NAME

UUID.js - RFC-compliant UUID Generator for JavaScript

SYNOPSIS

<!-- HTML5 -->
<script src="src/uuid.js"></script>
<script> var uuid = UUID.generate(); </script> 
// Node.js
let UUID = require("uuidjs");
let uuid = UUID.generate();
// TypeScript
import UUID from 'uuidjs';
let str: string = UUID.generate();
let obj: UUID = UUID.genV4();
# Command-line 
npx uuidjs

DESCRIPTION

UUID.js is a JavaScript/ECMAScript library to generate RFC 4122 compliant Universally Unique IDentifiers (UUIDs). This library supports both version 4 UUIDs (UUIDs from random numbers) and version 1 UUIDs (time-based UUIDs), and provides an object-oriented interface to print a generated or parsed UUID in a variety of forms.

FEATURES

  • Generates version 4 UUIDs (UUIDs from random numbers) and version 1 UUIDs (time-based UUIDs)
  • Provides an object-oriented interface to print various string representations of a generated or parsed UUID
  • Utilizes a cryptographically secure pseudo-random number generator if available, whereas falling back to Math.random() otherwise
  • Appends extra random bits to compensate for the lower timestamp resolution of JavaScript than that required for version 1 UUIDs
  • Comes with a lot of test cases including format checks and statistical tests to maintain a high-quality code base
  • Supports old browsers as well as modern browser and server environments, as kept compatible with ECMAScript 3rd edition

INSTALL

Download src/uuid.js or call npm install uuidjs.

Then, load src/uuid.js.

<script src="src/uuid.js"></script>

Or, import uuidjs.

const UUID = require("uuidjs");

USAGE EXAMPLES

UUID.generate() returns a version 4 UUID as a hexadecimal string.

// Create a version 4 UUID as a hexadecimal string
console.log(UUID.generate());   // fa84cf42-ffdf-4975-b42b-31ab5fb983eb

UUID.genV4(), UUID.genV1(), and UUID.parse() return a UUID object that has various fields and methods.

// Create a version 4 (random number-based) UUID object
var objV4 = UUID.genV4();
 
// Create a version 1 (time-based) UUID object
var objV1 = UUID.genV1();
 
// Create a UUID object from a hexadecimal string
var uuid = UUID.parse("a0e0f130-8c21-11df-92d9-95795a3bcd40");
 
// Get string representations of a UUID object
console.log(uuid.toString());   // "a0e0f130-8c21-11df-92d9-95795a3bcd40"
console.log(uuid.hexString);    // "a0e0f130-8c21-11df-92d9-95795a3bcd40"
console.log(uuid.hexNoDelim);   // "a0e0f1308c2111df92d995795a3bcd40"
console.log(uuid.bitString);    // "101000001110000 ... 1100110101000000"
console.log(uuid.urn);          // "urn:uuid:a0e0f130-8c21-11df-92d9-95795a3bcd40"
 
// Compare UUID objects
console.log(objV4.equals(objV1));   // false
 
// Get UUID version numbers
console.log(objV4.version); // 4
console.log(objV1.version); // 1
 
// Get internal field values in 3 different forms via 2 different accessors
console.log(uuid.intFields.timeLow);                // 2699096368
console.log(uuid.bitFields.timeMid);                // "1000110000100001"
console.log(uuid.hexFields.timeHiAndVersion);       // "11df"
console.log(uuid.intFields.clockSeqHiAndReserved);  // 146
console.log(uuid.bitFields.clockSeqLow);            // "11011001"
console.log(uuid.hexFields.node);                   // "95795a3bcd40"
 
console.log(uuid.intFields[0]);                     // 2699096368
console.log(uuid.bitFields[1]);                     // "1000110000100001"
console.log(uuid.hexFields[2]);                     // "11df"
console.log(uuid.intFields[3]);                     // 146
console.log(uuid.bitFields[4]);                     // "11011001"
console.log(uuid.hexFields[5]);                     // "95795a3bcd40"

UUID.js supports the so-called noConflict mode to work around namespace conflicts.

// Avoid namespace conflicts with other libraries
var arbitraryVarName = UUID;
UUID = UUID.overwrittenUUID;                // Restore the original value
console.log(arbitraryVarName.generate());   // "cb9a0283-a44c-4e7a-a5b0-9cd2876e952b"
