Preference system for applications

Project description

bp.preferences is based on the Preference package available on PyPI (

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)

  • /etc/file_name

  • ~/.file_name

  • current_working_direcory/file_name

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.
