New TOML encoder/decoder

Project description

qtoml is another Python TOML encoder/decoder. I wrote it because I found uiri/toml too unstable, and PyTOML too slow.

For information concerning the TOML language, see toml-lang/toml.

qtoml currently supports TOML v0.5.0.


qtoml supports the standard load/loads/dump/dumps API common to most similar modules. Usage:

>>> import qtoml
>>> toml_string = """
... test_value = 7
... """
>>> qtoml.loads(toml_string)
{'test_value': 7}
>>> print(qtoml.dumps({'a': 4, 'b': 5.0}))
a = 4
b = 5.0

>>> infile = open('filename.toml', 'r')
>>> parsed_structure = qtoml.load(infile)
>>> outfile = open('new_filename.toml', 'w')
>>> qtoml.dump(parsed_structure, outfile)


qtoml is tested against the alethiophile/toml-test test suite, forked from uiri’s fork of the original by BurntSushi. To run the tests, check out the code including submodules, install pytest, and run pytest under the tests subdirectory.
