I am new to python and I'm quite struggling to convert and array of byte to base64 string and/or ASCII.
Tried googling stuff but can't seem to find a solution.
I can do this easily in C#, but can't seem to do this in Python 2.x/3.x
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
The simplest approach would be: Array to json to base64:
import json import base64 data = [0, 1, 0, 0, 83, 116, -10] dataStr = json.dumps(data) base64EncodedStr = base64.b64encode(dataStr) print(base64EncodedStr) print('decoded', base64.b64decode(base64EncodedStr))
>>> WzAsIDEsIDAsIDAsIDgzLCAxMTYsIC0xMF0= >>> ('decoded', '[0, 1, 0, 0, 83, 116, -10]') # json.loads here !
... another option could be using bitarray module.
