Accessing Nested Config with Viper

A Slice of Structs

Let’s start with the configured colours to send to my LED shelf (which I realised I didn’t blog about, but I should!) In the config.yaml file it is a series of objects, with properties red, green and blue:

- red: 120
blue: 200
- red: 120
green: 150
- blue: 200
green: 40
red: 60

Map of Structs with String Keys

This is pretty similar to above but I think a specific example might help. With a section of the yaml config file like this:

name: Camera
image: "/camera.png"
name: Offline
image: "/offline.png"
name: Secrets
image: "/secrets.png"
