Project description

Use configtool from the shell to validate, pretty-print, get or set config values::

With no arguments you will output the same config file, you can use this feature
to validate the file.

$ config.ini > python -m configtool
[app]
name = rocket
description = A app to launch a Space Rocket
[uwsgi]
socket = /var/run/spacerocket.socket

-get argument will print the value of the key on the section you want, you can
also do -section and -get will use that for section.

$ cat config.ini | python -m configtool -get app.name
rocket
$ cat config.ini | python -m configtool -section app -get description
A app to launch a Space Rocket

Specify just the section, and it will output the config syntax for just that
section

$ cat config.ini | python -m configtool -get app
[app]
name = rocket
description = A app to launch a Space Rocket

Easily update values, just by using set

$ python -m configtool -set app.name "spacerocket" > config.ini
$ cat config.ini
[app]
name = spacerocket
description = A app to launch a Space Rocket

You can also convert syntax if you had json or yaml python modules available::

$ cat config.ini | python -m configtool -o yaml
app:
name: spacerocket
description: A app to launch a Space Rocket

$ config.ini > python -m configtool -o json
{"app":{"name":"spacerocket","description":"A app to launch a Space Rocket"}}
