md5-hex Build Status

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

const fs = require('fs');
const md5Hex = require('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.
