  • Cosy per-thread settings container with environment var support;

  • CLI for environment probing.

Code sample

from envbox import get_environment

# Detect current environment type
# and get its object.
# Default detection sources:
# 1. ``PYTHON_ENV`` env variable
# 2. ``environment`` file contents
# By default this function will also try to read env variables from .env files.
env = get_environment()
# >> development

# >> False

# The same as env['HOME'] and env.HOME
# >> /home/idle/

# {'UNBUFFERED': '1', 'IOENCODING': 'UTF-8', 'PATH': ...}

Read the docs for more examples.


$ envbox probe
# >> Detected environment type: development (Development)

$ envbox show
# >> [...]
# >> SHELL = /bin/bash
# >> [...]

Note: envbox CLI requires click package available.
