Base64

Build Status Hackage

Base64 encoding and decodings.

For the companion optics and pattern synonyms, see base64-lens.

Summary

The following types are supported for both std, padded url-safe, and unpadded url-safe alphabets:

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

Additionally this library has

  • Better performance than base64-bytestring for encode and decode.
  • Optics for handling more complex structures with Base64 representations via the base64-lens package
  • Checks for both validity and correctness of Base64 and Base64url encodings

There are no dependencies aside from those bundled with GHC, and the ultra-minimal ghc-byteorder.
