useragent 0.1.1


useragent is a Python library that parses HTTP User-agent strings
and tries to give you as much data as possible in a normalized form.

It uses the data provided by the ua-parser project (originally collected by
Steve Souders). It aims to be more pythonic than the python wrapper found
in the original ua-parser project.


#!/usr/bin/env python

import useragent
ua = useragent.detect("Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; nl; rv: Gecko/2008070206 Firefox/3.0.1")

Which would print ``ua``, a dict-like object with the following structure::
'device': {
'family': None,
'major_version': None,
'minor_version': None,
'patch_version': None
'os': {
'family': 'Mac OS X',
'major_version': '10',
'minor_version': '5',
'patch_version': None
'browser': {
'family': 'Firefox',
'major_version': '3',
'minor_version': '0',
'patch_version': '1'

The ``ua`` object actually has each of those keys exposed as attributes on itself, so you may find it more comfortable to navigate like so::
