## :frontend_configurations

This can be used to configure a keyword list that keeps the configuration data for any kind of frontend. By default, settings for `pleroma_fe` are configured.

To add your own configuration for PleromaFE, use it like this:

`config :pleroma, :frontend_configurations, pleroma_fe: %{redirectRootNoLogin: "/main/all", ...}`

These settings need to be complete, they will override the defaults. See `priv/static/static/config.json` for the available keys.
