ubinascii – binary/ASCII conversions

This module implements a subset of the corresponding CPython module, as described below. For more information, refer to the original CPython documentation: binascii.

This module implements conversions between binary data and various encodings of it in ASCII form (in both directions).


ubinascii.hexlify(data[, sep])

Convert binary data to hexadecimal representation. Returns bytes string.

Difference to CPython

If additional argument, sep is supplied, it is used as a separator between hexadecimal values.


Convert hexadecimal data to binary representation. Returns bytes string. (i.e. inverse of hexlify)


Decode base64-encoded data, ignoring invalid characters in the input. Conforms to RFC 2045 s.6.8. Returns a bytes object.


Encode binary data in base64 format, as in RFC 3548. Returns the encoded data followed by a newline character, as a bytes object.
