configman 1.3.0

Flexible reading and writing of namespaced configuration options


Copyright Mozilla, 2013 - 2015

General tool for setting up configuration options per namespaces. Supports reading and writing configs generally from and into config files.

Running tests

We use [nose]( to run all the unit tests and [tox]( to test multiple python versions. To run the whole suite just run:


tox will pass arguments after to nosetests. To run with test coverage calculation, run tox like this:

tox – –with-coverage –cover-html –cover-package=configman

If you want to run a specific test in a testcase class, though, you might consider just using nosetests:

nosetests configman.tests.test_config_manager:TestCase.test_write_flat

Making a release

Because our .travis.yml has all the necessary information to automatically make a release, all you need to do is to push a commit onto master. Most likely you will only want to do this after you have edited the configman/version.txt file. Suppose you make some changes:

git add configman/ git commit -m “fixed something”

You might want to push that to your fork and make a pull request. Then, to update the version and make a release, first do this:

vim configman/version.txt git add configman/version.txt git commit -m “bump to version x.y.z” git push origin master

After that travis, upon a successful build will automatically make a new tarball and wheel and upload it to [PyPI](
