Module settings

source code


This module provides Dock-global settings as fields. Throughout Biskit.Dock a (environment-dependent) parameter such as, e.g., ssh_bin can be addressed as:
>>> import Biskit.Dock.settings as S
>>> bin = S.ssh_bin

However, since a user should not be required to hack python modules, ssh_bin is not actually defined in Instead, the value is taken from ~/.biskit/settings_Dock.cfg -- which should have an entry like ssh_bin=/bin/ssh # comment. If this entry (or the config file) is not found, uses the default value from biskit/external/defaults/settings_Dock.cfg.

If missing, the user configuration file ~/.biskit/settings_Dock.cfg is created automatically during the startup of Biskit (i.e. for any import). The auto-generated file only contains parameters for which the default values don't seem to work (invalid paths or binaries).

See Biskit.SettingsManager
