Fast, safe and non-recursive implementation of Bittorrent bencoding for Python 3

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/acatton/flatbencode.svg?branch=master

Fast, safe and thoroughly tested implementation of bencode in pure Python 3, without any C extension.

This is called flatbencode because the algorithm for decoding a bencode structure is non-recursive, thus preventing RuntimeException.

Usage

>>> from flatbencode import encode, decode
>>> encode({b'foo': [b'bar', 1]})
b'd3:fool3:bari1eee'
>>> decode(b'ldei0e0:e')
[OrderedDict(), 0, b'']

Run tests

$ pip install pytest hypothesis
$ py.test -v
