implements ArrayAccess, Countable

Source on GitHub

Phalcon\Config is designed to simplify the access to, and the use of, configuration data within applications. It provides a nested object property based user interface for accessing this configuration data within application code.

$config = new \Phalcon\Config(array(
    "database" => array(
            "adapter" => "Mysql",
            "host" => "localhost",
            "username" => "scott",
            "password" => "cheetah",
            "dbname" => "test_db"
    "phalcon" => array(
            "controllersDir" => "../app/controllers/",
            "modelsDir" => "../app/models/",
            "viewsDir" => "../app/views/"
