For a while now, i've been using Symfony's YAML to add a configuration file on my PHP projects.

Today, i stumbled upon Vance Lucas's PHPDotEnv which is a great PHP package that will transfer the contents of a .env file right inside your PHP's $ENV variable. Available through <a title="PHP Composer" href="" target="blank">Composer too.

Easiest method to add configuration files to your PHP projects ever!
