A common configuration-storage class with a .diag() method

Project description

A common configuration-storage class with a .diag() method


This module provides four classes that may be used as base classes for storing program runtime configuration with a verbose boolean field. The classes provide a .diag(msg) method that decides whether to output the provided message based on the value of the object's verbose field.

The ConfigDiagUnfrozen and ConfigDiagUnfrozenStdOut classes are normal dataclasses, while the ConfigDiag and ConfigDiagStdOut ones are frozen.

The ConfigDiag and ConfigDiagUnfrozen classes will output any diagnostic messages to the standard error stream, while the ConfigDiagStdOut and ConfigDiagUnfrozenStdOut ones will output the diagnostic messages to the standard output stream.


Subclass the frozen ConfigDiag class, add a program-specific field:

class Config(cfg_diag.ConfigDiag):
    """Runtime configuration for the fribble program."""
    path: pathlib.Path

Initialize this class from an argument parser object:

return Config(path=args.path, verbose=args.verbose)

Output a diagnostic message if requested:

cfg.diag("This will either appear or it will not")


This module is developed in a GitHub repository. Contact the StorPool support team for information.
