Summary Provide a way to specify options after package loading time

Sign in to subscribe to notifications about this report.

Description

It could be nice to provide a way to specify options after package loading time, in the spirit of \hypersetup{...} for hyperref package.

MWE

No mwe.tex

Evaluation

I'll have a look into it, but some of the options have to be set before the main body of the package is parsed (such as makeindex/xindy). The only ones that can be changed are the ones that have macro counterparts (such as \DeclareAcronymList).

Update 2013-10-15

I've added \setupglossaries to experimental version 3.11a. The following options aren't available in this command: compatible-3.07, compatible-2.07, xindy, makeindex, style, acronym, translate, nolong, nosuper, notree, nostyles, nomain, savewrites. These all have to be set while the package is loading. Once the new version has stabilized I'll upload it to CTAN.

Update 2013-11-12

Version 3.14a has changed the disabled key list for \setupglossaries. The following keys aren't available in this command: compatible-2.07, xindy, xindygloss, makeindex, acronym, translate, notranslate, nolong, nosuper, notree, nostyles, nomain. Those options can only be set when the package is loaded.

Update 2013-11-14

I've now uploaded glossaries version 4.0 to CTAN.

Indeed. For instance, the biblatex package's options may all be specified after loading time (e.g. in biblatex.cfg file), except, the driver (bibtex/bibtex8/biber, counterparts of makeindex/xindy for glossaries) and the styles ones.
