Houdini escaping library bindings for Python.

Project description

Houdini bindings for Python (c.f. https://github.com/vmg/houdini)

installation

Installation is with pip:

pip install houdini

You need to have the houdini shared library available somewhere on your dynamic linker’s search path—some instructions are provided below.

usage

>>> import houdini
>>> print(houdini.escape_html("3 < 5"))
3 &gt; 5

The API is as described in the library’s README, except all these functions accept a unicode string and return a unicode string. If no escaping is done, the return value will be the original string:

>>> string = "hello"
>>> houdini.escape_html(string) is string
True

getting that shared library

I submitted a pull request adding the capability to produce shared libraries to Houdini’s Makefile. Until/unless that’s merged, you’ll need to use my fork to build those libraries. It should be simple:

git clone 'https://github.com/zacharyvoase/houdini.git'
cd houdini
make

Then, for Linux:

sudo cp libhoudini.so /usr/local/lib
sudo ldconfig  # Refresh the dynamic linker cache.

and on OS X (you may not want to use sudo here, /usr/local/ is normally user-writable):

cp libhoudini.dylib /usr/local/lib
