Translate python objects to bytes.

Project description

Byte Converter

Build Status for master Coverage Status

Development Build: Build Status Coverage Status


Install python with version >= 3.6 and pip.

Install package with

python3 -m pip install --upgrade byte-converter --user


Basic types

from byte_converter import to_bytes, read_bytes

int_bytes = to_bytes(int(input("Write a number: ")))
dict_bytes = to_bytes({"a": 13 * 2, "b": "asdf"})

Own object

from byte_converter import to_bytes, read_bytes

class User:
    bc_ignore_attributes = ["this_attribute_will_be_ignored"] # you can use regex also
    this_attribute_will_be_ignored = 13
    def __init__(self, username, password):
        self.username = username
        self.password = password

user = User(input("username: "), input("password: "))
user_in_bytes = to_bytes(user)
user = read_bytes(user_in_bytes, parsable_classes=[User])

If you wan't to read objects, you must set a parsable_classes argument for reading with a list of readable classes.

Ignore or whitelist attributes

Set the bc_ignore_attributes attribute to a list of name of attributes, which will be ignored. (You can use regex). Set the bc_whitelisted_attributes attribute to a list of name of attributes. Only these attributes will be saved and all other attributes will be ignored, if you set this attribute to a list.
