Python (Cython) based implementation of ConfigParser based on POSIX and stdlib functions.

Project description

Pipeline status Coverage report

Python (Cython) based implementation of ConfigParser based on POSIX and stdlib functions. Wrapped via Cython, uses POSIX stat and libc stdio functions for read file.

Support converting values in formats:

  • StrType - force convert to string all values (defaults too).
  • IntType - convert values to integer (include suffixes ‘K’, ‘M’ and ‘G’ multiples of 1000).
  • BytesSizeType - convert values to integer size of bytes (include suffixes ‘K’, ‘M’ and ‘G’ multiples of 1024).
  • BoolType - convert ‘False’, ‘false’, ‘True’ and ‘true’ to valid Python bool type.
  • IntSecondsType - convert time to seconds. Uses ‘pytimeparse’ python package.
  • ListType - convert separated by symbol (default is comma) string to list of values.
  • JsonType - convert json value to python value.


Install package in your environment:

pip install configparserc

Example code for parse ini-config:

import os
from configparserc import config, tools

class MainSection(config.AppendSection):
    Simple section where:
    *  some_int_key has int value;
    *  some_bool_key has int value;
    *  some_list_key has semicolon separated list value;
    *  some_other_key has int value in bytes.

    and all values appends or override defaults.
    type_some_int_key = config.IntType()
    type_some_bool_key = config.BoolType()
    type_some_list_key = config.ListType(separator=';')
    type_some_other_key = config.ListType(separator=';')

config = config.ConfigParserC(
    # Override section class for section `main`
    section_overload={'main': MainSection},
    # Set deafults for all sections.
        'main': {
            'some_int_key': "123",
            'some_bool_key': "false",
            'some_list_key': "a;c;d"
    # Allow to use values from environment
    # via "{ENVIRONMENT_VAR}" values.

config.parse_files(['/path/to/ini/config', '/other/path/to/ini/config'])
# Support comments
; in different ini formats.
int_key = 1234

config_as_dict = config.all()
