What would you like to do?
use hex instead of ascii when display bytes in ipython
to load allhex any where
copy and to folder "~/.local/lib/python3.7/site-packages/allhex/"
(3.7 is your python version)
from .allhex import *
use "%load_ext allhex" to load it
use "%unload_ext allhex" to unload it
to load it automatically, add
`get_ipython().run_line_magic('load_ext', 'allhex')`
to your ~/.ipython/profile_default/startup/
def load_ipython_extension(ipython):
formatter = ipython.display_formatter.formatters['text/plain']
def _repr(obj, p, cycle):
s = "b'" + (''.join(f'\\x{c:02x}' for c in obj)) + "'"
formatter.for_type(bytes, _repr)
def unload_ipython_extension(ipython):
formatter = ipython.display_formatter.formatters['text/plain']
formatter.for_type(bytes, lambda obj, p, cycle: p.text(str(obj)))
