jsonConfig

jsonConfig is a Python package that provides sparse JSON based config files with GUI editor. The config files are referred to as being sparse because only those settings which are different than the default values are stored in the config files. Default config options are defined programmatically which allows defaults to be updated with out overwriting a users options.

Usage

Creating defaults

from jsonConfig import *

cfg = Config()
cfg.add_setting( 'Category 1', 'option1', 'Value1', alias = 'Option #1', options = ['Value1', 'Value2'], type = CT_COMBO, about = 'An example option.' )
cfg.add_setting( 'Category 1', 'option2', True, alias = 'Option #2', type = CT_CHECKBOX )
cfg.add_setting( 'Category 2', 'option1', 'value', type = CT_LINEEDIT)

Accessing values

>>> cfg
{'Category 2': {'option1': 'value'}, 'Category 1': {'option2': True, 'option1': 'Value1'}}

>>> cfg['Category 1']['option1']
'Value1'

Loading config file

config.json

{
  "Category 1": {
    "option1": {
      "value": "Value2"
    }
  }
}
cfg.set_user_file("config.json")
>>> cfg
{'Category 2': {'option1': 'value'}, 'Category 1': {'option2': True, 'option1': 'Value2'}}

GUI Editor

from PySide.QtGui import *
from jsonConfig import ConfigEditor

app = QApplication([])
editor = ConfigEditor(app, cfg, 'Demo Config Editor')
editor.setup()
app.exec_()
