Validate usernames against a blacklist

Project description

This library lets you validate usernames against a blacklist. The blacklist data is based on the data from The-Big-Username-Blacklist and contains privilege, programming terms, section names, financial terms and actions.

How it works

the_big_username_blacklist exposes a function named validate, you can use that function to see if a word is occuring in the blacklist.


Validating a username is easy, if the word is in the blacklist, return False (validation failed), otherwise True. Example:

>>>> from the_big_username_blacklist import validate
>>>> validate("root")
>>>> validate("martin")


This package is available through pip

$ pip install the-big-username-blacklist


Make sure you have the necessary dependencies (pytest)

pip install -r requirements/tests.txt

Then run the tests
