Package uniuri generates random strings good for use in URIs to identify unique objects.
s := uniuri.New() // s is now "apHCJBl7L1OmC57n"
A standard string created by New() is 16 bytes in length and consists of Latin upper and lowercase letters, and numbers (from the set of 62 allowed characters), which means that it has ~95 bits of entropy. To get more entropy, you can use NewLen(UUIDLen), which returns 20-byte string, giving ~119 bits of entropy, or any other desired length.
Functions read from crypto/rand random source, and panic if they fail to read from it.
const ( // StdLen is a standard length of uniuri string to achive ~95 bits of entropy. StdLen = 16 // UUIDLen is a length of uniuri string to achive ~119 bits of entropy, closest // to what can be losslessly converted to UUIDv4 (122 bits). UUIDLen = 20 )
var StdChars = byte("ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789")
StdChars is a set of standard characters allowed in uniuri string.
func New() string
New returns a new random string of the standard length, consisting of standard characters.
func NewLen(length int) string
NewLen returns a new random string of the provided length, consisting of standard characters.
func NewLenChars(length int, chars byte) string
NewLenChars returns a new random string of the provided length, consisting of the provided byte slice of allowed characters (maximum 256).
