UConf, a smart tool for managing config files

Project Description

UConf is a small tool aiming to provide simple handling of configuration files for an heterogeneous computer set.

Its key concepts are:

  • Abstract host-specific config to common features (server, relay, …)
  • Host-specific configuration may range from a single-line change to a whole file rewrite
  • Configuration files are modified in place, not in the source - versionned - repository.


You can get started with uconf init <source_dir> <target_dir>. This will generate the following layout:


The config file is UConf’s main entry point. Its content should look like:

; Install files into the <target_dir> folder.
target: <target_dir>

; Default to parsing the files.
default-action: parse

; Put your category definitions here
; Example:
; myserv: server
; server and slave: not master

; Add category-file rules
; server: ssh/sshd_config
; laptop: X11/xorg.conf

; Override file rules here
; boot/splash_screen: copy
