How to get MD5 sum of a string using python?


You can do the following:

Python 2.x

import hashlibprint hashlib.md5("whatever your string is").hexdigest()

Python 3.x

import hashlibprint(hashlib.md5("whatever your string is".encode('utf-8')).hexdigest())

However in this case you're probably better off using this helpful Python module for interacting with the Flickr API:

... which will deal with the authentication for you.

Official documentation of hashlib


For Python 2.x, use python's hashlib

import hashlibm = hashlib.md5()m.update("000005fab4534d05api_key9a0554259914a86fb9e7eb014e4e5d52permswrite")print m.hexdigest()

Output: a02506b31c1cd46c2e0b6380fb94eb3d


You can use b character in front of a string literal:

import hashlibprint(hashlib.md5(b"Hello MD5").hexdigest())print(hashlib.md5("Hello MD5".encode('utf-8')).hexdigest())

Out:
