    or special dictionaries.  There are two common patterns to populate the

    Either you can fill the config from a config file::


    Or alternatively you can define the configuration options in the
    module that calls :meth:`from_object` or provide an import path to
    a module that should be loaded.  It is also possible to tell it to
    use the same module and with that provide the configuration values
    just before the call::

        DEBUG = True
        SECRET_KEY = 'development key'

    In both cases (loading from any Python file or loading from modules),
    only uppercase keys are added to the config.  This makes it possible to use
    lowercase values in the config file for temporary values that are not added
    to the config or to define the config keys in the same file that implements
    the application.

    Probably the most interesting way to load configurations is from an
    environment variable pointing to a file::


    In this case before launching the application you have to set this
    environment variable to the file you want to use.  On Linux and OS X
    use the export statement::

        export YOURAPPLICATION_SETTINGS='/path/to/config/file'

    On windows use `set` instead.

    :param root_path: path to which files are read relative from.  When the
                      config object is created by the application, this is
                      the application's :attr:`~flask.Flask.root_path`.

        -   an actual object reference: that object is used directly

        Objects are usually either modules or classes.

        Just the uppercase variables in that object are stored in the config
        after lowercasing.  Example usage::

        rather configuration defaults.  The actual config should be loaded
