Easy settings for Python projects
This module provides a spy object that resolves an attribute by searching sequentially in following places:
manually set settings
user-provided settings module
manually set fallbacks
Manally set settings:
from settingspy import spy spy[‘this_is_int’] = 123 spy[‘this_is_str’] = ‘string’
Inside the directory specified by the SETTINGSPY_VARIABLE_CATALOG environment variable, a file named something may exist with the desired value. File contents are restricted to booleans, integers, floats, strings. They are parsed as if eval()ed, so strings should be wrapped in parentheses.
$ echo 123 > “$SETTINGSPY_VARIABLE_CATALOG/this_is_int” $ echo “‘string’” > “$SETTINGSPY_VARIABLE_CATALOG/this_is_str”
User provided settings module
in file mysettings.py: this_is_int = 123 this_is_str = ‘string’
import os; os.environ[‘SETTINGSPY_SETTINGS_MODULE’] = ‘mysettings’ from settingspy import spy; print(spy.this_is_int, spy.this_is_str)
Manually set fallbacks – in case everything else fails
from settingspy import spy spy.setfallback(‘this_is_int’, 123) spy.setfallback(‘this_is_str’, ‘string’)
This module provides a spy object that resolves a setting attribute by searching sequentially in following places: manually set settings, directory variables (also known as variable catalog), user-provided settings module, manually set fallback settings.
