Avocado’s Configuration Reference

This is current Avocado Configuration reference. You can adjust the values by two ways:

  • Configuration file options;
  • Command-line options (when available)
Some options that are used often are available for your convenience also at the command-line.

Note

Please, keep in mind that we are in constant evolution and doing a huge improvements on how to configure Avocado, some options here can be changed in the near future.
