This is vin-parser package description
Library that provides functions to work with VIN strings.
vin-parser is available on PyPI and can be installed using pip.
$ pip install vin-parser
All the public functions are exported to the package namespace. We'll alias it as vp in the following examples.
>>> import vin_parser as vp
vis return parts of the VIN string.
>>> vin = "1GYFK63878R248711" >>> vp.check_no(vin) '7'
check_no returns the VIN check digit, i.e. position 9 in the VIN string. It returns for all VINs, even for those that don't use the check digit schema.
>>> vp.wmi(vin) '1GY' >>> vp.vds(vin) 'FK6387'
Lowercase VINs are accepted:
>>> vp.vis(vin.lower()) '8R248711'
small_manuf are predicate functions, i.e. functions that return True or False.
check_valid returns True if the VIN's check digit matches the computed value.
is_valid returns True if the provided VIN is valid. Because the use of VIN check digit is not adopted worldwide, the check_valid test is not performed when verifing the validity of a VIN.
manuf parse the VIN and return the values. year returns a positive integer, while the others return a string with their name.
>>> vp.country(vin) 'United States' >>> vp.year(vin) 2008 >>> vp.manuf(vin) 'General Motors USA'
parse calls all the other functions and returns the results in a dict if the provided VIN is valid.
online_parse queries the nhtsa api with the provided VIN. Empty values are removed from the response and the rest are returned in a python dict. No other transformations are performed on the keys or values.
Note that, unlike
online_parse doesn't check if the VIN is valid before sending it to the remote server.
CHARS constant is a sorted string with all the valid characters of a VIN: A to Z, 1 to 9 and 0, except for I, O and Q.
