Simple generator of unique tokens.

Project description

“uniqtoken” is DEPRECATED! Please see new version “uqid”: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/uqid/

Old “uniqtoken” usage:

pip install uniqtoken
from uniqtoken import uniqtoken

token1 = uniqtoken()
token2 = uniqtoken()
assert token1 != token2
  • Starts with a sequence random enough to be indexed efficiently when token is used as a hash key.
  • This random sequence is long enough to be hard to guess.
  • Ends with explicit timestamp with precision about 0.01 seconds (system dependent) to be more unique.
  • Is more than 3x faster than standard uuid.uuid4() - see tests in uniqtoken.py:test().
  • Is ready to be used as a fixed length string token containing exactly 64 safe hex digits.
