Flamenco Worker will read its configuration from
flamenco-worker.yaml in the
worker’s current working directory.
This is an example of such a configuration file:
manager_url: http://flamenco.local:8080/ task_types: [blender, ffmpeg, file-management, misc]
manager_url: The URL of the Manager to connect to. If the setting is blank (or removed altogether) the Worker will try to auto-detect the Manager on the network.
task_types: The types of tasks this Worker is allowed to run. Task types are determined by the job compiler scripts; the ones listed here are in use by the default scripts. These determine which kind of tasks this Worker will get. See task types for more info.
Apart from the above configuration file, which can be shared between Workers,
each Worker has a set of files that are specific to that Worker. These contain
the worker credentials (
flamenco-worker-credentials.yaml), which are used to
identify this worker to the Manager, and a database file
flamenco-worker.sqlite) to queue task updates when the Manager is
These files are stored in a platform-specific location:
Certain settings can be configured via environment variables.
FLAMENCO_HOME: Directory for Worker local files. If not given, the above defaults are used.
FLAMENCO_WORKER_NAME: The name of the Worker. If not specified, the Worker will use the hostname.
