Project Description


Builds on top of the builtin SafeConfigParser but adds various convenience functionalities.

  • Access to all the usual ConfigParser functionality
  • Access sections and items via convience objects and dicts instead of get()
  • Makes accessing items and section via dicts possible on Python 2.7+, ConfigParser has that from Python 3.2 onwards as a default
  • Ability to set values via the objects config.section.item = 'demmmmm' and dicts config['section']['item'] all while write() still work as normal
  • Make a few functions work directly from the section object config.section.items(), config.section.getboolean('item')
  • Strips any quotes on the edgeds of items used in the INI file instead of returning it as part of the values
  • Improve the defaults handling on the object to be more sensible
defaults = {
    'section': {
        'item1': 'boo',
        'item2': 'bar'

config = simpleconfigparser(defaults=defaults)


contents of read.ini:

debug = yes

from simpleconfigparser import simpleconfigparser

config = simpleconfigparser()'read.ini')

print(config['app'].getboolean('debug')) = no
with open('new.ini', 'wb') as handle:
