Get python's text codecs

Project description

Get text codecs

Python library for encodings.

A single get_text_codecs method is used for returning a python dict with all available codec names for encoding or decoding text. Dictionary keys are the default codec names and each entry contains a single list with all aliases, if any.

Installation & Usage

pip install

pip3 install 'gettextcodecs>=0.0.3' --upgrade


After installing the "library" you can import it and use it with:

from gettextcodecs.methods import get_text_codecs
codec_names = get_text_codecs()

Variable codec_names now contains all available codec names as dictionary keys and a list of their aliases as their value. The list will be empty if no aliases exist.


  • as_list: Optional. Get a single list with all possible codec names.
