python library to make and get the encoding of unicode code point in UTF8.

Project description

Python library to make and get the encoding of unicode code points in UTF8.

tables of rules for encoding UTF8

Design UTF-8 can be seen in the following table that originally proposed by Dave Prosser and subsequently modified by Ken Thompson.

Bit Code Point The first code point The last code point Byte in Squence
7 U+0000 U+007F 1
11 U+0080 U+07FF 2
16 U+0800 U+FFFF 3
21 U+10000 U+1FFFFF 4
26 U+200000 U+3FFFFFF 5
31 U+4000000 U+7FFFFFFF 6

You can read more on the table above in a link.

simple examples using this package.

Quick Start

from utf8_codepoint import CodePoint

# unicode symbol for European currency
euro_money = "U+20AC"

# create instance object
cp = CodePoint(euro_money)

# get representation integer of the Unicode Code Point

the result is:

226 130 172

to a hexadecimal representation

from utf8_codepoint import CodePoint


the result is:

E2 82 AC

to a string with binary representation

from utf8_codepoint import CodePoint


the result is:

11100010 10000010 10101100

to a list of binary string representation

from utf8_codepoint import CodePoint


the result is:

['11100010', '10000010', '10101100']

displays all the data with beautiful style

from utf8_codepoint import CodePoint


the result is:

{'0x20AC': {'bit_list': ['11100010', '10000010', '10101100'],
    'code_point': 16,
    'hexa_list': ['0xe2', '0x82', '0xac'],
    'initial_bit': '1110',
    'integer_list': [226, 130, 172]}}

Get all data

from utf8_codepoint import CodePoint


the result is:

                'bit_list': ['11100010', '10000010', '10101100'],
                'integer_list': [226, 130, 172],
                'initial_bit': '1110',
                'hexa_list': ['0xe2', '0x82', '0xac'],
                'code_point': 16

If you want to turn it into a json format, you can pass a true value as a parameter in the method get_all:
