Module usage

The UuidShortener object can be created with/without a prefix.

Example 1: without prefix
from uuid_shortener import UuidShortener
from uuid import uuid4

if __name__ == "__main__":
    print('******** Without prefix')

    shortener = UuidShortener()
    uuid_4 = uuid4()

    short_uuid = shortener.shorten(uuid_4)
    unshortened_uuid = shortener.unshorten(short_uuid)

    print('Uuid to shorten: {}'.format(str(uuid_4)))
    print('shortened uuid: {}'.format(short_uuid))
    print('unshortened uuid(original uuid): {}'.format(str(shortener.unshorten(short_uuid)), str(uuid_4)))
Output 1:
******** Without prefix
Uuid to shorten: 177d1b53-77d5-42b2-8b8f-8d86579deb52
shortened uuid: 3Ueemi554rN46ioLFw3dZG
unshortened uuid(original uuid): 177d1b53-77d5-42b2-8b8f-8d86579deb52

Example 2: with prefix
from uuid_shortener import UuidShortener
from uuid import uuid4

if __name__ == "__main__":
    print('******** With prefix')

    shortener = UuidShortener('meow')  # ;)
    uuid_4 = uuid4()

    short_uuid = shortener.shorten(uuid_4)
    unshortened_uuid = shortener.unshorten(short_uuid)

    print('Uuid to shorten: {}'.format(str(uuid_4)))
    print('shortened uuid: {}'.format(short_uuid))
    print('unshortened uuid (original uuid): {}'.format(str(shortener.unshorten(short_uuid)), str(uuid_4)))
Output 2:
******** With prefix
Uuid to shorten: 2bea23d4-2b96-485d-8788-0c606ab93319
shortened uuid: meow-6qwbaCZnHtxJsj4uJTKJSV
