Configuration Guide

The configuration of WaTTS consists of one file. The file is located at /etc/watts/watts.conf. One other location is supported for development purposes; in this case please place your configuration file as ~/.config/watts/watts.conf.

Configuration (watts.conf)

The WaTTS is deployed with sane defaults, you only need to touch user-specific changes.

Each setting consists of one simple line of the format, comments are starting with '#'.

# this is a comment and ignored
key = value

Testing your configuration

WaTTS provides a simple command to check the configuration file

watts chkconfig

run it after changing the configuration to ensure your configuration file is correct. If everything is fine it will print out a line telling you so:

config is OK
