A simple way to configure python libraries

Project description


A simple way to configure applications using pure python files.


# contents of default config (
bob = 1
harry = {0: 1, 1: 3}

# contents of secondary config (~/
bob = 2
harry = {1: 2, 3: 4}

# contents of primary config (
bill = 4
harry = {1: 6}

# now use the configuration:

from figcon import Figcon

# give figcon a path to the default config file
config = Figcon(default_path='base_config', primary_path='', 

# objects are updated based on lowest priority (default) to highest (primary)

assert config.bob  == 2
assert config.harry == {0:1, 1: 6, 3:4}


  • 3 step hierarchical configuration using a default, primary, and secondary config file.
  • Config files are pure python which allow lots flexibility.
  • Dont use this if you don't trust your users.
