Vasuki generates different kinds of random unique identifiers, tokens and words
Vasuki generates different kinds of random unique identifiers, tokens and words.
It aims to make identifier generation effortless.
There might still be dragons.
The algorithms curated here generate different kinds of random and pseudo-random identifiers, tokens, names or passwords, let’s just call them “prwords”. While some of the generated “prwords” max out on the randomness and uniqueness aspects like UUIDs, others compromise on the time vs. space domain but focus more on human memorability and empathize with their common sense and humor. Saying that, humans should know what they are doing when using these identifiers in different contexts. YMMV.
pip install vasuki
With service API:
pip install vasuki[service]
Unique ID generators
- UUIDv4 universally unique identifier
- ULID universally unique lexicographically sortable identifier
- Gibberish random, pronounceable pseudo-words
- MomentName, a short epoch slug
- Nagamani19, a short, unique, non-sequential identifier based on Hashids and a custom Epoch starting on January 1, 2019.
Time and randomness is usually taking from the system as implemented by the libraries underpinning this package.
- six-nibble-name converts six nibbles (three bytes) into a 4-character name
Optional service API
The fine responder optionally exposes the machinery as HTTP API.
# UUIDv4 universally unique identifier. vasuki uuid # ULID universally unique lexicographically sortable identifier. vasuki ulid # Gibberish random, pronounceable pseudo-words vasuki gibberish # MomentName short epoch slugs vasuki moment # Nagamani19 short, unique, non-sequential identifier. vasuki naga19
# UUIDv4 vasuki uuid d192b464-d32c-48f1-9c23-0fe04a4e8133 # ULID 01DEFKXYCJ0E91DQY0YPWZY01D # Gibberish vasuki gibberish shoomly # MomentName vasuki moment Zese # Nagamani19 vasuki naga19 Xm3k6mWq
Vasuki can apply uppercase or lowercase transformation to the generated identifier or word:
# UUIDv4, uppercase vasuki uuid --upper 43FA0272-CA48-40AE-8CC1-204302D91D89 # ULID, lowercase vasuki ulid --lower 01defkz01k47dqkvcyhy0mz06e
With variable word length
vasuki gibberish --size medium schreblyiopp
vasuki slug 42 --format=sixnibble Baca
Multiple tokens at once
vasuki naga19 --count 10 vasuki gibberish --size large --count 50
Start the Vasuki service as daemon:
Example requests would look like:
# UUIDv4 /unique/uuid # Uppercase UUIDv4 /unique/uuid?upper=true # Multiple ULIDs /unique/ulid?count=10 # Very short Nagamani19 /unique/naga19?size=small

Kurma is one of the avatars of Vishnu. He appears in the form of a tortoise or turtle to support the foundation of the cosmos, while the gods and demons churn the cosmic ocean with the help of serpent Vasuki to produce the nectar of immortality.
Vasuki is a naga serpent king, occasionally coiling around Kurma’s or Shiva’s neck, who blessed and wore him as an ornament. He is described as having a gem called Nagamani on his head.
