Project description

hashver Build Status

Is a python module to derive a unique numeric value from a version string and vice versa, adhering to following constraints:

  • Resultant number must be unique for all possible values of a, b, c and d
  • Each of a, b, c and d needs to be below certain maximum unsigned int guided by max possible bits allotted to each version component
  • We should be able to derive unique a.b.c.d back from given number
  • If a.b.c.d => x and p.q.r.s => y then, a.b.c.d < p.q.r.s => x < y


After performing python -m pip install hashver, execute python code as mentioned below.

>>> from hashver import HashVer
>>> hob = HashVer()
>>> hob.get_num('1.0.6')
>>> hob.get_version_str(8590000133)
>>> # if your version is of format a.b.c.d, each of which should be at most 2^16
>>> hob = HashVer(bits_per_component='')
>>> hob.get_num('')
>>> hob.get_version_str(2533274796949514)

Or if you have curl,

curl -skL | python - 1.0.6 8590000133

1.0.6 : 4294967302
8590000133 : 2.1.5

Modification and Testing

If any modification is done to hashver source, use following to validate changes,

# ensure various combinations of version string or number can be derived from each other
python -B ${hashver-root}/ 2533274796949514 --bpc : 2533274796949514

# or simply add them to the existing test suite in hashver/ and run pytest
cd ${hashver-root} && pytest
