    crypto-hash Build Status

    Tiny hashing module that uses the native crypto API in Node.js and the browser

    Useful when you want the same hashing API in all environments. My cat calls it isomorphic.

    In Node.js it uses require('crypto'), while in the browser it uses window.crypto.

    The browser version is only ~300 bytes minified & gzipped.

    Install

    $ npm install crypto-hash
    

    Usage

    const {sha256} = require('crypto-hash');
     
    (async () => {
        console.log(await sha256('🦄'));
        //=> '5df82936cbf0864be4b7ba801bee392457fde9e4'
    })();

    API

    sha1(input, options?)

    sha256(input, options?)

    sha384(input, options?)

    sha512(input, options?)

    Returns a Promise<string> with a hex-encoded hash.

    In Node.js 12 or later, the operation is executed using worker_threads. A thread is lazily spawned on the first operation and lives until the end of the program execution. It's unrefed, so it won't keep the process alive.

    SHA-1 is insecure and should not be used for anything sensitive.

    input

    Type: string ArrayBuffer ArrayBufferView

    options

    Type: object

    outputFormat

    Type: string
    Values: 'hex' | 'buffer'
    Default: 'hex'

    Setting this to buffer makes it return an ArrayBuffer instead of a string.
