docopt wrapper adding config file and environment variable support.

Project Description

Love using docopt over argparse or Click? Wish it took care of environment variables and/or config files?

docoptcfg is a wrapper for docopt which handles reading configuration data from environment variables and/or an INI/INF configuration file. You can (1) enable only the environment variable part, (2) only the config file part, (3) or use both at the same time:

  1. args = docoptcfg(__doc__, env_prefix='MYAPP_')
  2. args = docoptcfg(__doc__, config_option='--config')
  3. args = docoptcfg(__doc__, config_option='--config', env_prefix='MYAPP_')

📖 Full documentation:

  • Python 2.6, 2.7, PyPy, PyPy3, 3.3, 3.4, and 3.5 supported on Linux and OS X.
  • Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, and 3.5 supported on Windows (both 32 and 64 bit versions of Python).
