Convert between camel-cased & hyphenated strings (eg SomeResourceName <=> some-resource-name)
View hyphen-camel.js
/**
* Returns camel-cased equivalent of (lower-case) hyphenated string.

chrisveness / crypto-pbkdf2.js
Last active May 9, 2020
Uses the SubtleCrypto interface of the Web Cryptography API to hash a password using PBKDF2, and validate a stored password hash against a subsequently supplied password. Note that both bcrypt and scrypt offer better defence against ASIC/GPU attacks, but are not available within WebCrypto.
View crypto-pbkdf2.js
/**
* Returns PBKDF2 derived key from supplied password.
*
* Stored key can subsequently be used to verify that a password matches the original password used
* to derive the key, using pbkdf2Verify().
*
* @param {String} password - Password to be hashed using key derivation function.
* @param {Number} [iterations=1e6] - Number of iterations of HMAC function to apply.
* @returns {String} Derived key as base64 string.
*
You can’t perform that action at this time.
