class AppConfig
# Loads a YAML configuration file from RAILS_ROOT/config/. The default file
# it looks for is 'application.yml', although if this doesn't match your
# application, you can pass in an alternative value as an argument
# to AppConfig.load.
# After the file has been loaded, any inline ERB is evaluated and unserialized
# into a hash. For each key-value pair in the hash, class getter and setter methods
# are defined i.e., AppConfig.key => "value"
# This allows you to store your application configuration information e.g., API keys and
# authentication credentials in a convenient manner, external to your application source
