In this tutorial you will learn how to read ini configuration file in php, how to use python configparser to read write configuration file!
Here we see how to work with ini file in python application, here are few points to learn:
Ini is basically a plain text file with .ini extension, this is how your mypy.ini file may look like
[mypy] # Specify additional search paths for Mypy #mypy_path = stubs # Increase strictness of checks disallow_any_decorated = True disallow_any_expr = True disallow_any_generics = True disallow_subclassing_any = True disallow_untyped_defs = True disallow_untyped_calls = True strict_optional = True warn_no_return = True # Display statistics after running #dump_type_stats = True #dump_inference_stats = False # Ignore errors in 'tests' directory #[mypy-tests] #ignore_errors = True [dbinfo] dbhost=localhost dbport=3406 dbusername=dusername dbpassword=dpassword database=wtrdnname
Notice all values are written in plain text format, even string values are without "double quote", anything within box bracket indicates a new section like "[dbinfo]"
Now you learn how to read configuration values from INI file in python class
Once you have ConfigParser object ready, now you can read any key with built in-method, Note: for different data type there are different methods, for example .get method for string data type and .getint method for integer data type.
So the python code for reading will look like.
value = config.get('section-name', 'key')
from configparser import ConfigParser class StudentDTO(): def __init__(self): config = ConfigParser() config.read('mypy.ini') database = config.get('dbinfo', 'database') dbusername = config.get('dbinfo', 'dbusername') dbpassword = config.get('dbinfo', 'dbpassword') dbhost = config.get('dbinfo', 'dbhost')
Now we see how to write ini file in python using ConfigParser
