Subpackage Descriptions
single # python-magic [PyPI version] [Build Status] [![Join the chat at]]( python-magic is a Python interface to the libmagic file type identification library. libmagic identifies file types by checking their headers according to a predefined list of file types. This functionality is exposed to the command line by the Unix command `file`. ## Usage ```python >>> import magic >>> magic.from_file("testdata/test.pdf") 'PDF document, version 1.2' # recommend using at least the first 2048 bytes, as less can produce incorrect identification >>> magic.from_buffer(open("testdata/test.pdf", "rb").read(2048)) 'PDF document, version 1.2' >>> magic.from_file("testdata/test.pdf", mime=True) 'application/pdf' ``` There is also a `Magic` class that provides more direct control, including overriding the magic database file and turning on character encoding detection. This is not recommended for general use. In particular, it's not safe for sharing across multiple threads and will fail throw if this is attempted. ```python >>> f = magic.Magic(uncompress=True) >>> f.from_file('testdata/test.gz') 'ASCII text (gzip compressed data, was "test", last modified: Sat Jun 28 21:32:52 2008, from Unix)' ``` You can also combine the flag options: ```python >>> f = magic.Magic(mime=True, uncompress=True) >>> f.from_file('testdata/test.gz') 'text/plain' ``` ## Installation The current stable version of python-magic is available on PyPI and can be installed by running `pip install python-magic`. Other sources: - PyPI: - GitHub: This module is a simple wrapper around the libmagic C library, and that must be installed as well: ### Debian/Ubuntu ``` sudo apt-get install libmagic1 ``` ### Windows You'll need DLLs for libmagic. @julian-r maintains a pypi package with the DLLs, you can fetch it with: ``` pip install python-magic-bin ``` ### OSX - When using Homebrew: `brew install libmagic` - When using macports: `port install file` ### Troubleshooting - 'MagicException: could not find any magic files!': some installations of libmagic do not correctly point to their magic database file. Try specifying the path to the file explicitly in the constructor: `magic.Magic(magic_file="path_to_magic_file")`. - 'WindowsError: [Error 193] %1 is not a valid Win32 application': Attempting to run the 32-bit libmagic DLL in a 64-bit build of python will fail with this error. Here are 64-bit builds of libmagic for windows: Newer version can be found here: - 'WindowsError: exception: access violation writing 0x00000000 ' This may indicate you are mixing Windows Python and Cygwin Python. Make sure your libmagic and python builds are consistent. ## Bug Reports python-magic is a thin layer over the libmagic C library.
