Reading, writing and manipulating text-based subtitle files

Project description

Python Package aeidon for Subtitles


aeidon is a Python package that provides classes and functions for dealing with text-based subtitle files of many different formats. Functions exist for reading and writing subtitle files as well as manipulating subtitle data, i.e. positions (times or frames) and texts.


The latest stable release is available via PyPI.

pip install -U aeidon



When packaging both aeidon and gaupol in a Linux distro, it's best to use the switches in the main for a consistent whole.

sudo python3 --without-gaupol install --prefix=/usr/local
sudo python3 --without-aeidon install --prefix=/usr/local

Note that the --with-* and --without-* are global options and must be placed before any commands.

Of the dependencies listed in the file, iso-codes and chardet are to be associated with aeidon. If aeidon is installed using the --without-iso-codes switch, then iso-codes is required instead of optional. gaupol should depend on the remaining dependencies as well as aeidon of the same version.


The aeidon package is part of the Gaupol subtitle editor, where the other package, gaupol, provides the GTK user interface.

Separating a user interface independent general-purpose subtitle editing package from Gaupol has been an afterthought and thus not well designed to be a reusable component, but on the other hand is proven, working and maintained code.
