API configuration file

To get a series of configuration parameters, the application will look for a file named config.{ENVIRONMENT}.json, with {ENVIRONMENT} being the environment variable NODE_ENV where the app is running (e.g. config.development.json, config.test.json, config.production.json, etc). Alternatively, each parameter can be supplied using a corresponding environment variable. Below are the available configuration values for the Staticman API server.
