farmhash

3.0.0 • Public • Published

farmhash

Node.js implementation of Google's FarmHash family of very fast hash functions.

FarmHash is the successor to CityHash. Functions in the FarmHash family are not suitable for cryptography. A fast, cryptographically-secure alternative is HighwayHash.

As the V8 JavaScript engine only natively supports 32-bit unsigned integers, the 64-bit methods return strings instead of Numbers and the 128-bit methods are not implemented.

This module uses FarmHash v1.1.0 (2015-03-01). It has been tested with Node.js 10 and 12 on Linux, OS X and Windows.

Pre-compiled binaries are provided for CPUs with SSE4.2 intrinsics. Use the npm install --build-from-source flag to gain performance benefits on more modern CPUs such as those with AVX intrinsics.

Installation

npm install farmhash
yarn add farmhash

Usage

const farmhash = require('farmhash');
const hash = farmhash.hash32('test');
console.log(typeof hash); // 'number'
const hash = farmhash.hash64(new Buffer('test'));
console.log(typeof hash); // 'string'
const hash = farmhash.hash64WithSeed('test', 123);
console.log(typeof hash); // 'string'
const hash = farmhash.fingerprint32(new Buffer('test'));
console.log(typeof hash); // 'number'
const hash = farmhash.fingerprint64('test');
console.log(typeof hash); // 'string'

API

Hash

The hash methods are platform dependent. Different CPU architectures, for example 32-bit vs 64-bit, Intel vs ARM, SSE4.2 vs AVX might produce different results for a given input.

hash32(input)

  • input is the Buffer or String to hash.

Returns a Number containing the 32-bit unsigned integer hash value of input.

hash32WithSeed(input, seed)

  • input is the Buffer or String to hash.
  • seed is an integer Number to use as a seed.

Returns a Number containing the 32-bit unsigned integer hash value of input.

hash64(input)

  • input is the Buffer or String to hash.

Returns a String representing the 64-bit unsigned integer hash value of input.

hash64WithSeed(input, seed)

  • input is the Buffer or String to hash.
  • seed is an integer Number to use as a seed.

Returns a String representing the 64-bit unsigned integer hash value of input.

hash64WithSeeds(input, seed1, seed2)

  • input is the Buffer or String to hash.
  • seed1 and seed2 are integer Numbers to use as seeds.

Returns a String representing the 64-bit unsigned integer hash value of input.

Fingerprint

The fingerprint methods are platform independent, producing the same results for a given input on any machine.

fingerprint32(input)

  • input is the Buffer or String to fingerprint.

Returns a Number containing the 32-bit unsigned integer fingerprint value of input.

fingerprint64(input)

  • input is the Buffer or String to fingerprint.

Returns a String representing the 64-bit unsigned integer fingerprint value of input.
