An RFC 4122 (UUID) implementation for PHP.


DrUUID's API has been designed to be as absolutely simple to use as possible. Generating a UUID is as simple as including the library and issuing a single method call:

require_once "autoload.php";
use JKingWeb\DrUUID\UUID;
echo UUID::mint();


DrUUID fully complies with RFC 4122, and therefore supports Version 1 (time-based), 3 (MD5-based), 4 (random) and 5 (SHA1-based) UUIDs:

require_once "autoload.php";
use JKingWeb\DrUUID\UUID;
echo UUID::mint(1)."\n";
echo UUID::mint(3, "some identifier", $private_namespace)."\n";
echo UUID::mint(4)."\n";
echo UUID::mint(5, "some identifier", $private_namespace)."\n";
