XML Configuration File Editor

XML Configuration File Editor

XML Configuration File Editor (XCFE) is a web service to update the XML configuration file. It allows to set all parameters defined in the CSV configuration files.

The CSV configuration file is composed of 5 fields separated by semicolons. The first field, named "Element List", is used to detail the path to access the XML element where sub-fields are separated by comma. The second field, named "Parameter", is used to target a XML attribute or, if empty, it targets the content of the XML tag. The third field, named "Description", is used to define the corresponding label in the XCFE form. The forth field, name "Type", is used to set the value type from "check", "float", "ip", "mac" or "string". The last field, name "Default value", is used to define the default value which is presented in each input tip.

XCFE can be used with the minimalist webserveur WebConfig or with an Apache server and its PHP module.
