given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

The plugin supports two parameters. Choose either or both. If both are provided, the plugin will merge or replace value with the value of merge.key in merge.file.

  • value: A string or structure of values to parse with erb
  • merge: (optional)
    • file: yaml file to load, defaults to override.yaml
    • key: key in the file to merge with the optional value parameter

merge.file variables can be referenced by inline erb using the builtin variable @dynaml. Key names are symbols.
