Package for converting quantities in different unit.

Project description

Unit Converter


Package for parsing as string quantities with or without units.

Basic usages

>>> from unit_converter import convert, converts
>>> convert('2.78 daN*mm^2', 'mN*µm^2')
>>> Decimal('2.78E+10')
>>> converts('2.78 daN*mm^2', 'mN*µm^2')
>>> '2.78E+10'
>>> convert('2.78', 'mN*µm^2', 'daN*mm^2')
>>> Decimal('2.78E+10')

Note: It is necessary to provide the value as a string. Indeed, the high precision of conversion (1E-27) is possible only with string, by using Decimal object in replacement of float object.
