url canonicalization library for python and java

Project description

build status

A URL canonicalization (normalization) library for Python and Java.

It currently provides:

  • A URL parser which preserves the input bytes exactly
  • A precanned canonicalization ruleset that tries to match the normalization implicit in the parsing rules used by browsers
  • An alternative URL serialization suitable for sorting and prefix-matching: SSURT.

Status: Stable and in production use for some time. But no API or output stability guarantees yet. There are differences in features between Java and Python versions.

Examples

Python

>>> import urlcanon
>>> input_url = "http://///EXAMPLE.com:80/foo/../bar"
>>> parsed_url = urlcanon.parse_url(input_url)
>>> print(parsed_url)
http://///EXAMPLE.com:80/foo/../bar
>>> urlcanon.whatwg(parsed_url)
<urlcanon.parse.ParsedUrl object at 0x10eb13a58>
>>> print(parsed_url)
http://example.com/bar
>>> print(parsed_url.ssurt())
b'com,example,//:http/bar'
>>>
>>> rule = urlcanon.MatchRule(ssurt=b'com,example,//:http/bar')
>>> urlcanon.whatwg.rule_applies(rule, b'https://example..com/bar/baz')
False
>>> urlcanon.whatwg.rule_applies(rule, b'HTtp:////eXAMple.Com/bar//baz//..///quu')
True

Python releases are available in PyPI:

pip install urlcanon

Java

String inputUrl = "http://///EXAMPLE.com:80/foo/../bar";
ParsedUrl parsedUrl = ParsedUrl.parseUrl(inputUrl);

System.out.println(parsedUrl);
// http://///EXAMPLE.com:80/foo/../bar

Canonicalizer.WHATWG.canonicalize(parsedUrl);

System.out.println(parsedUrl);
// http://example.com/bar

System.out.println(parsedUrl.ssurt());
// "com,example,//:http/bar"
