Provides bootstrapping for sane configuration management

Project description

# Mandrel (python-mandrel) #

Mandrel provides bootstrapping and configuration tools for consistent, straightforward project config management.

Mandrel is a highly idiosyncratic way to organize stuff and is ultimately counterproductive. The author and maintainer recommends against its continued use. This project is in maintenance mode only and the author cannot stress enough the degree to which alternate approaches to bootstrapping should be found. Don’t use mandrel for new work. Deprecate its use where you can. (FWIW, the author prefers to drive configuration via environment variables, generally speaking, and only use specialized file-based config with JSON or YAML if the configuration needs are especially nuanced.)

Use Mandrel to:

  • bootstrap your python project configuration

  • manage configuration file location/access

  • manage logging configuration and Logger retrieval

Separate projects can rely on Mandrel for these purposes, and when they’re brought together (as eggs, for instance) to a single application, their configuration can be managed simply in an easily-configurable way.
