xini - eXtract pyproject.toml configs to INI

pyproject.toml is a fantastic idea. I want all my tool configurations in my pyproject.toml file. Not all my tools support a pyproject.toml configuration option though, but why wait?

xini pulls configurations from a pyproject.toml file for:

  • pytest
  • flake8
  • coverage
  • pylint

And generates the appropriate ini-config files.


... pip install xini

How Does It Work?

  1. Write tool configuration in the pyproject.toml under the appropriate "[tool.toolname]" section. This becomes the standard location for your configurations. Keep pyproject.toml in source control as normal.

  2. Run xini in the root project directory where the pyproject.toml file exits. (xini does not search for pyproject.toml files anywhere but the current directory.)

  3. xini generates standard named ini-config files in the current directory (e.g. .flake8, .coveragerc, etc.). Tools that use old-style ini file formats can then run using the generated config file. No need to maintain these ini-config files in source control.

  4. Make config changes in pyproject.toml and run xini to regnerate ini-config files.

The Future

It is my sincere hope that there is no future for this project. I wish all tool developers to build support for pyproject.toml as a configuration option so a tool like xini is unnecessary.
