Project description

Config Suite

CircleCI GitHub Actions Code style: black MIT license Codacy Badge Codacy Badge Requirements Status Documentation Status


Config Suite is the result of recognizing the complexity of software configuration, both from a user and developer perspective. And our main goal is to be transparent about this complexity. In particular we aim at providing the user with confirmation when a valid configuration is given, concrete assistance when the configuration is not valid and up-to-date documentation to assist in this work. For a developer we aim at providing a suite that will handle configuration validity with multiple sources of data in a seamless manner, completely remove the burden of special casing and validity checking and automatically generate documentation that is up to date. We also believe that dealing with the complexity of formally verifying a configuration early in development leads to a better design of your configuration.


  • Validate configurations.
  • Provide an extensive list of errors when applicable.
  • Output a single immutable configuration object where all values are provided.
  • Support for multiple data sources, yielding the possibility of default values as well as user and workspace configurations on top of the current configuration.
  • Generating documentation that adheres to the technical requirements.
  • No exceptions are thrown based on user-input (this is currently not true for validatiors).
  • Context based validators and transformations.
