The menu provides you with a tree that\n organizes the directives by namespaces.\n\n The documentation contents for each directive tells you all the available\n attributes and their semantics. It also provides a link to the interface\n the directive confirms to. If available, it will even tell you the\n file the directive was declared in. At the end a list of available\n subdirectives is given, also listing the implemented interface and\n available attributes.\n '

Description.

get(key, default=None)[source]
