User configuration files
The Neuro client supports custom configuration files that provide default values for particular command options, user-defined command aliases, etc.
There are two types of configuration files that a project may have: global and local. Both of these are completely optional.
The global file is located in the standard neuro config path. Neuro CLI uses the ~/.neuro folder by default, so the full path for the global config file is ~/.neuro/user.toml.
The local config file is named .neuro.toml and the CLI searches for this file starting from the current folder up to the root directory.
Local and global configurations that were found by the CLI are then merged. If a parameter is present both in the global and local versions, the local parameter take precedence.
These configuration files must be written in the TOML format (which is a stricter version of the well-known INI format). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TOML and https://github.com/toml-lang/toml#toml for this format's specification details.
Supported configuration sections and parameters:

A section for describing user-provided aliases.
See neuro help aliases for details about avaiable section contents.

A section for neuro job command group settings.
cluster-name
The name of active cluster which overrides the global cluster name set by neuro config switch-cluster. Can only be specified in the local configuration file.
org-name
The name of active organization which overrides the global organization name set by neuro config switch-org. Can only be specified in the local configuration file. Use literal 'NO_ORG' to setup direct access instead of on behalf of some organization.
ps-format
Default value for the neuro ps --format=XXX option.
See neuro help ps-format for information about the value's specification.
top-format
Default value for the neuro top --format=XXX option.
See neuro help top-format for information about the value's specification.
life-span
Default job runtime limit for the neuro run --life-span=XXX option.
The value is a string of the following format: 1d2h3m4s (this example will set the limit to 1 day, 2 hours, 3 minutes, and 4 seconds). Some parts of the value can be omitted, for example: 1d6h, 30m, 4h30s. No spaces are allowed between the parts of the value.

A section for neuro storage command group settings.
cp-exclude
Default value for the neuro cp --exclude=XXX and neuro cp --include=YYY options.
The value is a list of shell wildcard patterns. Files and folders that match these patterns will be excluded from processing.
The pattern can contain * and ?. For example, ["*.jpg"] will exclude all files with the .jpg extension.
Exclamation mark ! is used to negate the pattern. For example, ["*.jpg", "!main.jpg"] will exclude all .jpg files except for main.jpg.
cp-exclude-from-files
Default value for the neuro cp --exclude-from-files=XXX option.
The value is a list of filenames that contain patterns for excluding files and directories from being uploaded. For every processed folder, patterns from the matched exclusion files (e.g., ".neuroignore") are read and recursively applied to the directory content.
Default is [".neuroignore"].
The format of these files is the same as the format of .gitignore files: every line contains a pattern, and the exclamation mark ! is used to negate the pattern. Empty lines and lines which start with # are ignored.

A section for neuro disk command group settings.
life-span
Default disk lifetime limit for the neuro disk create --life-span=XXX option.
The value is a string of the following format: 1d2h3m4s (this example will set the limit to 1 day, 2 hours, 3 minutes, and 4 seconds). Some parts of the value can be omitted, for example: 1d6h, 30m, 4h30s. No spaces are allowed between the parts of the value.
Example:
# jobs section
[job]
ps-format = "{id;max=30}, {status;max=10}"
life-span = "1d6h"
# storage section
[storage]
cp-exclude = ["*.jpg", "!main.jpg"]
cp-exclude-from-files = [".neuroignore", ".gitignore"]
# jobs section
[disk]
life-span = "7d"
