An elegant hierarchical (or "onioned") properties parser

Project description


ONION_PROPS is a simple python module meant to simplify interaction with java .properties files.
It provides the benefit of being able to parse properties hierarchically to provide a more robust way of storing and using properties.
Currently it provides the ability to:
* load properties from a file (and interact with it as you would a normal dictionary)
* interact (add/delete/edit) with properties
* save properties to a file

ONION_PROPS also supports comments, you can specify whether or not to include comments within any interactor method as well as whether or not to include a timestamp.


To import base parser class:
```from onion_props import PropParser```

To add properties to the parser object, it is advised that you also import:
```from onion_props import Property, Properties```
As they are the custom data storage classes PropParser uses.
It is possible to add properties as standard dictionary key-values, but in order to add comments, you must import the `Property` class.

Changelog (Onion_props)
- Changed name from prop_parser to onion_parser to accommodate for pypi

- Removed integrated modules from install_requires to allow proper installation
