Utils for managing configurations

Project description


Python package to manage configuration dictionaries.


Servicio de Informática y Banco de Datos <>


  • Simple wrapper around python dictionaries

  • Access to nested keys with dot notation: config.deeply.nested.key or as dictionary keys: config['deeply']['nested']['key']

  • Allows add dictionaries, remove keys or modify values by overriding dictionary methods


pip install beautifuldict

Quick Example

A Baseconfig object stores the configuration parameters as a parameter tree. It gives access to parameters in two ways: as dictionary keys or as attributes of the object.

>>> from beautifuldict.baseconfig import Baseconfig

>>>      'example1': 'hello world',
>>>      'example2': {
>>>          'key1': 1,
>>>          'key2': 2}
>>>      }
>>> config = Baseconfig(CONFIG_DICT)
>>> config.example1     # returns 'hello world'
>>> config['example1']  # returns 'hello world'
>>> config.example2.key1  # returns 1
>>> config['example2']['key1']  # returns 1
