Conversion: trytes and trits
# The snippet is a part of the IOTA Developer Essentials project. You can reach it at
# Complete description and story behind the snippet is available at:
# Requirement: PyOTA library (!pip install pyota)
import iota #importing PyOTA library to interact with
from pprint import pprint
TrytesAsBytes = b"YZJEATEQ9JKLZ" # some data encoded in Trytes (byte string in Python, not unicode string)
Trytes = iota.TryteString(TrytesAsBytes) # initializing TryteString type from the PyOTA library - great help while dealing with Trytes/Trits, etc.
pprint(Trytes) # getting the same data however using TryteString type of PyOTA library
pprint("Number of Trytes: %s" % len(TrytesAsBytes))
Trits = Trytes.as_trits() # converting Trytes to Trits
pprint("Number of trits: %s" % len(Trits)) # Number of trits is three times the number of trytes obviously
