    Notice

    This module is moving to async/await starting from 0.7.0. The last minor version to support callbacks is 0.6.0, any backports will merged to the branch callbacks and released under >0.6.0 <0.7.0.

    Wait, why, how is this different from Node crypto?

    This module just makes working with multihashes a bit nicer. js-multihash is only for encoding/decoding multihashes, and does not depend on other libs. This module will depend on various implementations for each hash. It currently uses crypto and sha3 in Node.js. In the browser webcrypto and browserify-sha3 are used.

    Install

    In Node.js through npm

    $ npm install --save multihashing-async
    const multihashing = require('multihashing-async')

    Use in a browser with browserify, webpack or any other bundler

    The code published to npm that gets loaded on require is in fact a ES5 transpiled version with the right shims added. This means that you can require it and use with your favourite bundler without having to adjust asset management process.

    const multihashing = require('multihashing-async')

    Use in a browser Using a script tag

    Loading this module through a script tag will make the multihashing obj available in the global namespace.

    <script src="https://unpkg.com/multihashing-async/dist/index.min.js"></script>
    <!-- OR -->
    <script src="https://unpkg.com/multihashing-async/dist/index.js"></script>

    Usage

    const multihashing = require('multihashing-async')
    const bytes = new TextEncoder().encode('beep boop')
    
    const mh = await multihashing(bytes, 'sha1')
    
    // Use `.digest(...)` if you want only the hash digest (drops the prefix indicating the hash type).
    const digest = await multihashing.digest(bytes, 'sha1')
    
    // Use `.createHash(...)` for the raw hash functions
    const hash = multihashing.createHash('sha1')
    const digest = await hash(bytes)
