id-generator-ts

Description:

useUUID is a JavaScript/TypeScript utility function that generates universally unique identifiers (UUIDs). UUIDs are 128-bit identifiers that are guaranteed to be unique.

This useUUID function is designed to provide a UUID regardless of the user's environment's cryptographic capabilities. When possible, it uses a more secure method, but it also provides a fallback for environments where cryptographic randomness is not available.

Browser with Crypto API

When running in a modern browser that supports the crypto API, useUUID will utilize the browser's cryptographically secure random number generator to generate UUIDs.

Fallback for Non-Browser Environments

In environments where the crypto API is not available (e.g., Node.js or older browsers), useUUID will use a fallback method that relies on pseudo-random numbers generated by JavaScript's Math.random() function. While this method is not as secure as the crypto API, it provides a reasonable alternative for generating UUIDs.

Features:

  • Cross-browser compatibility: Generates UUIDs reliably across various web browsers.
  • Secure UUID generation: Utilizes browser-native crypto when available, ensuring high-quality randomness.
  • Fallback for unsupported browsers: Provides a secure fallback method for browsers lacking crypto support.
  • Easy integration: Simply import and use the hook in your React components to access UUIDs.
