Python implementation of the multihash specification

Project Description

This is an implementation of the multihash specification in Python. The main component in the module is the Multihash class, a named tuple that represents a hash function and a digest created with it, with extended abilities to work with hashlib-compatible hash functions, verify the integrity of data, and encode itself to a byte string in the binary format described in the specification (possibly ASCII-encoded). The decode() function can be used for the inverse operation, i.e. converting a (possibly ASCII-encoded) byte string into a Multihash object.

For more information, please see the documentation under the docs directory and the docstrings in the multihash package. Ready-to-read documentation is also available in

This package requires at least Python 3.4.
