vinlib is a Vehicle Identification Number Package that allows you to
verify and decode parts of the vin number.

Currently it can:
1) vinlib.check_vin will return whether the entered vin number is
authentic/correct.
2) decode function coming soon. If anybody has a list of vin to make
or vin to model references please let me know.

Install vinlib
PYPI

You can install vinlib from PyPi:

easy_install vinlib

Done.

Using vinlib

In python code you can:

import vinlib
myvinnumber='1hasomenumberhere'
print vinlib.check_vin(myvinnumber)

This will return true or false depending if the vin number is correct or not.

Enjoy,
Lucas
