    md5-hex

    Create a MD5 hash with hex encoding

    Please don't use MD5 hashes for anything sensitive!

    Works in the browser too, when used with a bundler like Webpack, Rollup, Browserify.

    Checkout hasha if you need something more flexible.

    Install

    $ npm install md5-hex
    

    Usage

    import fs from 'node:fs';
    import md5Hex from 'md5-hex';
    
    const buffer = fs.readFileSync('unicorn.png');
    
    md5Hex(buffer);
    //=> '1abcb33beeb811dca15f0ac3e47b88d9'

    API

    md5Hex(data)

    data

    Type: Buffer | string | Array<Buffer | string>

    Prefer buffers as they're faster to hash, but strings can be useful for small things.

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