multibase implementation in Rust.

Table of Contents


First add this to your Cargo.toml

multibase = "0.9"

For no_std

multibase = { version ="0.9", default-features = false }

note: This crate relies on the currently unstable host_dep feature to compile proc macros with the proper dependencies, thus requiring nightly rustc to use.

Then run cargo build.


use multibase::Base;

let base64 = multibase::encode(Base::Base64, b"hello world");
let (base, data) = multibase::decode(base64);

Note: base32 and base64 are orders of magnitude faster due to byte alignment. Don't be surprised if using a different base turns into a performance bottleneck. You were warned!
