Zenit Polar

A basic way for kids to write encrypted letters

Zenit Polar is a very basic way for kids to write encrypted letters (their secrecies) so that adults cannot understand.

In this rudimentary technique of encoding we exchange the letters for their correspondent just below it. It works like a dictionary.

polarzenitPOLARZENIT

Next, we can see the Python code:

#!/usr/bin/python
# --*-- coding: utf8 --*--
# file: zenit-polar.py
import string
# Zenit-Polar dictionary variables
a = 'zenitpolarZENITPOLAR'
b = 'polarzenitPOLARZENIT'
# Zenit-Polar translate table
translateTable = string.maketrans(a,b)
# our message to encode
message = 'I like to hang out with my friends'
# our encoded/decoded message
encodedDecodedMessage = string.translate(message,translateTable)
# let's look our encoded/decoded message
print(encodedDecodedMessage)

You may see this code working in Zenit Polar App on Google App Engine. For more information please see Zenit-Polar article on Wikipedia.

That’s all folks! See ya soon! :D :D
