NEON parser for Python

Project Description

# neon example

    street: 742 Evergreen Terrace
    city: Springfield

    + Lisa
    + Maggie

entity: Column(type=integer)


To install NEON parser for Python, simply run:

$ pip install neon-py


Decoding NEON config files is super easy:

import neon

with open('/path/to/config.neon', 'r') as fd:
    config = neon.decode(
