NPM version

crypto-md5

There are several md5 modules on npm, but none of them use the crypto node module. Researching the performance impact of one vs another is tedious, and I just wanted to use the core one without having to duplicate code all the time so I just implemented this function as a separate module.

Usage

npm install --save crypto-md5

API

md5(data, digest)

Returns a base64 md5 hash of the buffer or string. Can return an hex digest.

  • data: buffer or string to hash
  • digest: optional digest type. Can be base64 (default) or hex
var md5 = require('md5');
 
md5('foobar');
 
// OFj2IjCsPJFfMAxmQxLGPw==
 
md5('foobar', 'hex');
