PyPI version GitHub license PyPI - Python Version

A simple, yet highly customizable python package to generate professional keys.


Use the package manager pip to install key_generator.

pip install key-generator


from key_generator.key_generator import generate

key = generate(seed = 101)
print(key.get_key())  # be1679-6ae28652eb-fa7cd6-de96-a8cc

key_custom = generate(5, '-', 3, 3, type_of_value = 'hex', capital = 'none', extras = ['%', '&', '^'], seed = 42).get_key()
print(key_custom)  # ^54-10e-fa&-%34-e3e

key_custom_2 = generate(2, ['-', ':'], 3, 10, type_of_value = 'char', capital = 'mix', seed = 17).get_key()
print(key_custom_2)  # ZLFdHXIUe-ekwJCu


parameter type optional default description
num_of_atom int yes 5 Number of parts/atoms of the key to be generated.
separator string,list yes '-' Separates the parts/atoms by separator is given a string.
If given a list, randomly chooses separators in between the atoms.
min_atom_len int yes 3 Minimum length of each part/atom.
max_atom_len int yes 10 Maximum length of each part/atom.
type_of_value string yes 'hex' Can be one of the following 3 options: hex, char, int.

hex -> key can have values only from 0-9, a-f, or A-F(depending on capital parameter).
char -> key can have values only from a-z or A-Z(depending on capital parameter).
int -> key can have values only between 0-9.
capital string yes 'none' Can be one of the following 3 options: none, all, mix.

none -> All the values in the generated key will be lowercase.
all -> All the values in the generated key will be uppercase.
mix -> A mix of both upper and lower case randomly.
extras list yes [] List of extra symbols or characters that you want to include in each part/atom.
Adds these symbols to the bucket to randomly choose characters in the atom.
seed int yes None Choose a seed value for the random key generated.
Returns the same pseudo-random value every time for a given seed value.


Run the following commands and check all tests pass.

>> git clone
>> cd key-generator/tests
>> python       # will show how many tests passed and how many failed
