Zipcodes

Zipcodes is a simple library for querying U.S. zipcodes.

The Python sqlite3 module is not required in order to use this package.

>>> import zipcodes
>>> assert zipcodes.is_real('77429')
>>> assert len(zipcodes.similar_to('7742')) != 0
>>> exact_zip = zipcodes.matching('77429')[0]
>>> filtered_zips = zipcodes.filter_by(city="Cypress", state="TX") 
>>> assert exact_zip in filtered_zips
>>> pprint.pprint(exact_zip)

Downloads Supported Versions Contributors

Installation

Zipcodes is available on PyPI:

$ python -m pip install zipcodes

Zipcodes supports Python 2.6+ and Python 3.2+.

Compiling with PyInstaller

Add a data file to your PyInstaller bundle with the --add-data flag.

Linux and MacOS

--add-data "<path-to-package-install>/zipcodes/zips.json.bz2:zipcodes"

Windows

--add-data "<path-to-package-install>\zipcodes\zips.json.bz2;zipcodes"

Zipcode Data

The build script for the zipcode data outputs a JSON file containing all the zipcode data and zipped using bzip2. The data sources are stored under build/app/data.

Build the zipcode data for distribution:

$ build/app/__init__.py # outputs `zipcodes/zips.json.bz2`

Tests

The tests are defined in a declarative, table-based format that generates test cases.

Run the tests directly:

$ python tests/__init__.py

>>> import zipcodes

>>> # Simple zip-code matching.
