Fast quoting and unquoting of urls.
Fast percent encoding / decoding for python.
This library is not intended to be a replacement for urllib.
urllib is part of the Python standard library and should be your go-to choice to quote and unquote URLs. However, should quoting or unquoting of URLs be known to be a performance bottleneck and you are fine with the encoding described below, then by all means have fun using this library.
from urlquote import quote quoted = quote('/El Niño/') assert(quoted == '/El%20Ni%C3%B1o/'.encode('utf-8'))
Since this library uses a
cffi interface it should work fine with any version of Python. For Linux the wheel has to be build against a version of libc older or equal to the version of libc on the platform the wheel will be used on.
pip install urlquote
quote operates on UTF-8-encoded bytes. If passed a string, it will encode it into UTF-8 first. It will always return UTF-8-encoded bytes.
unquote behaves the same way.
The following encodings are offered.
DEFAULT_QUOTING is used in case the quoting parameter is not specified.
|Name||Additional encoded characters|
Non printable and non standard ASCII characters are always quoted. The
PYTHON_3_7_QUOTING is going to work the same way in every Python version the name is only refering to the
urllib default encoding used in Python 3.7.
To build it you need to install Rust and Cargo. Than you can proceed to build the wheel with:
python -m pip install build
To setup the development environment run:
python -m pip install -e .[test]
To execute the tests run
There are also some Rust-only unit tests. To execute them change into the
rust subdirectory and call.
