A tool for configuring your application via environment variables


Gets configuration from environment variables that start with app_name optionally allowing you to load the environment variables as json

Example with load_as_json=True

from env_config import get_envvar_configuration

# Assuming that there are the following environment variables
# MYAPP_BOOL=false
# MYAPP_DICT={"some_key": "some_value"}
# MYAPP_STRING=blahblahblah
# NOTMYAPP_VARIABLE=this wont be recognized

config = get_envvar_configuration('myapp')

# prints out {'BOOL': False, 'DICT': {'some_key': 'some_value'}, 'STRING': 'blahblahblah'}

Example with load_as_json=False

config = get_envvar_configuration('myapp', load_as_json=False)

# prints out {'BOOL': 'false', 'DICT': '{"some_key": "some_value"}', 'STRING': 'blahblahblah'}
