Module reahl.component.config

The Reahl configuration utilities.


class reahl.component.config.Configuration

A collection of ConfigSettings for a component. To supply configuration for your component, subclass from this class and assign each wanted ConfigSetting as a class attribute. Assign the required filename and config_key class attributes in your subclass as well. The resultant class should also be listed in the .reahlproject file of your component in a <configuration> element.

filename = None

The name of the config file from which this Configuration will be read.

config_key = None

The variable name to which an instance of this Configuration will be bound when reading filename

  • default – The default value to be used if not specified in a config file.
