PyRandomString is a python library to generate N random list of string of M length It is parameterized to generate strings of random number and length which is returned as a list. It can be used to generate a large number of numbers, strings etc.


  • count : Integer - Total number of strings to be generated (default is 10). Not applicable for get_string() method
  • max_length : Integer - Maximum length of each generated string (default is 10)
  • random_length : Boolean choice - if the length of each word should be random or not. Incase of random length the maximum value is 'max_length'
  • symbols : String - Custom symbols which you want to use during random string generation. It should be a subset of the supported symbols and it is applicable only when the 'string_type' is of type 'SYMBOLS' or '_WITH_SYMBOLS'
  • string_type : PyRandomString.StringType - Type of characters to be used for generating random strings
    • NUMERIC : 0123456789
    • SYMBOLS : " !#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[]^_`{|}~
    • ALPHABET_LOWERCASE : abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
    • ALPHA_NUMERIC_LOWERCASE : abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789
    • ALPHA_NUMERIC_ALL_CASE : abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789
    • ALPHABET_LOWERCASE_WITH_SYMBOLS : abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz" !#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[]^_`{|}~
    • ALPHABET_ALL_CASE_WITH_SYMBOLS : abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ" !#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[]^_`{|}~
    • ALPHA_NUMERIC_LOWERCASE_WITH_SYMBOLS : abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789" !#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[]^_`{|}~
    • ALPHA_NUMERIC_ALL_CASE_WITH_SYMBOLS : abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789" !#$%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?@[]^_`{|}~

How to use

import PyRandomString

py_random_string = PyRandomString.RandomString()

## calling method to get a single random string
random_string = py_random_string.get_string(string_type=PyRandomString.StringType.ALPHA_NUMERIC_ALL_CASE, random_length=False, max_length=10)
print('Single random string is {}'.format(random_string))

## calling method to get a single random string with custom symbols
random_string = py_random_string.get_string(string_type=PyRandomString.StringType.ALPHA_NUMERIC_ALL_CASE_WITH_SYMBOLS, random_length=False, max_length=10, symbols='+-*#$%^&')
print('Single random string with custom symbol is {}'.format(random_string))

## calling method to get a list of random string
random_strings = py_random_string.get_strings(string_type=PyRandomString.StringType.ALPHA_NUMERIC_ALL_CASE_WITH_SYMBOLS, random_length=False, max_length=10, count=5)
print('Following are the generated random strings \n{}'.format('\n'.join(random_strings)))

## calling method to get a list of random string and forcing to use characters of each type
random_strings = py_random_string.get_strings(string_type=PyRandomString.StringType.ALPHA_NUMERIC_ALL_CASE_WITH_SYMBOLS, random_length=False, max_length=10, count=5, must_include_all_type=True)
print('Following are the generated random strings \n{}'.format('\n'.join(random_strings)))
