Readme for base32-0.4

[back to package description]


Build Status Hackage

Padded and unpadded base32 and base32hex encoding and decoding for Text and ByteString values.

For the companion optics and pattern synonyms, see base32-lens.


The following types are supported for both padded and unpadded std and extended hex alphabets:

  • Data.ByteString
  • Data.ByteString.Lazy
  • Data.ByteString.Short
  • Data.Text
  • Data.Text.Lazy
  • Data.Text.Short

Additionally this library has

  • Better performance than memory for encode and decode 3-4x.
  • Optics for handling more complex structures with Base32 representations via the base32-lens package
  • Checks for both validity and correctness of Base32 and Base32hex encodings

There are no dependencies aside from those bundled with GHC, text-short.
