Common

codext also provides some very common encodings, for the sake of simplicity (e.g. while chaining codecs with the CLI tool).


A1Z26

This simple codec converts letters to their order number in the alphabet using a separator between characters and keeping words separated by a whitespace. It is similar to the consonant-vowel-indices encoding.

a1z26 text <-> alphabet order numbers a1z26, a1z26-/, a1z26-,, ... this codec does not preserve the case and is dynamic (separator of characters in each word can be customized among these: "-_/|,;:*")
>>> codext.encode("This is a test", "a1z26")
'20-8-9-19 9-19 1 20-5-19-20'
>>> codext.decode("20-8-9-19 9-19 1 20-5-19-20", "a1z26")
'this is a test'

Octal

This simple codec converts characters into their octal values.

octal text <-> octal digits octals groups of 3-chars octal values when encoded
octal-spaced text <-> spaced octal digits octals-spaced whitespace-separated suite of variable-length groups of octal digits when encoded
>>> codext.encode("this is a test", "octal")
'164150151163040151163040141040164145163164'
>>> codext.decode("164150151163040151163040141040164145163164", "octals")
'this is a test'
>>> codext.encode("this is a test", "octal-spaced")
'164 150 151 163 40 151 163 40 141 40 164 145 163 164'
>>> codext.decode("164 150 151 163 40 151 163 40 141 40 164 145 163 164", "octals-spaced")
'this is a test'

Ordinal

This simple codec converts characters into their ordinals.

ordinal text <-> ordinal digits ordinals groups of 3-chars ordinal values when encoded
ordinal-spaced text <-> spaced ordinal digits ordinals-spaced whitespace-separated suite of variable-length groups of ordinal digits when encoded

'116104105115032105115032097032116101115116'

'116 104 105 115 32 105 115 32 97 32 116 101 115 116'
