global configparser object to be used across modules

Project description

pypi versions license


  • Creates a global configparser object, regardless of the project and module in need of it
  • A docker container can be used to host protected config files, consumable by the parser object
  • verify_required_options merges default options with the configparser ones, and optionally ENV options while validating required options have been set either way.

Getting Started

In a project using globconf:

from globconf import config, verify_required_options, read_config, fetch_config
# when starting the app, the config can be loaded from a specific path:
read_config(path='flaf.ini', force=True)  # reloads config, even if it already is loaded

# or from the globconfd container - caching supported as convenience for offline devs:
fetch_config('', 'user', 'pass', cache_timeout=86400, force=True)

# if config is not explicitly loaded, config.ini is read from current folder (if there).

# verify_required_options checks presence of options, yielding a dict with the merged options 
# for the section
DEFAULTS = {'required': None, 'optional_a': 1234}
cfg = verify_required_options('Some section', ['required', 'options', 'for', 'the', 'section'])
# beyond this, its still basic ConfigParser as you know it..

In modules:

from globconf import verify_required_options
class cls(object):
    def __init__(self):
        self.cfg = verify_required_options('service now', ['host', 'user', 'pwd'])
        if self.cfg.get('verify_ssl', True) is False:
            import urllib3

And your module is happy as long as someone has initialised the needed section in the global config.

globconfd via docker

docker run -it -v ./users.conf:env_users.conf -v ./cfgs:/configs -p 5000:5000 ssch/globconfd:latest -d


configparser, diskcache, requests
