A Python interface to the ANU Quantum Random Numbers Server

Project description

This module provides a Python interface to The ANU Quantum Random Number Generator JSON API.


>>> import quantumrandom
>>> quantumrandom.get_data()
>>> quantumrandom.get_data(data_type='uint16', array_length=5)
[42796, 32457, 9242, 11316, 21078]
>>> quantumrandom.get_data(data_type='hex16', array_length=5, block_size=2)
['f1d5', '0eb3', '1119', '7cfd', '64ce']

Valid data_type values are uint16 and hex16, and the array_length cannot be larger than 100. If for some reason the API call is not successful, or the incorrect amount of data is returned, this function will raise an exception.


Due to the lack of an SSL/TLS interface at the moment, all data is sent over the wire in clear text.
