In wheel I use urlsafe_b64encode_nopad() which omits the trailing = characters, but although very easy to implement isn't included in the stdlib. In this spec I use the stdlib urlsafe_b64encode().
Why urlsafe_b64encode, rather than just hexdigest which is what is used for md5?
On the other hand, why encode it at all? CSV supports shoving the raw bytes in there, no problem. ;-)
