Constant Functions for Hex / Base64 Decoding

Build Status License: MIT OR Apache-2.0 rust 1.51.0+ required

Documentation: Docs.rs crate docs (master)

Constant functions for converting hex- and base64-encoded strings into bytes in Rust. Works on stable Rust and in no-std environments. Base-(2,4,8,16,32,64) encodings with custom alphabets are supported as well.

Usage

Add this to your Crate.toml:

[dependencies]
const-decoder = "0.2.0"

Example of usage:

use const_decoder::Decoder;
// An Ed25519 secret key.
const SECRET_KEY: [u8; 64] = Decoder::Hex.decode(
    b"9e55d1e1aa1f455b8baad9fdf975503655f8b359d542fa7e4ce84106d625b352\
      06fac1f22240cffd637ead6647188429fafda9c9cb7eae43386ac17f61115075",
);

Bech32 encoding:

use const_decoder::{Decoder, Encoding};
const BECH32: Decoder = Decoder::Custom(
    Encoding::new("qpzry9x8gf2tvdw0s3jn54khce6mua7l"),
);
// Sample address from the Bech32 spec excluding the `tb1q` prefix
// and the checksum suffix.
const SAMPLE_ADDR: [u8; 32] =
    BECH32.decode(b"rp33g0q5c5txsp9arysrx4k6zdkfs4nce4xj0gdcccefvpysxf3q");

See more examples in the crate docs.

Alternatives

hex-literal and binary_macros crates expose similar functionality as procedural macros. Because of this, macros cannot be used in no-std environments, while this approach can.
