Credential Manager

Project description

[![Build Status](](

# Installing
$ pip install credentials

# Usage

## Default
Using default setup, this will try and load credentials first from the processes environement variables and then from `~/.credentials.json`
from credentials import credentials
# load credentials up front
creds = credentials.require(['cred1', 'cred2'])
# load credentials as needed
my_cred = credentials.load('cred_3')

## Setting up your own loader
# Only load credentias from environement
from credentials import Credentials, EnvBackend
creds = Credentials([EnvBackend()])

# Implementing your own backend
A backend is just an object with a `load` method. Method should take a `key` as an argument and return the associated credentials or `None` if it could not be loaded.

class UniversalCredLoader(object):

def load(self, key):
return 42
from credentials import Credentials
creds = Credentials([UniversalCredLoader()])
>>> 42
