Simple file hash digests and file integrity checks

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/chrissimpkins/hsh.svg?branch=master

Documentation: https://chrissimpkins.github.io/hsh/

Description

hsh is a cross-platform command line application that generates file hash digests and performs file integrity checks via file hash digest comparisons. It supports the following hash algorithms:

  • MD5
  • SHA1
  • SHA224
  • SHA256
  • SHA384
  • SHA512

Install

Install with pip using the command:

$ pip install hsh

or download the source repository, unpack it, and navigate to the top level of the repository. Then enter:

$ python setup.py install

Upgrade

You can upgrade your hsh version with the command:

$ pip install --upgrade hsh

Examples of hsh File Hash Digest Features

Default SHA256 File Hash Digests

$ hsh somefile.txt
SHA256 (somefile.txt) :
5c2b47648ae96e60b5d02c573aefa6b01fb49d1b9e1ebd8a1b1a794cf522e6e3

Change the File Hash Digest Algorithm with a Command

$ hsh sha1 somefile.txt
SHA1 (somefile.txt) :
0e1fb609e951c85e01f4048f01f0b51256bb3917

Examples of hsh File Integrity Check Features

Default SHA256 Digest File to File Comparisons

$ hsh firstfile.txt secondfile.txt

SHA256 (firstfile.txt) :
0dbe4bb7df0f6d271e8f1fc30ec586fdfb5218e5a615c9abd3843943b4779e9e
SHA256 (secondfile.txt) :
0dbe4bb7df0f6d271e8f1fc30ec586fdfb5218e5a615c9abd3843943b4779e9e

The hash digests are identical.

Automated File to File Hash Digest Comparisons for Supported Hash Types

$ hsh firstfile.txt 0e1fb609e951c85e01f4048f01f0b51256bb3917

SHA1 (firstfile.txt) :
0e1fb609e951c85e01f4048f01f0b51256bb3917
SHA1 (test) :
0e1fb609e951c85e01f4048f01f0b51256bb3917

The hash digests are identical.

File Hash Digest to File Hash Digest Comparisons

$ hsh da24f4932321286ac849f9145707f0e8 da24f4932321286ac849f9145707f0e9

da24f4932321286ac849f9145707f0e8
da24f4932321286ac849f9145707f0e9
===============================^

The hash digests are NOT identical.

A diff string is displayed below the hash digests when they differ as shown in the example above.

Usage
