Password Hasher

This project is intended to ease the use of bcrypt package abstracting the developer from using arrays of bytes and all necessary stuff for hashing a string and making it as simple as just to call the need function and passing a string as argument

What you can do:

  • convert a plaintext string to hash
  • checks if a plaintext string is equal to a hash

How to use

hashing strings

import (
	"fmt"
	"github.com/Edmartt/go-password-hasher/hasher"

	)

func main(){

	myString := "12345"
	hashedString := hasher.ConvertToHash(myString)

	fmt.Println(hashedString)

}

We’ll see some output like this:

  • $2a$10$J65kHWsGVPLJq47D5aBJmeBpytRtXM5F6iN4ZId/Eum5IXw4cOMfi
Checking if a hash equals to a string we pass as argument:

import (
	"fmt"
	"github.com/Edmartt/go-password-hasher/hasher"

	)

func main(){

	myString := "12345"
	hashedString := hasher.ConvertToHash(myString)

	isTheSame := hasher.CheckHash(hashedString, "12345")

	fmt.Println(isTheSame)
}

Our output here would be:

  • true
