Find the vendor for a given MAC address

Project description

Mac Vendor Lookup

This library provides an easy way to get vendor information from a MAC address. It contains a local copy of the IEEE's OUI prefix list. It has an asynchronous interface using Python 3's asyncio as well as a regular synchronous interface for old-school usage.


pip install mac-vendor-lookup

Basic Usage

from mac_vendor_lookup import MacLookup




Update the vendor list

The library contains a list of MAC prefixes obtained at build-time. If you need up-to-date information, you can download a fresh copy of the list directly from IEEE with MacLookup.update_vendors or AsyncMacLookup.update_vendors:

from mac_vendor_lookup import MacLookup

mac = MacLookup()
mac.update_vendors()  # <- This can take a few seconds for the download

def find_mac(mac_address):

Async Interface

There is also an asynchronous interface available:

from mac_vendor_lookup import AsyncMacLookup

async def main():
    mac = AsyncMacLookup()
    print(await mac.lookup("98:ED:5C:FF:EE:01"))
