Access a ProcessWire configuration setting ($config API variable as a function)

This function behaves the same as the $config API variable, though does support optional shortcut arguments for getting/setting values.

Example

$config = config(); // Simply get $config API var
$debug = config()->debug; // Get value of debug
$debug = config('debug'); // Same as above, shortcut syntax
config()->debug = true; // Set value of debug
config('debug', true);  // Same as above, shortcut syntax

Usage

// basic usage
$config = config();

// usage with all arguments
$config = config(string $key = '', null $value = null);

Arguments

NameType(s)Description
key (optional)string
value (optional)null

Return value

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
