Minimal package for ed25519 signatures

Build Status MIT Haskell

This package implements minimal bindings to the ed25519 signature scheme. It's designed to be small, with no dependencies, and fast. It also comes with extensive guidelines and detailed documentation. It should be relatively easy to both depend on directly with Cabal or even copy into any projects that need it directly.

For full details (including notes on the underlying implementation), check out the docs.


It's just a cabal install away on Hackage:

$ cabal install ed25519
