Catalyst offers a powerful configuration system. We use it to provide application-wide, per-page, and per-session configuration. In addition, local configuration files can be used to override any configuration option for production or development deployment.
Here, $ROOT refers to the document root of your application.
This file contains the default configuration for the application. The application defaults to using remote data sources. If you would like to override this, see wormbase_local.yml.
Move this template file to wormbase_local.yml and edit values to locally override the default configuration variables. This file is maintainted in SVN as a template so that individual development preferences are not obliterated by an inadvertent svn commit.
