Welcome to ipuz’s documentation!

Python library for reading and writing ipuz puzzle files. The specification for the ipuz file format can be found at: http://www.ipuz.org/. The ipuz file format supports representing various types of puzzles, including crossword, sudoku and word search. This Python library provides validation and wrapping around the puzzle data.

As the puzzle is inherently JSON data it is the application’s responsibility to ensure that the JSON satisfies the constraints of the PuzzleKind prior to writing the puzzle. This library provides validation and additional functionality that you might want to use.

The library supports Python 2.7, Python 3.2, Python 3.3 and Python 3.4.
