xxh 0.1.1

Python bindings for xxhash non-cryptographic hash algorithm

Package Description

This package provides a Python interface to the xxHash fast non-cryptographic hash algorithm. Inspired by existing Python wrappers for xxHash, this package exposes both the 32 and 64-bit versions of the algorithm and leverages Cython to provide better support for incremental updating of a hash using data encapsulated in a range of Python container classes. The package is compatible with Python 2.7 and later.

Quick Start

Make sure you have pip and Cython installed; ; once you do, install the package as follows:

pip install xxh
