Project Description

If you have to use .ini files on your projects 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.


pip install configparserplus


Just replace your boring:

from ConfigParser import ConfigParser  # Python 2
from configparser import ConfigParser  # Python 3

config = ConfigParser()
# ...

With a super cool:

from configparserplus import ConfigParserPlus  # Python 2 and Python 3 _o/

config = ConfigParserPlus()
# ...
  • Please note that configparserplus works nicely on both Python 2 and Python 3. Also, it works normally on non-jinja (boring, regular) .ini files - so you can just replace it and refactor bit by bit.
  • Ah! If you just want to generate (not read/parse) .ini files using Jinja2 engine I would recommend using jinja2-standalone-compiler
