Hashids is small library to generate YouTube-like ids from numbers. Use Hashids when you do not want to expose your database ids to the user.
A Dart class to generate YouTube-like hashes from one or many numbers.
What is it? #
Hashids (Hash ID's) creates short, unique, decryptable hashes from unsigned (long) integers.
This algorithm tries to satisfy the following requirements:
- Hashes must be unique and decryptable.
- They should be able to contain more than one integer (so you can use them in complex or clustered systems).
- You should be able to specify minimum hash length.
- Hashes should not contain basic English curse words (since they are meant to appear in public places - like the URL).
Instead of showing items as
3, you could show them as
You don't have to store these hashes in the database, but can encrypt + decrypt on the fly.
All (long) integers need to be greater than or equal to zero.

final hashids = HashIds(); final fromNumber = hashids.encode(42); final fromList = hashids.encode([1,2,3]); final fromString = hashids.encode('42');
final hashids = HashIds(); final number = hashids.decode(fromNumber); //  final list = hashids.decode(fromList); // [1,2,3] final string = hashids.decode(fromString); //
