humanhash: Human-readable representations of digests.
The simplest ways to use this module are the :func:`humanize` and :func:`uuid`
functions. For tighter control over the output, see :class:`HumanHasher`.

class HumanHasher(object):
Transforms hex digests to human-readable strings.
The format of these strings will look something like:
`victor-bacon-zulu-lima`. The output is obtained by compressing the input
digest to a fixed number of bytes, then mapping those bytes to one of 256
words. A default wordlist is provided, but you can override this if you
As long as you use the same wordlist, the output will be consistent (i.e.
the same digest will always render the same representation).
def __init__(self, wordlist=DEFAULT_WORDLIST):
if len(wordlist) != 256:
raise ArgumentError("Wordlist must have exactly 256 items")
self.wordlist = wordlist
def humanize(self, hexdigest, words=4, separator='-'):
Humanize a given hexadecimal digest.
Change the number of words output by specifying `words`. Change the
word separator with `separator`.
>>> digest = '60ad8d0d871b6095808297'
>>> HumanHasher().humanize(digest)
# Gets a list of byte values between 0-255.
bytes = map(lambda x: int(x, 16),
map(''.join, zip(hexdigest[::2], hexdigest[1::2])))
# Compress an arbitrary number of bytes to `words`.
compressed = self.compress(bytes, words)
# Map the compressed byte values through the word list.
return separator.join(self.wordlist[byte] for byte in compressed)
def compress(bytes, target):
Compress a list of byte values to a fixed target length.
>>> bytes = [96, 173, 141, 13, 135, 27, 96, 149, 128, 130, 151]
>>> HumanHasher.compress(bytes, 4)
[205, 128, 156, 96]
Attempting to compress a smaller number of bytes to a larger number is
an error:
>>> HumanHasher.compress(bytes, 15) # doctest: +ELLIPSIS
Traceback (most recent call last):
ValueError: Fewer input bytes than requested output
length = len(bytes)
if target > length:
raise ValueError("Fewer input bytes than requested output")
# Split `bytes` into `target` segments.
seg_size = length // target
segments = [bytes[i * seg_size:(i + 1) * seg_size]
for i in xrange(target)]
# Catch any left-over bytes in the last segment.
segments[-1].extend(bytes[target * seg_size:])
# Use a simple XOR checksum-like function for compression.
checksum = lambda bytes: reduce(operator.xor, bytes, 0)
checksums = map(checksum, segments)
return checksums
def uuid(self, **params):
Generate a UUID with a human-readable representation.
Returns `(human_repr, full_digest)`. Accepts the same keyword arguments
as :meth:`humanize` (they'll be passed straight through).
