You can use this package as node Hash.

console.log(createKeccakHash('keccak256').digest().toString('hex'))
// => c5d2460186f7233c927e7db2dcc703c0e500b653ca82273b7bfad8045d85a470

console.log(createKeccakHash('keccak256').update('Hello world!').digest('hex'))

const hash1 = createKeccakHash('keccak256').update('Hello')
const hash2 = hash1._clone()
console.log(hash1.digest('hex'))
