Python-based configuration reader

Project description

Python-based configuration reader

Simply enough, loads a file into a Python module object but does not place it in the module cache or otherwise bind it.

>>> import posixpath
>>> conf = load(posixpath.__file__)
>>> conf  # doctest: +ELLIPSIS
<module '<config>' from '...'>
>>> conf.pathsep

And so on. You could also use load_dict to get a dict instead:

>>> type(load_dict(posixpath.__file__))
<type 'dict'>

Though, if you try to load files that aren’t recognized or loadable, you get an error:

>>> load("lala.ini")
Traceback (most recent call last):
ConfigurationError: no suitable loader for config module 'lala.ini'
