Store variables in database and update them at runtime

Project Description

Flask-WaffleConf

WaffleConf is a Flask extension that enables storage of configuration variables in the database as well as runtime modification of said variables.

Released under GPLv2+ license.

Installation

$ pip install Flask-WaffleConf

Configuration

Simple usage of the extension requires the following configuration variables (e.g., in your application’s config.py):

  • WAFFLE_CONFS: used for specifying the configuration variables that are going to be stored in the database. It has the following structure:
WAFFLE_CONFS = {
    'MAX_FILESIZE': {
        'desc': 'Max upload filesize (in bytes)',
        'default': 1000
    },

    'SITENAME': {
        'desc': 'Name of the site appearing in the header',
        'default': 'Waffle'
    }
}

Check the documentation for advanced usage

Example Application using SQLAlchemy as ORM

from flask import Flask, current_app
from flask_waffleconf import WaffleConf, AlchemyWaffleStore, \
    WaffleMixin
from flask_sqlalchemy import SQLAlchemy

app = Flask(__name__)
app.config['WAFFLE_CONFS'] = {
    'MAX_FILESIZE': {
        'desc': 'Max upload filesize (in bytes)',
        'default': 1000
    },

    'SITENAME': {
        'desc': 'Name of the site appearing in the header',
        'default': 'Waffle'
    }
}

# Define your database
# db = ...

# Define model
class ConfModel(db.Model, WaffleMixin):
    __tablename__ = 'confs'

    id = db.Column(db.Integer, primary_key=True)
    key = db.Column(db.String(255), unique=True)
    value = db.Column(db.Text)

# Create database tables
# ...

# Initialize WaffleConf
configstore = AlchemyWaffleStore(db=db, model=ConfModel)
waffle = WaffleConf(app, configstore)

@app.route('/')
def index():
    """Display content of configured variable 'SITENAME'."""
    state = current_app.extensions['waffleconf']

    parsed = state.parse_conf()
    # {'MAX_FILESIZE': 1000, 'SITENAME': 'Waffle'}

    return parsed['SITENAME']
