Native Python implementation of Ed25519 group elements and operations.

Project description

Native Python implementation of Ed25519 group elements and operations.

PyPI version and link. travis coveralls


This library provides a native Python implementation of Ed25519 group elements and a number of operations over them. The library makes it possible to fill gaps in application prototypes that may have specific limitations with respect to their operating environment or their ability to rely on dependencies.

The implementation is based upon and is compatible with the corresponding implementation of Ed25519 group elements used in libsodium.

Package Installation and Usage

The package is available on PyPI:

python -m pip install ge25519

The library can be imported in the usual ways:

import ge25519
from ge25519 import *

Testing and Conventions

All unit tests are executed and their coverage is measured when using nose (see setup.cfg for configution details):


Concise unit tests are implemented with the help of fountains and new reference bit lists for these tests can be generated in the following way:

python test/

Style conventions are enforced using Pylint:

pylint ge25519
