A minimalistic Count-min Sketch for Python

Project description


This is a minimalistic
`Count-min Sketch <>`_
for Python, featuring some cool things like:
- Being able to count anything that is hash-able by python (numbers, strings, tuples, inmutables, duck-typeds, etc.).
- Tests
- No dependencies
- No foreign languages, just 100% python.

This software was written by Rafael Carrascosa, you can contact me at

from countminsketch import CountMinSketch
sketch = CountMinSketch(1000, 10) # table size=1000, hash functions=10
sketch.add("oh yeah")
sketch.add(1, value=123)
print sketch["oh yeah"] # prints 1
print sketch[tuple()] # prints 1
print sketch[1] # prints 123
