Python library to manage application user settings

Project description


Python library to manage application user settings


This library allows you to write and read key-value settings for a Python application in a JSON file inside the home directory of the user who is running the application.

Usage example

import userconf as uc

# Set the working application ID. The JSON file containing the settings will be
# saved in a directory which name is the dot character "." followed by the ID
# provided when calling the following function. This directory will be created
# inside the user's home directory.

# Write a setting value. This is done by providing its ID and value. The value
# can be any JSON serializable object (e.g. a string, a list, a dictionary...).
uc.set_setting_value("setting_example", "Example value")

# Read a setting value. This is done by providing its ID and an optional
# default value that will be returned if the setting doesn't exist.
v = uc.get_setting_value("setting_example", "Default value")

Function list

get_setting_value(id, default_value = None)
set_setting_value(id, value)
