Configuration file

The configuration files for PydonHive use the XML format.

Example configurations are given in the xml files you find in the examples/configuration folder of the package:

The file starts with:

<hive name="myprojectname">

and ends with:


In between you will define <minibee /> elements and <configuration /> elements.

XML elements

Each XML element is enclosed in < and >. If an element has child elements, then you have a beginning element: <element> and a closing </element>. In between you then find other elements. If there are no child elements, you can close the element directly: <element /> is equivalent to <element> </element>.


Comments in XML start with <!-- and end with -->. What is in between is ignored by the software that reads the XML, but can be useful for the human that reads the XML.
