Python API for HotBits random data generator.

Description

This project is random data generator. It uses is HotBits API web service for radioactively-generated random data.

The web service generates random data. Without API token, only pseudorandom data will be returned. For radioactively-generated random data, you would need to request free API key.

The project is not part of the HotBits. It is just API client for it, made by community. For any information about HotBits, you should use the official website.

Usage

First, you need to import the generator class:

from hotbits import RandomDataGenerator

Then you need to init the generator client, with default service URL:

generator = RandomDataGenerator()

Custom URL can be changed with parameters:

generator = RandomDataGenerator(custom_url='https://example.com')

You can then generate data with specific length and API key:

result = generator.generate(
    length='256',
    apikey='exampleAPIkey'
)

Length of 128 bytes is used by default. If no API key is specified, pseudorandom data will be returned.

Random data are returned as list:

print(result[0]) # First byte
print(result[1]) # Second byte
print(result[3]) # Third byte

You can also look to example file for more examples.
