configparser module with lasers (for now with Jinja2 support)

Project description

Travis Codecov PyPI License Python versions PyPI downloads per month


If you have to multiple .ini files (for instance, when dealing with Pyramid's settings) you probably realized that the lack of a decent hierarchy between settings files just sucks.

configparserplus allows you to use Jinja2 templating language on your .ini files so you don't need to ctrl-C, ctrl-V your settings in your N config files. Seriously, never do it again. Just. Never.


Just replace:

from configparser import ConfigParser  # `from ConfigParser import ConfigParser` in Python2
config = ConfigParser()

... to:

from configparserplus import ConfigParserPlus
config = ConfigParserPlus()

... and refactor your .ini files to use Jinja stuff (such as templates inheritance)

For more details, please check these examples. Ah! Configparserplus works normally on non-jinja (boring, regular) .ini files - so you can just replace it and refactor bit by bit.
