On-demand loading and configurable paths
pathconfig is a small library that aims to make it easy to make your application configurable and find its data easily.
it features the following central functions/classes:
- pathconfig.load_configuration creates an AppContext object that allows to retrieve configuration variables (get_config_var)
- pathconfig.Factory is a class for objects that have parts that can be loaded on-demand. If obj is your object, and it has a load_banana method, then obj.get(‘banana’) will either returned the cached banana or invoke its load_banana method to retrieve one.
- pathconfig.load_plugin provides a friendly wrapper around setuptools’ entry_points mechanism.
# Install The most convenient way is to install pathconfig via pip or easy_install:
pip install pathconfig
