Pure Go UUID implementation

This package provides immutable UUID structs and the functions NewV3, NewV4, NewV5 and Parse() for generating versions 3, 4 and 5 UUIDs as specified in RFC 4122.

Installation

Use the go tool:

$ go get github.com/nu7hatch/gouuid

Usage

The following standard UUIDs are for use with NewV3() or NewV5().

Functions

This section is empty.

Types

type UUID

type UUID [16]byte

A UUID representation compliant with specification in RFC 4122 document.

func NewV3

func NewV3(ns *UUID, name []byte) (u *UUID, err error)

Generate a UUID based on the MD5 hash of a namespace identifier and a name.

func NewV4

func NewV4() (u *UUID, err error)

Generate a random UUID.

func NewV5

func NewV5(ns *UUID, name []byte) (u *UUID, err error)

Generate a UUID based on the SHA-1 hash of a namespace identifier and a name.

func Parse

func Parse(b []byte) (u *UUID, err error)

Parse creates a UUID object from given bytes slice.

func ParseHex

func ParseHex(s string) (u *UUID, err error)

ParseHex creates a UUID object from given hex string representation. Function accepts UUID string in following formats:

uuid.ParseHex("6ba7b814-9dad-11d1-80b4-00c04fd430c8")
uuid.ParseHex("{6ba7b814-9dad-11d1-80b4-00c04fd430c8}")
uuid.ParseHex("urn:uuid:6ba7b814-9dad-11d1-80b4-00c04fd430c8")

func (*UUID) String

func (u *UUID) String() string

Returns unparsed version of the generated UUID sequence.

func (*UUID) Variant

func (u *UUID) Variant() byte

Variant returns the UUID Variant, which determines the internal layout of the UUID. This will be one of the constants: RESERVED_NCS, RFC_4122, RESERVED_MICROSOFT, RESERVED_FUTURE.

func (*UUID) Version

func (u *UUID) Version() uint

Version returns a version number of the algorithm used to generate the UUID sequence.
