kdb - key database access tools
Elektra provides a universal and secure framework to store configuration parameters in a
global, hierarchical key database.
The core is a small library implemented in C. The plugin-based framework fulfills many
configuration-related tasks to avoid any unnecessary code duplication across applications
while it still allows the core to stay without any external dependency. Elektra abstracts
from cross-platform-related issues with an consistent API, and allows applications to be
aware of other applications´ configurations, leveraging easy application integration.
