    node-base58 Build Status

    A Base58 encoding and decoding library for Node.js.

    What?

    Base58 allows you to represent a numeric value with fewer characters, useful for short URLs among other things. Flickr is one the biggest sites that makes use of it for short photo URLs.

    For example 6857269519 becomes brXijP when Base58 encoded, and hence the Flickr short URL is: http://flic.kr/p/brXijP

    Installation

    npm install base58
    

    Usage

    const Base58 = require('base58');
    Base58.int_to_base58(6857269519); // 'brXijP'
    Base58.base58_to_int('brXijP');   // 6857269519
