Extract, clean and transform ISBNs (International Standard Book Number).

Project Description

Info

isbntools provides several useful methods and functions to validate, clean and transform ISBN strings.

Typical usage:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import isbntools

Several scripts are provided to use from the command line:

  • to_isbn10 ISBN13 : transforms an ISBN10 number to ISBN13
  • to_isbn13 ISBN10 : transforms an ISBN13 number to ISBN10
  • isbn_info ISBN : gives you the group identifier of the ISBN
  • isbn_mask ISBN : masks (hyphenate) an ISBN (split it by identifiers)
  • isbn_meta ISBN : gives you the main metadata associated with the ISBN (uses wcat.org)
  • isbn_validate ISBN : validates ISBN10 and ISBN13
  • isbn_stdin_validate : to use with posix pipes (e.g. cat ISBNs | isbn_stdin_validate)
  • isbntools : writes version and copyright notice

Install

From a command line enter:

$ pip install isbntools

or:

$ easy_install isbntools

or:

$ pip install isbntools-0.7.2.tar.gz

Known Issues

  1. Some of the methods don’t work with ISBNs with group identifier 979 (will be fixed in the next major version)
  2. The meta method and the isbn_meta script sometimes give a wrong result (this is due to errors on the wcat.org service)
