    NPM Version NPM Downloads Node.js Version Build Status Test Coverage

    Generate strong pseudo-random bytes.

    This module is a simple wrapper around the Node.js core crypto.randomBytes API, with the following additions:

    • A Promise interface for environments with promises.
    • For Node.js versions that do not wait for the PRNG to be seeded, this module will wait a bit.

    Installation

    $ npm install random-bytes

    API

    var randomBytes = require('random-bytes')

    randomBytes(size, callback)

    Generates strong pseudo-random bytes. The size argument is a number indicating the number of bytes to generate.

    randomBytes(12, function (error, bytes) {
      if (error) throw error
      // do something with the bytes
    })

    randomBytes(size)

    Generates strong pseudo-random bytes and return a Promise. The size argument is a number indicating the number of bytes to generate.

    Note: To use promises in Node.js prior to 0.12, promises must be "polyfilled" using global.Promise = require('bluebird').

    randomBytes(18).then(function (string) {
      // do something with the string
    })

    randomBytes.sync(size)

    A synchronous version of above.

    var bytes = randomBytes.sync(18)
