Grow Preferences

RC File

Grow uses a ~/.growrc.yaml file to keep track of global Grow preferences. This file tracks:

  • Auto-update preferences.
  • Timestamp of the last update check.
  • Custom grow command flag defaults.

Additionally, Grow will look for a .growrc.yaml file in the directory that the grow command is run. This allows for setting custom Grow preferences for individual projects.

Custom Grow Command Flag Defaults

For certain command line flags you can provide custom defaults for Grow by adding them to the .growrc.yaml file.
