  • Simply Parse in C

    This looks interesting. I created and maintain a library for INI parsing that got surprisingly popular -- it's tiny, so is good for embedded systems. This API has a very similar feel to mine, including the callback for every key/value pair with a void* userdata.
  • Include library with meson

    I don't know if it's the best place to post that but on the meson subreddit there is not much people. I want to include the library INIH (which use meson too) to my project but I don't know how.

    One simple format is INI, which has the benefit of being simple and ubiquitous. It has rules for quoting and whitespace. It's human readable and human editable. ini.h is a very simple INI parser library, but there are loads of them.
