Configure the Settings

A lot of configuration for your GeoBlacklight instance will be handled in the settings.yml file.

Keep in mind, GeoBlacklight has reasonable defaults for all settings, so you do not need to change anything in order to get up and running. That said, you will eventually need to change something. Below is an annotated list of all variables in the settings file.

If you are developing a custom application, look for config/settings.yml. If you are working on the core GeoBlacklight codebase, the file is lib/generators/geoblacklight/templates/settings.yml.


Settings are implemented with the config gem, and are available as properties of the Settings object throughout the application.
