DIPvendor

A simple database and python script to register vendor IDs.

A Minimally Viable Vendor Registration System

The JSON file is the master file that keeps track of DIP maker vendor IDs. Please only register what you need.

In brief:

  • Clone this repository to your computer
  • run the genID.py script
  • create a pull request to update

The simple python 2.7 script can be called from the terminal. Call script with three arguments: contact email address, name of company, and, optionally, a preferred 32-bit vendor ID number in hex format. For example:

$ python genID.py person@dipmaker.com "DIP Makers Inc." 0x00000001'

The script will check if the email is a valid format, but will not attempt any further validation. If you provide a vendor ID, the script will make sure it is not already taken. If it is, it will offer to randomly generate one for you.

An example session:

$ python genID.py person@dipmaker.com "DIP Makers Inc." 0x009d011a
 :( Your chosen Vendor ID 0x009d011a is already taken.
 > Type "e" to exit or "g" to generate a new ID: g
 + Your new vendor ID is: 0x20bc2e55
 :) vendorDB updated

Once the script is updated, create a pull request on this repo so we can officially add the Vendor ID.
