Unified config handling for client libraries and programs

README.rst

os-client-config

Warning

os-client-config has been superceded by openstacksdk. While os-client-config will continue to exist, it is highly recommended that users transition to using openstacksdk directly.

os-client-config is a library for collecting client configuration for using an OpenStack cloud in a consistent and comprehensive manner. It will find cloud config for as few as 1 cloud and as many as you want to put in a config file. It will read environment variables and config files, and it also contains some vendor specific default values so that you don't have to know extra info to use OpenStack

  • If you have a config file, you will get the clouds listed in it
  • If you have environment variables, you will get a cloud named envvars
  • If you have neither, you will get a cloud named defaults with base defaults
