the catalyst configloader can load more then just one file.

by default it loads "myapp.conf"

if a file named "myapp_local.conf" exists it is loaded aswell.

docs: https://metacpan.org/pod/distribution/Catalyst-Plugin-ConfigLoader/lib/Catalyst/Plugin/ConfigLoader/Manual.pod#Using-a-local-configuration-file
