Hello Python List,
Elektra provides a universal and secure framework to store configuration
parameters in a global, hierarchical key database. The core is a small
library implemented in C. The plugin-based framework fulfills many
configuration-related tasks to avoid any unnecessary code duplication across
applications while it still allows the core to stay without any external
dependency. Elektra abstracts from cross-platform-related issues with an
consistent API, and allows applications to be aware of other applications'
configurations, leveraging easy application integration.
While the core is in C, both applications and soon plugins (not yet relased)
can be written in python. The API is complete and fully functional but not
yet stable. So if you have any suggestions, please let us know.
Additionally the latest release added:
- C++11 und lua bindings
- a plugin to read virtually every configuration file around
- logging to journald (next to syslog)
- many other improvements and bug fixes
- compiler support for icc (+in clang warnings were fixed)
- for more details see:

Make sure to enable BUILD_SWIG and BUILD_SWIG_PYTHON.
