A quantity aware configObject

Project description


QCOBJ a Python package to handle quantity-aware configuration files

In short

A Python package to help scientists and researchers to add physical quantities to the configuration files they use in their computer programs. Highlights:

  • Parameter values are validated against user defined specifications to ensure they are in the correct range and eventually converted to the requested unit of measurement.

  • A graphical user interface to display and modify configuration file content is included.

  • More than two configuration files can be compared highlighting the differences between them.

Install QCOBJ

QCOBJ can be installed without the graphical user interface:

pip3 install git+

or with the GUI:

pip3 install git+[with_pyside2]


pip3 install git+[with_pyqt5]

QCOBJ was published on SoftwareX, Volume 7, January–June 2018, Pages 347-351.
