Janitor tasks configuration files

You can optionally create Janitor tasks that hold some configuration in a separate configuration file, almost like modules do.

To do so, set the isConfigFile property of your JanitorTask class like this:

<?php
namespace CherrycakeApp;
class JanitorTaskMoviesUpdateImdbRating extends \Cherrycake\Janitor\JanitorTask {
protected $isConfigFile = true;
...
}

Janitor task configuration files must be stored in the config directory of your app, and must have a name that matches the task name, even with upper and lowercase characters. For example, the configuration file for our JanitorTaskMoviesUpdateImdbRating task must be called /config/JanitorTaskMoviesUpdateImdbRating.config.php

Janitor task configuration files must declare a hash array named in the syntax $<JanitorTaskName>Config. For example, this the configuration file for our JanitorTaskMoviesUpdateImdbRating task:

<?php
namespace Cherrycake;
$JanitorTaskMoviesUpdateImdbRatingConfig = [
"imdbAPIKey" => "mfu9873n94hosdaonfo3289"
];

The values you set in the JanitorTask::config property of your task class will be used if no configuration file is used, or if the configuration key has not been set in the configuration file.

To get a configuration value from a JanitorTask, use the JanitorTask::getConfig method, for example:

$this->getConfig("imdbAPIKey");
