Cinco Config

Build Status Coverage Status

Next generation universal configuration file parser. The config file structure is defined programmatically and expressively, no need to create classes and inheritance.

Let's get right to it:

# app_config.py
import getpass
from cincoconfig import *

# first, define the configuration's schema -- the fields available that
# customize the application's or library's behavior
schema = Schema()
schema.mode = ApplicationModeField(default='production')

# nested configurations are built on the fly
# http is now a subconfig
schema.http.port = PortField(default=8080, required=True)

# each field has its own validation rules that are run anytime the config
# value is loaded from disk or modified by the user.
# here, this field only accepts IPv4 network addresses and the user is
# required to define this field in the configuration file.
schema.http.address = IPv4AddressField(default='127.0.0.1', required=True)

schema.http.ssl.enabled = BoolField(default=False)
schema.http.ssl.cafile = FilenameField()
schema.http.ssl.keyfile = FilenameField()
schema.http.ssl.certfile = FilenameField()

schema.db.host = HostnameField(allow_ipv4=True, required=True, default='localhost')
schema.db.port = PortField(default=27017, required=True)
schema.db.name = StringField(default='my_app', required=True)
schema.db.user = StringField(default='admin')

# some configuration values are sensitive, such as credentials, so
# cincoconfig provides config value encryption when the value is
# saved to disk via the SecureField
schema.db.password = SecureField()

# once a schema is defined, build the actual configuration object
# that can load config files from disk and interact with the values
config = schema()

# print the set http port
print(config.http.port) # >>> 8080

config.db.password = getpass.getpass("Enter Password: ") # < 'password'

# set a config value manually
if config.mode == 'production':
    config.db.name = config.db.name + '_production'

print(config.dumps(format='json', pretty=True).decode())
# {
#   "mode": "production",
#   "http": {
#     "port": 8080,
#     "address": "127.0.0.1"
#     "ssl": {
#       "enabled": false
#     }
#   },
#   "db": {
#     "host": "localhost",
#     "port": 27017,
#     "name": "my_app_production",
#     "user": "admin",
#     "password": {
#       "method": "best",
#       "ciphertext": "<ciphertext>"
#     }
#   }
