Preference system for applications
bp.preferences is based on the Preference package available on PyPI (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Preferences).
It overwrites the load_files method to change the behaviour of loading preferences from different files. On initialization preferences are always loaded in this order:
package_location/file_name.cfg (contains default preferences)
Additionaly some methods are added to make conversion of preference values to Python types easier:
- def _toString(self, value):
Converts a string enclosed with single or double quotes to a Python string without quotes. This is needed e.g. to support preference values with leading/trailing whitespace characters.
