Extension for dealing with valid and invalid UTF-8 strings

Project description

pyutf8 provides tools to efficiently deal with the validation and cleanup of UTF-8 strings. The primary use case is “garbage in utf-8 out”.

Usage:

>>> from pyutf8 import valid_utf8_bytes
>>> SNOWMAN = u'\N{SNOWMAN}'
>>> SNOWMAN_BYTES = SNOWMAN.encode('utf-8')
>>> valid_utf8_bytes(SNOWMAN) == SNOWMAN_BYTES
True
>>> valid_utf8_bytes(SNOWMAN_BYTES) == SNOWMAN_BYTES
True
>>> valid_utf8_bytes('\xff' + SNOWMAN_BYTES + '\xff') == SNOWMAN_BYTES
True
