An alternative Python implementation of Douglas Crockford's base32 encoding scheme

Project description

A Python module implementing the alternate base32 encoding as described by Douglas Crockford at:

In baas32, this encoding is slightly altered.

He designed the encoding to:

  • Be human and machine readable
  • Be compact
  • Be error resistant
  • Be pronounceable

It uses a symbol set of 10 digits and 22 letters, excluding I, L O and S. Decoding is not case sensitive, and ‘i’ and ‘l’ are converted to ‘1’, ‘o’ is converted to ‘0’ and ‘s’ is converted to ‘5’. Encoding uses only upper-case characters.

Hyphens may be present in symbol strings to improve readability, and are removed when decoding.

A check symbol can be appended to a symbol string to detect errors within the string.
