What is easygconf?

easygconf provids an easy, pythonic way to access GConf through a dict-like interface.


>>> from easygconf import GConfDict
>>> gc=GConfDict('/apps/test-application')
>>> gc['title']
>>> gc['title']='Hello world!'
>>> gc['title']
'Hello world!'
>>> gc['list']=range(3)
>>> gc['list']
(0, 1, 2)
>>> gc.unset('title')
>>> gc.unset('list')
>>> gc['title']
>>> gc['list']
>>> gc.sync()


easygconf is alpha software. So far it seems to work for me but it may have severe bugs I didn’t noticed yet. Use it at your own risk.

easygconf is still under development and the API may change in the future.
