Configuring Herm's and managing recipe files
Herm's stores files in the following locations:
The configuration file,
config.hsin the XDG configuration directory, typically
~/.config/hermson most Linux systems
The recipes file,
recipes.yamlin the XDG data directory, typically
~/.local/share/hermson most Linux systems
To see where these are stored on your system, run
config.hs is a pseudo-Haskell-source-code file with several options for
configuring the behaviour of Herm's. It currently supports the following
defaultUnit: The default unit system to show recipes in. Options:
None. Setting to
Nonewill simply show recipes in whatever unit system they're stored in.
defaultServingSize: Default serving size to calculate when showing recipes. Can be any non-negative integer; set to
0for no default. This can be useful when you're always cooking for the same number of people!
recipesFile: The recipes file to use. This option currently supports relative (but not absolute) location, as well; if your data directory is
~/herms/data, for example, and you want a recipe file in your home directory called
~/GrandmasHugeCookbook.yaml, set this option to
language: Human language to use. Currently supported:
