Simple python module to generate configurations from templates

Project description

Config Templater Documentation Status

Simple python module to generate configurations from templates.

This is useful if you want to use configuration files for local development but want to use environment variables for deployment (i.e. in a container environment).

  • Free software: MIT license


You should run this script as a module. Executing in a directory will recursively parse the entire directory for .conftpl files and replace the jinja2 variables included with the corresponding environment variables.


Given a configuration template file test.yml.conftpl like this:

access_token: "{{ API_ACCESS_TOKEN }}"
data_url: "{{ DATA_URL }}"

You can do the following to generate a configuration file:

# Set environment variables
$ export API_ACCESS_TOKEN="tdfkls0dkl1j313"
$ export DATA_URL=""
$ python -m config_templater

This will generate the following configuration in test.yml

access_token: "tdfkls0dkl1j313"
data_url: ""


This package was created with Cookiecutter and the audreyr/cookiecutter-pypackage project template.
