Welcome to Flatconf
Flatconf is a system for software configuration. The idea behind it is to spread the editable variables on file system, to use it as a natural database.
So far, Flatconf 1.0 has been successfully integrated in:
The Flatconf project:
- defines how a directory structure needs to be constructed to create a configuration system,
- provides [source:/branches/flatconf-stable/src/lib libraries] to access and modify these structures, and
- creates [source:/branches/flatconf-stable/src/fcc user interfaces] to change Flatconf configurations.

Flatconf has a C library and a handy CLI interface called 'fcc', which looks like that (Lintrack 2.0):

Take a look at an introductory article to Lintrack 2.0 to see how a Flatconf-powered Linux distribution can be administered.
Flatconf 2.0 is a work in progress aiming at making it simpler to create, maintain and use Flatconf-based configuration systems.
