Config encryption

Project description


Dirigible is a minimal python package the provides two shortcuts for working
with config files:

1) it can transparently read config files encrypted with Ansible Vault, and
2) shortcuts for finding and loading configs files in common locations, like
~/.{{appname}} or /etc/{{appname}}, or looking in a location specified by
an environment variable "${{appname|upper}}_CONFIG_DIR" if defined.


Load a basic, unencrypted config file from

from os.path import join, abspath, dirname
import digible

class MyConfig(dirigible.Config):

appname = 'testapp'
defaults = join(dirname(abspath(__file__)), 'defaults')

def cfg(self):
return self.load_config_filename('myapp.cfg')
