An approach to stacking configurations made up of nested dictionaries

Project description


WARNING This library is currently under development and is not functional.

The hornet library aims to provide a relatively simple interface for working with stacking nested configurations from multiple sources. These sources may be JSON files, YAML files, specially formatted environment variables, databases, or anything else that you can dream up.

Basic Usage







The recommended way to install is using pip or conda:

pip install hornet
conda install hornet

Or it can be installed from source using setuptools:

python install

Bugs and issues

If you find a bug, let me know at Or if you feel really motivated, write the fix and submit a pull request.


I’m using MIT because that’s what I’m most familiar with, but really I don’t care who uses this software or for what reason. I make no claim to its accuracy or reliability, use at your own risk. This is just a side project for me, so don’t expect too much. If you need it under a different license, just shoot me an email and I’ll work with you on how to make that happen.
