Project description

What is unitconv?

A units converter that understands a lot of written queries and produce a nice human response:

>>> import unitconv
>>> unitconv.convert("3 meters in cm")
'3 meters = 300 centimeters'

>>> unitconv.convert("1000 grams in kg")
'1000 grams = 1 kilogram'

>>> unitconv.convert("2 cups to l")
'2 US cups = 0.4732 litres'

>>> print unitconv.convert("300 yards")
300 yards = 274.32 meters

>>> unitconv.convert("34 days in weeks")
'34 days = 4.8571 weeks'

>>> unitconv.convert("45mg in ounces")
'45 milligrams = 0.0016 ounces'

>>> print unitconv.convert("300K in °f")
300K = 80.33°F

>>> unitconv.convert("50 cubic feet in m3")
'50 cubic feet = 1.4158 cubic meters'

>>> unitconv.convert("2 cups in l")
'2 US cups = 0.4732 litres'

>>> unitconv.convert("4 teaspoons")
'4 US teaspoons = 19.7157 millilitres'

You can also use it as a script:

$ unitconv 42 km to miles
42 kilometers = 26.0976 miles

Project’s history

Code here comes from other internal Canonical’s project, this part was opensourced in 2018:

I forked that to bring it to GitHub, migrate it to Python 3, shape it more like a project (have a, etc.), and do some releases.
