Typesafe Config Guice

Allows Guice to @Inject configuration values into your application derived from Typesafe Config.

Build Status

Available on Maven Central.



Step 1:

Annotate configuration injection points (Constructors, Providers, Provider methods, Setter methods, Fields) with @TypesafeConfig("config.path.key")

Step 2:

Bootstrap your application with Guice and the TypesafeConfigModule. Configuration values annotated with @TypesafeConfig will be scanned for on the classpath, and then bound from your supplied Typesafe Config file.

Config config = ConfigFactory.load("config.conf");
Injector injector = Guice.createInjector(
	TypesafeConfigModule.fromConfigWithPackage(config, "");
	// ... Add your other modules here

Step 3:



  • Plain Old Java Objects which follow JavaBean conventions (zero-args constructor, getters and setters) can be injected.
  • Supports injections of java.time.Duration objects with config parameters defined as "10 seconds", "10 minutes" etc.
  • Supports injections of com.typesafe.config.ConfigMemorySize objects with config parameters defined as "512k" or "2M" etc.
  • Supports injections of boolean, where the matching config parameter can be "true", "false", "yes" or "no".
  • Supports injections of List types of primitives: boolean, int, double, long, string, java.time.Duration, com.typesafe.config.ConfigMemorySize
  • Supports injections of java.util.Map<String, Object>
  • Supports injections of POJO Lists.
  • Extensive test coverage
