PyAutoLens uses a number of configuration files that customize the default behaviour of the non-linear searches, visualization and other aspects of PyAutoLens.

Descriptions of every configuration file and their input parameters are provided in the README.rst in the config directory of the workspace


By default, PyAutoLens looks for the config files in a config folder in the current working directory, which is why we run autolens scripts from the autolens_workspace directory.

The configuration path can also be set manually in a script using the project PyAutoConf and the following command (the path to the output folder where the results of a non-linear search are stored is also set below):

from autoconf import conf
