Advanced configuration

All configuration files use the TOML format.

Configuration is read from the following files, in order. Last files overwrite values in previous one. Linux



$HOME/Library/Application Support/highflux/config


{FOLDERID_RoamingAppData}\highflux\config (e.g. C:\Users\Alice\AppData\Roaming\highflux\config)

After that, any environment variable starting with HF_ overwrites any configuration value.


We advise you to send us a message on slack before changing any of these values, as that will more likely get you what you want. You should consider changing these values manually as experimental!
