A multi-layered approach to settings

Project description

This provides a simple way to handle settings in a multi-layer fashion, which allows you to composing settings by add in different configuration components. It will read from files, objects, and environment variables.

Example Usage:

from flapjack_stack import FlapjackStack
settings = FlapjackStack()

Which will create a new FlapjackStack instance, then read settings in from a file, then the thing object and finally from the environment. This would result in a group of settings like:




loaded from env


loaded from thing object


loaded from ‘/path/to/our_file’


Empty created during init

And settings would be returned from the top to the bottom. For example if we had a setting called COOKIES in both the thing object and our_file, the one from the thing object would be returned.

NOTE add_layer_from_env() only searchs for environment variables already in the settings object regardless of their layer that are prefixed with an FJS_ at the moment it is called. So if you add the variable later, it will not be seen.
