Augeas is a tool that might be very useful for Puppy developers. They have a "lense" for editing xorg.conf. I don't know how difficult it would be to develop more lenses.


Augeas, Oh, the possibilities ...

I'm no "developer", but I glanced through their site, the wiki especially: "Creating a lens step by step", etc. Think outside /etc, if you will. I'm thinking: - finite state machines - website maintainance - geneologies/pedigrees - etc. (No, no, not "/etc", "etc."!) Many applications would still use other tools, also, of course (such as Ghostscript, of course!), but Augeas seems like a very handy, Flexible!, addition to the shell toolkit.

"That looks like it could be very handy for use by configuration guis. There's a lense for grub and even for smb.conf for starters... but it could be used for jwm and all sorts of things. I can even imagine Zigbert editing gtkdialog trees with it... if there was a gtkdialog lense :)
