"Flip" characters in a string to create an "upside-down" impression.

Project Description

Upsidedown is a simple Python module that “flips” latin characters in a string to create an “upside-down” impression. It makes extensive use of compatible latin characters as encoded in Unicode.


>>> import upsidedown
>>> print upsidedown.transform('hello world!')
¡pꞁɹoʍ oꞁꞁǝɥ


Run the following to deploy the library on your system:

$ python install

This does not only install the library but also registers an executable file (on Win32 systems as upsidedown.exe in C:\Python26\Scripts\).

Command line

You can also easily use this software on the command line:

$ echo hello world\! | upsidedown
¡pꞁɹoʍ oꞁꞁǝɥ
