    Fast, beautiful, unique random Strings for node

    • Fast. Integers only, no floating point operations. <3 your CPU!
    • Beautiful. Use your own character set or go with one of the ready-made ones.
    • Unique. Uses the pseudo random number generator from node's crypt package.

    Usage

    Easy:

    npm install random-strings
    
    var rs = require('random-strings');
     
    rs.random(20,'ABCD0987');   // ABCD0987

    Done!

    // Or use one of these:
    rs.human(20);         // ABCDEFGHJKLMNPQRSTUVWXYZ23456789
    rs.numeric(20);       // 0123456789
    rs.hex(20);           // 0123456789ABCDEF
    rs.base64(20);        // ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789-_
    rs.newBase64(20);     // 0123456789ABCDEFGHJKLMNPQRSTUVWXYZ_abcdefghijkmnopqrstuvwxyz-+*$
    rs.alphaUpper(20);    // ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    rs.alphaLower(20);    // abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz
    rs.alphaNumUpper(20); // ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789
    rs.alphaNumLower(20); // abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789
    rs.alphaNumMixed(20); // abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ0123456789
    
    
    

    Functions

    random(length[, alphabet])

    Generate a String of length random characters from alphabet.

    Parameters

    length - Integer. The number of characters you want your String to be.

    alphabet optional. String. The alphabet to use. Your resulting string will contain only characters from this alphabet. Default: newBase64 character set (see below)

    Returns

    A String of length random characters from alphabet.

    Tips

    • Humans & Manual Processing. Uppercase and Numerics only. Leave out 1lO0. Use randomStrings.human(length)
    • Old Skool-ish eCommerce. Be conservative about the length and use an uppercase (alpha)numeric character set. Use randomStrings.alphaNumUpper(16) or even randomStrings.numeric(16)
    • Modern eCommerce (Bitcoin). Have fun! 64 characters and a full base64 character set = 64^64 options. Use randomStrings.base64(64)
    • IDs, Tokens Yeeeeh! 64+ characters and a full base64 character set. Perfect for randomString.base64(128)
