Having a working API for this milestone
Options on using python for that.
#3 Updated by Redmine Admin almost 12 years ago
I'll move this ticket again to the next planned release 0.64.2 because it is deeply related to the python modules.
I coded a small configuration parser but I could then see that the amount of variables, customizations, data structures... needed a much more powerful parser than that.
I didn't want to create any external dependecy on the code so I discarded any solution involving external libraries, as well as tools for creating my own parser like flex/bison.
As in the first comment for this ticket I mentioned the "options on using python", python includes all I needed and it is also deeply related to future releases.
I decided to use this ticket as the first native python module for DrQueue. Thus the need to move it to the milestone at least.
I will write some notes about it on the wiki page ConfigModule.
