Pages in this category contain example configuration for certain plugins. They should usually be named


where Name needs to be replaced by the plugin's name.

Adding example configurations

Please feel free to add your own configurations. If no configuration page exists for the plugin yet, just create it. When creating a configuration page, please stick to the following best-practices:

  • Put the {{Example config}} template at the top of the page. This includes a short text explaining example configurations, a link to the original plugin page and adds the page to this category.
  • Add a link from the plugin page to its configuration page.
  • Structure the examples by use case / (remote) daemon.
  • When adding examples for a third-party daemon, add a one or two-line description of the daemon, ideally containing a link to its homepage.
  • When using custom types in the configuration, add their definition after the example config.
