A module for working with 10- and 13-digit ISBNs

Project description

Development status Test state on master Coverage state on master Current PyPI release Supported Python versions Documentation Recent developments

Introduction

pyisbn is a GPL v3 licensed module for working with various book identification numbers. It includes functions for conversion, verification and generation of checksums. It also includes basic classes for representing ISBNs as objects.

See the doc directory for installation instructions and usage information, you can also view the content online.

Requirements

pyisbn does not depend on any modules that aren’t included in Python’s standard library, and as such should run with Python 3.6 or newer [1]. If pyisbn doesn’t work with the version of Python you have installed, open an issue and I’ll endeavour to fix it.

The module have been tested on many UNIX-like systems, including Linux and OS X, but it should work fine on other systems too.

[1]Versions v1.2 and earlier will run on older Python versions, right back to 2.4.

Example

The simplest way to show how pyisbn works is by example, and here goes:

>>> import pyisbn
>>> Permutation_City = "1-85798-218-5"
>>> pyisbn.validate(Permutation_City)
True
>>> pyisbn.convert(Permutation_City)
'9781857982183'

or using the object pattern use:

>>> Permutation_City = pyisbn.Isbn10("1-85798-218-5")
>>> Permutation_City.validate()
True
>>> Permutation_City.convert()
'9781857982183'
>>> print(Permutation_City)
ISBN 1-85798-218-5

All independent functions and classes contain (hopefully) useful docstrings.

API Stability

Now that pyisbn 1.0 has been released the API will is frozen, and any changes which aren’t backwards compatible will force a major version bump.
