    node-cryptonight-old-hardware

    node bindings for cryptonight hashing on old hardware that does not support AES-NI extensions

    Cryptonight hashing functions for node.js.

    Recommended for usage on old hardware, prefer using node-cryptonight on modern hardware and production.

    Supports cryptonight variant: 0, 1, 2 and 4.

    Installation

    npm install --save node-cryptonight-old-hardware

    Testing

    Code is linted with standard and tested with Jest. Run npm test to lint and run tests.

    Usage Examples

    Synchronous Hashing
    const cryptonight = require('node-cryptonight-old-hardware').hash
    const hash = cryptonight(Buffer.from('This is a test'))
    console.log(hash) // <Buffer a0 84 f0 1d 14 37 ..>
    Synchronous Hashing with variant 1
    const cryptonight = require('node-cryptonight-old-hardware').hash
    const hash = cryptonight(Buffer.from('This is a test'), 1)
    console.log(hash) // <Buffer a0 84 f0 1d 14 37 ..>
    Synchronous Hashing with variant 4 and height 123
    const cryptonight = require('node-cryptonight-old-hardware').hash
    const hash = cryptonight(Buffer.from('This is a test'), 4, 123)
    console.log(hash) // <Buffer a0 84 f0 1d 14 37 ..>
    Asynchronous Hashing
    const cryptonight = require('node-cryptonight-old-hardware').asyncHash
    cryptonight(Buffer.from('This is a test'), hash => {
      console.log(hash) // <Buffer a0 84 f0 1d 14 37 ..>
    })
    Asynchronous Hashing with variant 1
    const cryptonight = require('node-cryptonight-old-hardware').asyncHash
    cryptonight(Buffer.from('This is a test'), 1, hash => {
      console.log(hash) // <Buffer a0 84 f0 1d 14 37 ..>
    })
    Asynchronous Hashing with variant 4 and height 123
    const cryptonight = require('node-cryptonight-old-hardware').asyncHash
    cryptonight(Buffer.from('This is a test'), 4, 123, hash => {
      console.log(hash) // <Buffer a0 84 f0 1d 14 37 ..>
    })
    Promise Wrapper Example
    function cryptonight(data) {
      return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
        require('node-cryptonight').asyncHash(data, hash => {
          resolve(hash)
        })
      })
    }
     
    cryptonight(Buffer.from('This is a test'))
      .then(console.log) // <Buffer a0 84 f0 1d 14 37 ..>
