this can technically be implemented using:

ini = %o:__new__
ini = %o:__init__

...but it can cause the paths to be resolved and/or change from the first, and IMO feels clunky (we currently use this to essentially pack all our environment configs into one, for convenience... short of full config generation, i like it :)

would it be awkward to allow something like (examples):

ini = :__init__
ini = .:__init__

...i know i looked into this before and it seemed doable, but i ran a bit short on time.

i like the first form

ini = :section

should be pretty easy to implement, i will work on that soon


unbit commented Mar 25, 2013

implemented with c9bc066

it works only for .ini files as the other parsers should be heavily changed (expecially the xml one) to avoid loops

nice nice, yeah i saw this last night, thanks.

i am planning a mass exodus of my apps to JSON configs soon[-ish] ... should we leave the ticket open until a solution for other configs emerges?
