Joseph K. Myers' high performance (in fact, the fastest) MD5 implementation for npm, Bower, Component, etc.
This MD5 implementation was written by Joseph K. Myers and is currently the fastest according to jsperf. I've wrapped it up as a universal module (UMD) for easy consumption with Bower, Component, npm, RequireJS (AMD), CommonJS, etc...
The module exports a single function that takes one parameter:
bower install md5-jkmyers
component install md5-jkmyers
Then in your
Please be aware that node already comes with MD5 built in - see here. Having said that,
md5-jkmyers might still be a good and fast alternative (please feel free to contribute perfomance testst):
npm install md5-jkmyers
Then in your code do
md5 = require('md5') md5('hello, world!')
