pyproperties provides support for properties files in Python. Being written entirely from scratch it is not in any way derived from java.util.Properties.

There are projects which try to mimic j.u.P. This is not one of them.

It can read, parse and store properties files but also provides some more advanced functionality like manipulating comments and type-guessing.
