaded version, you may want to run dpt and its sub-scripts from your local clone of the pkg-perl-tools repository. This can be done by setting the following variables in .dpt.conf:
    # needed anyway, adjust path
    DPT_PACKAGES=~/src/pkg-perl/packages
    # specific for running from git
    DPT__SCRIPTS=$DPT_PACKAGES/pkg-perl-tools/scripts
    export PERL5LIB=$DPT_PACKAGES/pkg-perl-tools/lib

Storing tokens

If you keep your configuration files in a (potentially) public git repository, you might be wary of sticking tokens like DPT_GITHUB_OAUTH or DPT_SALSA_PRIVATE_TOKEN in your .dpt.conf. As .dpt.conf is just a shell fragment which gets sourced, you can put those variables in a different file (and don't commit this one). E.g.
    [ ! -e ~/.dpt.conf.$(hostname) ] || source ~/.dpt.conf.$(hostname)
