Environment variables are read if they start with appname in uppercase with underscore, for example:

TEST_VAR=1

Config files compatible with ConfigParser are read and the section name appname is read, example:

[appname]
var=1
Files are read from:
  • /etc/appname/config
  • /etc/appfilerc
  • ~/.config/appname/config
  • ~/.config/appname
  • ~/.appname/config
  • ~/.appnamerc
  • .appnamerc
  • file provided by config variable in args
