Config Search Path

The Config Search Path is a list of paths that are searched in order to find configs. It is similar to the Python PYTHONPATH.

  • When a config is requested, The first matching config in the search path is used.
  • Each search path element has a schema prefix such as file:// or pkg:// that is corresponding to a ConfigSourcePlugin.
  • SearchPathPlugin can manipulate the search path.

You can inspect the search path and the configurations loaded by Hydra by turning on verbose logging for the hydra logger:

$ python my_app.py hydra.verbose=hydra
