hasha




Hashing made simple. Get the hash of a buffer/string/stream/file.

Convenience wrapper around the core crypto Hash class with simpler API and better defaults.

Install

npm install hasha

Usage

import {hash} from 'hasha';

await hash('unicorn');
//=> 'e233b19aabc7d5e53826fb734d1222f1f0444c3a3fc67ff4af370a66e7cadd2cb24009f1bc86f0bed12ca5fcb226145ad10fc5f650f6ef0959f8aadc5a594b27'

API

See the Node.js crypto docs for more about hashing.

hash(input, options?)

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.

Returns a hash asynchronously.

hashSync(input, options?)

Returns a hash.

input

Type: Uint8Array | string | Array<Uint8Array | string> | NodeJS.ReadableStream (NodeJS.ReadableStream is not available in hashSync)

The value to hash.

While strings are supported you should prefer buffers as they're faster to hash. Although if you already have a string you should not convert it to a buffer.

Pass an array instead of concatenating strings and/or buffers. The output is the same, but arrays do not incur the overhead of concatenation.

options

Type: object

encoding

Type: string
Default: 'hex'
Values: 'hex' | 'base64' | 'buffer' | 'latin1'

The encoding of the returned hash.

algorithm

Type: string
Default: 'sha512'
Values: 'md5' | 'sha1' | 'sha256' | 'sha512' (Platform dependent)

The md5 algorithm is good for file revving, but you should never use md5 or sha1 for anything sensitive. They're insecure.

hashFile(filePath, options?)

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.

Returns a Promise for the calculated file hash.

import {hashFile} from 'hasha';

// Get the MD5 hash of an image
await hashFile('unicorn.png', {algorithm: 'md5'});
//=> '1abcb33beeb811dca15f0ac3e47b88d9'

hashFileSync(filePath, options?)

Returns the calculated file hash.

import {hashFileSync} from 'hasha';

// Get the MD5 hash of an image
hashFileSync('unicorn.png', {algorithm: 'md5'});
//=> '1abcb33beeb811dca15f0ac3e47b88d9'

hashingStream(options?)

Returns a hash transform stream.

import {hashingStream} from 'hasha';

// Hash the process input and output the hash sum
process.stdin.pipe(hashingStream()).pipe(process.stdout);
