A simple Python library for human readable file sizes (or anything sized in bytes).

Project description

hurry.filesize

hurry.filesize a simple Python library that can take a number of bytes and returns a human-readable string with the size in it, in kilobytes (K), megabytes (M), etc.

The default system it uses is “traditional”, where multipliers of 1024 increase the unit size:

>>> from hurry.filesize import size
>>> size(1024)
'1K'

An alternative, slightly more verbose system:

>>> from hurry.filesize import alternative
>>> size(1, system=alternative)
'1 byte'
>>> size(10, system=alternative)
'10 bytes'
>>> size(1024, system=alternative)
'1 KB'

A verbose system:

>>> from hurry.filesize import verbose
>>> size(10, system=verbose)
'10 bytes'
>>> size(1024, system=verbose)
'1 kilobyte'
>>> size(2000, system=verbose)
'1 kilobyte'
>>> size(3000, system=verbose)
'2 kilobytes'
>>> size(1024 * 1024, system=verbose)
'1 megabyte'
>>> size(1024 * 1024 * 3, system=verbose)
'3 megabytes'

You can also use the SI system, where multipliers of 1000 increase the unit size:

>>> from hurry.filesize import si
>>> size(1000, system=si)
'1K'
