Configo 1.2

Easy way to use existing JSON, XML or YAML config files from bash shell/scripts

Configo
=======

Easy way to use existing JSON, XML or YAML config files from bash shell/scripts

# How can i use it?
...

###Sample json config file
Lets say that this config file is located `/etc/myapp/config.json`

{
"config_version": "1.0",
"application": "My Application",
"webservers": {
"api": {
"host": "api.some.com",
"port": "80",
"apikey": "somekey",
"apisecret": "somesecret"
},

"img": {
"host": "img.some.com",
"port": "8013",
"apikey": "ihuu",
"apisecret": "somesecret"
},

"video": {
"host": "video.some.com",
"port": "80",
"apikey": "somekey",
"apisecret": "somesecret"
}
},

"databases": {
"web": { "host": "db.web.some.com", "port": "3306", "username": "myuser", "password": "mypass" },
"office": { "host": "db.office.some.com", "port": "3306", "username": "myuser", "password": "mypass" }
}
}

#Usage examples
These examples will show you several different ways about how you can work with your JSON/YAML/XML config files in shell with ease.
All examples use the sample config file above.


### Syntax
1. `configo from config get key`
2. `configo get key` //That's what i say 'lazy way' ... more info below

### Shell example in standard way
# configo from /etc/myapp/config.json get application
//-> My Application

### Shell example in standard way with `nested` properties
# configo from /etc/myapp/config.json get webservers.api.host
//-> api.some.com

### Shell scripts example in standard way
TARGET_CONF="/etc/myapp/config.json";
CONFIGO="configo from $TARGET_CONF";
VARNAME=`$CONFIGO get databases.office.password`;
echo $VARNAME;
//-> mypass

### Lazy example
If you want you can assign the path to your config file to `CONFIGO_CONF` variable and `configo` will use it without having to define it as an argument every time.

export CONFIGO_CONF=`/etc/myapp/config.json`

API_WEBSERVER_HOSTNAME=`configo get webservers.api.host`
//-> api.some.com

OFFICE_DB_HOST=`configo get databases.office.host`
//-> db.office.some.com

#Requirements

* Python 2.6+
* PyYAML (latest version recommended) - tested with PyYAML 3.10

# Installation

from source

# git clone git@github.com:mignev/configo.git
# cd configo
# python setup.py install


with pip

# pip install configo

# Testing
All tests are located in `tests` dir. They are 2 different test suites. One test suit for `configo api` and another for the `command line tool`.

So what should we do to run tests:

cd tests
ln -s ../configo configo
ln -s ../bin bin

If you want to run `configo api` tests just run:

python configo_tests.py

If you run `command line tool` tests you must do the following:

export CONFIGO_CONF=`pwd`/fixtures/config.json # this is necessary to work tests with lazy syntax

... and after that just run:

python configo_executable_tests.py

# TODO
- Add xml support
- Add yaml support

# CHANGELOG

### 1.2:

- add yaml support
- add tests for yaml support
- small refactoring

### 1.1:

- add tests for api and command line tool
- refactor configo api and command line tool
