object-hash

1.3.1 • Public • Published

object-hash

Generate hashes from objects and values in node and the browser. Uses node.js crypto module for hashing. Supports SHA1 and many others (depending on the platform) as well as custom streams (e.g. CRC32).

NPM

Travis CI Coverage Status

  • Hash values of any type.
  • Supports a keys only option for grouping similar objects with different values.
var hash = require('object-hash');
 
hash({foo: 'bar'}) // => '67b69634f9880a282c14a0f0cb7ba20cf5d677e9'
hash([1, 2, 2.718, 3.14159]) // => '136b9b88375971dff9f1af09d7356e3e04281951'

Versioning Disclaimer

Starting with version 1.1.8 (released April 2017), new versions will consider the exact returned hash part of the API contract, i.e. changes that will affect hash values will be considered semver-major. Previous versions may violate that expectation.

For more information, see this discussion.

hash(value, options);

Generate a hash from any object or type. Defaults to sha1 with hex encoding.

  • algorithm hash algo to be used: 'sha1', 'md5'. default: sha1
  • excludeValues {true|false} hash object keys, values ignored. default: false
  • encoding hash encoding, supports 'buffer', 'hex', 'binary', 'base64'. default: hex
  • ignoreUnknown {true|*false} ignore unknown object types. default: false
  • replacer optional function that replaces values before hashing. default: accept all values
  • respectFunctionProperties {true|false} Whether properties on functions are considered when hashing. default: true
  • respectFunctionNames {true|false} consider name property of functions for hashing. default: true
  • respectType {true|false} Whether special type attributes (.prototype, .__proto__, .constructor) are hashed. default: true
  • unorderedArrays {true|false} Sort all arrays using before hashing. Note that this affects all collections, i.e. including typed arrays, Sets, Maps, etc. default: false
  • unorderedSets {true|false} Sort Set and Map instances before hashing, i.e. make hash(new Set([1, 2])) == hash(new Set([2, 1])) return true. default: true
  • unorderedObjects {true|false} Sort objects before hashing, i.e. make hash({ x: 1, y: 2 }) === hash({ y: 2, x: 1 }). default: true
  • excludeKeys optional function for exclude specific key(s) from hashing, if returns true then exclude from hash. default: include all keys

hash.sha1(value);

Hash using the sha1 algorithm.

Sugar method, equivalent to hash(value, {algorithm: 'sha1'})

hash.keys(value);

Hash object keys using the sha1 algorithm, values ignored.

Sugar method, equivalent to hash(value, {excludeValues: true})

hash.MD5(value);

Hash using the md5 algorithm.

Sugar method, equivalent to hash(value, {algorithm: 'md5'})

hash.keysMD5(value);

Hash object keys using the md5 algorithm, values ignored.

Sugar method, equivalent to hash(value, {algorithm: 'md5', excludeValues: true})

hash.writeToStream(value, [options,] stream):

Write the information that would otherwise have been hashed to a stream, e.g.:

hash.writeToStream({foo: 'bar', a: 42}, {respectType: false}, process.stdout)
// => e.g. 'object:a:number:42foo:string:bar'

Installation

node:

npm install object-hash

browser: /dist/object_hash.js

<script src="object_hash.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script>
  var hash = objectHash.sha1({foo:'bar'}); 
  
  console.log(hash); // e003c89cdf35cdf46d8239b4692436364b7259f9
</script>

Legacy Browser Support

IE <= 8 and Opera <= 11 support dropped in version 0.3.0. If you require legacy browser support you must either use an ES5 shim or use version 0.2.5 of this module.

Development

git clone https://github.com/puleos/object-hash

Node Docker Wrapper

If you want to stand this up in a docker container, you should take at look at the node-object-hash project.

gulp tasks

  • gulp watch (default) watch files, test and lint on change/add
  • gulp test unit tests
  • gulp karma browser unit tests
  • gulp lint jshint
  • gulp dist create browser version in /dist
