Project Description

# ip6words [![Pypi Version][pypi-version-badge]][pypi-version-link] [![Dependency CI][dependency-ci-badge]][dependency-ci-link] [![Apache 2 License][license-badge]][license-link]

Converts IPv6 addresses to and from a user friendly format using words.

#### Usage

<p align="center">
<img src="" alt="Gif usage examples">

# Script entry point "ip6words" can be used instead of manually launching the script through python if the package was installed.
$ ip6words ::

$ ip6words -h
python ([-h] | [-d] | [-u] | [-e]) (<ip6words-address-to-convert> | <ipv6-to-convert>)
[-h] ~ This dialog
[-u] ~ The usage dialog
[-d] ~ Delete the dilled (pickled) word list in order to regenerate it before executing
[-e] ~ Explode the results instead of compressing them

#### Install

pip install ip6words

#### Requirements

- Python 3.3+ (NOT tested at all on Python 2)
- nltk <sub>(*will download these packages on first run that doesn't use dill, download them yourself beforehand if you'd like to choose the download directory*)</sub>
+ words - <sub>*optional* ~ see note #3</sub>
+ brown - <sub>*optional* ~ see note #3</sub>
+ abc - <sub>*optional* ~ see note #3</sub>
+ inaugural - <sub>*optional* ~ see note #3</sub>
+ genesis - <sub>*optional* ~ see note #3</sub>
- dill

#### Notes

1. This is designed to have the same words always point to the same IP and vice versa. The only thing that
would alter this would be a change in the base nltk data, causing a shift in the frequency of words.
2. Included with this tool is a dilled (or pickled) word list. If you wish to re-generate that dill you
must delete the file or run using the \[-d] argument.
3. In practice, this means you will actually never have to download the nltk packages yourself if you never
use the \[-d] argument and thus always load the wordlist from the dill.
