Configurable Engine is a gem for storning app-wide configurable variables. Things like your API credentials to various services. A reply to email, a list of options for a combo box. A boolean whether to display a particular section of your app or not. Configurable Engine gives you a simple way to set these variables, set up sensible defaults, and access them throughout your app.

The Engine stores variables in ActiveRecord, and comes with a simple admin panel for your users to change their values.

this short screencast is a quick overview and run through of how to get the engine installed and up and running.
