Build Status


This project aims at being a specs-conforming and strict parser and writer for TOML files. The library currently supports version 0.4.0 of the specs and runs with Python 2.6+ and 3.3+.


pip install pytoml

The interface is the same as for the standard json package.

>>> import pytoml as toml
>>> toml.loads('a = 1')
{'a': 1}
>>> with open('file.toml', 'rb') as fin:
...     obj = toml.load(fin)
>>> obj
{'a': 1}

The loads function accepts either a bytes object (that gets decoded as UTF-8 with no BOM allowed), or a unicode object.

Use dump or dumps to serialize a dict into TOML.

>>> print toml.dumps(obj)
a = 1


To run the tests update the toml-test submodule:

$ git submodule update --init --recursive

Then run the tests:

$ python test/
