Project description

Settings manager for Python web-apps and projects. Another?

The Great Idea

Some time ago we at oDesk PS developed django-setman app, which is the answer if you need to specify custom settings in your Django project and add ability to setup these settings from UI (like Django admin CRUD).

But later, we thought, what if modify this app and make it universal? We mean, not to use only with Django, but for example with Flask as well.

So please welcome setman - universal Python app to work with settings that could be customized via UI.


Supported frontends (frameworks)

Supported backends (ORM)

  • Django ORM
  • File-based backend (supported formats: ini, json or pickle)


On most UNIX-like systems, you’ll probably need to run these commands as root or using sudo.

To install use:

$ pip install setman


$ python install

Also, you can retrieve fresh version of setman from GitHub:

$ git clone git://

and place setman directory somewhere to PYTHONPATH (or sys.path).


setman is licensed under the BSD License.

Usage. More information

See full documentation at docs/ directory or browse online here.

Bugs, feature requests?

If you found some bug in setman library, please, add new issue to the project’s GitHub issues.
