zarf dev generate-config

Generates a config file for Zarf


Generates a Zarf config file for controlling how the Zarf CLI operates. Optionally accepts a filename to write the config to.

The extension will determine the format of the config file, e.g. env-1.yaml, env-2.json, env-3.toml etc. Accepted extensions are json, toml, yaml.

NOTE: This file must not already exist. If no filename is provided, the config will be written to the current working directory as zarf-config.toml.
