This gives the list of digits rather than a string:

sage: a = 14
sage: a.digits(2)
[0, 1, 1, 1]

Note that these are listed starting with the units digit.

So in either case you have to do something... maybe b = a.digits(2); b.reverse() like this?

Interestingly, this hasn't been properly asked sometimes. Here is an example:

sage: a = 15
sage: a.binary()
