CGITRC(5)
========


NAME
----
cgitrc - runtime configuration for cgit


SYNOPSIS
--------
Cgitrc contains all runtime settings for cgit, including the list of git
repositories, formatted as a line-separated list of NAME=VALUE pairs. Blank
lines, and lines starting with '#', are ignored.


LOCATION
--------
The default location of cgitrc, defined at compile time, is /etc/cgitrc. At
runtime, cgit will consult the environment variable CGIT_CONFIG and, if
defined, use its value instead.


GLOBAL SETTINGS

REPOSITORY-SPECIFIC CGITRC FILE
-------------------------------
When the option "scan-path" is used to auto-discover git repositories, cgit
will try to parse the file "cgitrc" within any found repository. Such a
repo-specific config file may contain any of the repo-specific options
described above, except "repo.url" and "repo.path". Additionally, the "filter"
options are only acknowledged in repo-specific config files when
"enable-filter-overrides" is set to "1".

Note: the "repo." prefix is dropped from the option names in repo-specific
config files, e.g. "repo.desc" becomes "desc".

BUGS
----
Comments currently cannot appear on the same line as a setting; the comment
will be included as part of the value. E.g. this line:

	robots=index  # allow indexing

will generate the following html element:

	<meta name='robots' content='index  # allow indexing'/>
