Configuration Files

These are the special XML files used to help with the configuration of the Tinderbox program.

Filename Extension: '.xml'

You are unlikely to encounter this file type directly unless you are trying to alter the program's set-up.

As an alternate to the files packaged in the Tinderbox application, user-edited versions may be placed at:

~Library/Application Support/Tinderbox/ 

If the folder does not exist, just create it. If using custom Badges, add a further subfolder to /Tinderbox/ called /badges/.

This mechanism lets the user override the built-in application configuration settings on a per-user basis. If a configuration file is found in the Application Support file, that version is used in preference to the version stored inside the application bundle. It also saves the user having to make edits inside the application bundle and possibly damaging the application installation as a whole.

Remember: if you do create local copies of these files and upgrade the program to a new version you are advised to check for changes to the defaults and revise your user-set versions accordingly.

Tinderbox currently ships with a number of configuration files:
