Parsing Fortigate configuration in Python

Posted by & filed under Python.

Had to parse some Fortinet configuration in python so here is my solution:

from collections import defaultdict
from pprint import pprint
import sys

f = lambda: defaultdict(f)

def getFromDict(dataDict, mapList):
    return reduce(lambda d, k: d[k], mapList, dataDict)

def setInDict(dataDict, mapList, value):
    getFromDict(dataDict, mapList[:-1])[mapList[-1]] = value    

class Parser(object):

    def __init__(self):
        self.config_header = []
        self.section_dict = defaultdict(f)    

    def parse_config(self, fields): # Create a new section
        self.config_header.append(" ".join(fields))

    def parse_edit(self, line): # Create a new header

    def parse_set(self, line): # Key and values
        key = line[0]
        values = " ".join(line[1:])
        headers= self.config_header+[key]

    def parse_next(self, line): # Close the header

    def parse_end(self, line): # Close the section

    def parse_file(self, path):          
        with open(path) as f:
            gen_lines = (line.rstrip() for line in f if line.strip())
            for line in gen_lines:
               # pprint(dict(self.section_dict))
                # Clean up the fields and remove unused lines.            
                fields = line.replace('"', '').strip().split(" ")

                valid_fields= ["set","end","edit","config","next"]
                if fields[0] in valid_fields:
                    method = fields[0]
                    # fetch and call method
                    getattr(Parser, "parse_" + method)(self, fields[1:])

        return self.section_dict

config = Parser().parse_file('FGT02_20130308.conf')

print config["system admin"]["admin"]["dashboard-tabs"]["1"]["name"]
print config["firewall address"][""]["type"]
