Example

Writing

There are two methods available for writing the contents of the config file to disk: write and writeAsync.

const ConfigParser = require('configparser');

const config = new ConfigParser();

// Adding sections and adding keys
config.addSection('User');
config.set('User', 'token', 'some value');
config.set('User', 'exp', 'some value');

// With String Interpolation, %(key_name)s
config.addSection('MetaData');
config.set('MetaData', 'path', '/home/%(dir_name)s/');
config.set('MetaData', 'dir_name', 'me');

config.write('my-cfg-file.cfg');
File
[User]
token=some value
exp=some value

[MetaData]
path=/home/%(dir_name)s/
dir_name=me
Reading

There are two methods available for reading the contents of the config file from disk: read and readAsync.

config.read('my-cfg-file.cfg');
config.sections(); // ['User', 'MetaData']
config.get('User', 'token'); // 'some value'
config.get('MetaData', 'path'); // '/home/me/'
