A library to create base92 encoded strings

Project description

A little library for encoding byte-strings into strings easily typeable on a standard US 101-key keyboard, with strictly better information density than base64 or base85 encodings.


Fire up your favorite python:

>>> import base92
>>> base92.decode(base92.encode('hello world'))
'hello world'
>>> base92.encode('\x61\xf2\x05\x99\x42')

We use doctests, so running the tests is as easy as executing the library file with your python.


This library is pure python: there may be a cbase92 forthcoming, backed by a C library.

This library has not been tested with python3.
