Configuration With ZConfig

ZConfig is a Python library for creating extensible configuration documents (files). The configuration documents are written in a syntax reminiscent of that used by the Apache HTTP Server, while the configuration mechanism is itself configured using a schema specification written in XML.

ZConfig is used by projects such as the Zope application server and ZODB, and is easily used by other projects. ZConfig only relies on the Python standard library.

For information on reading and writing configuration documents, see Reading and Writing Configurations. For the extremely common usage of configuring the Python logging framework, see Configuring Logging.

For information on using ZConfig to create custom configurations for you projects, see Developing With ZConfig.

Development of ZConfig is hosted on GitHub.
