        Pyrana is a pure-python package which provides easy, pythonic and
powerful handling of multimedia files.

-  easy: pyrana does not submerge you with tons of options and details,
   but is filled with sane defaults. pyrana aims to be multimedia
   processing what
   `requests <>`_ is for http.

-  pythonic: pyrana wants to play nice and work well with the other
   well-established relevant python packages:
   `Pillow <>`_,
   `pygame <>`_,
   `PySDL2 <>`_.
   `numpy <>`_ compatibility is coming soon.

-  powerful: pyrana provides an independent API, but is built on the
   great foundations provided by the `powerful FFMpeg
   libraries <>`_.

pyrana is a modern, pure python package which is developed for python 3
(but compatible with python 2.7!) which takes great
advantage of `CFFI <>`_, so
the compatibility with `pypy <>`_ is just one step away.

pyrana offers a minimum 100% unit-test and documentation coverage, and
put great emphasis on small, yet complete and workable examples. Last
but not least, pyrana is released under the very liberal ZLIB license.
