This library is a quite old, and uses an older and non-authenticated cipher mode, CBC. There are better and more frequently maintained alternatives. Here are a couple that I would recommend:
- LibSodium is becoming a widely adopted library with a variety of languages supported including Ruby and JS. Example of a similar API in LibSodium.js - mdp/gibberish-libsodium

// GibberishAES.enc(string, password) // Defaults to 256 bit encryption enc = GibberishAES.enc("This sentence is super secret", "ultra-strong-password"); alert(enc); GibberishAES.dec(enc, "ultra-strong-password"); // Now change size to 128 bits GibberishAES.size(128); enc = GibberishAES.enc("This sentence is not so secret", "1234"); GibberishAES.dec(enc, "1234"); // And finally 192 bits GibberishAES.size(192); enc = GibberishAES.enc("I can't decide!!!", "whatever"); GibberishAES.dec(enc, "whatever");
GibberishAES.enc("Made with Gibberish\n", "password"); // Outputs: "U2FsdGVkX1+21O5RB08bavFTq7Yq/gChmXrO3f00tvJaT55A5pPvqw0zFVnHSW1o"
On the command line
echo "U2FsdGVkX1+21O5RB08bavFTq7Yq/gChmXrO3f00tvJaT55A5pPvqw0zFVnHSW1o" | openssl enc -d -aes-256-cbc -a -k password
The library is fully encapsulated, you should be able to drop it into nearly any website. The downside to this is that it grew with the addition of its own Base64 library and MD5 hashing algorithm.

The test script does require JQuery(included), but the basic GibberishAES does not.
It only supports CBC AES encryption mode, and it's built to be compatible with OpenSSL.
