    What if you build your configuration files using pure JavaScript and unknowingly it gets deleted while modifying a few changes. Well, such incidents can be avoided by using INI configurations. If you are building a Node.JS application INI is a must.

     

    What is the INI file format?

    For configuration of files entailing to values, sections, and properties these INI files use a simple format.

     

    Why use INI files for configuration?

    There are inherent hazards when INI files are not used. Although JS and JSON configurations are quite helpful in such cases, but INI files are extremely valuable. In case of temporarily updating the configuration file, to dodge certain data, JSON proves to be a big challenge, as it doesn’t support comments. I these cases we can also create a pure JavaScript configuration format.  One may reach a point where JSON/JS are more efficient, but currently, INI files are quite important for JavaScript.

     

    Initial Setup

    For getting started one needs to install the INI package by NPM. First, create a default package.json file and then install the INI package and save it in form of a dependency in the package.json file. One can make INI configuration syntax based complex and creative objects.

     

    Conclusion

    INI files deliver a very versatile and simple format currently INI files are quite important for JavaScript. Your call of action is to go find some contexts to use the INI file format in your Node.js applications.
