  • Upgraded to Laravel 5
  • Upgraded to Hashids 1.0.5


  • Several public functions are renamed to be more appropriate:

    • Function encrypt() changed to encode()
    • Function decrypt() changed to decode()
    • Function encryptHex() changed to encodeHex()
    • Function decryptHex() changed to decodeHex()

    Hashids was designed to encode integers, primary ids at most. Hashids is the wrong algorithm to encrypt sensitive data. So to encourage more appropriate use, encrypt/decrypt is being "downgraded" to encode/decode.

  • Version tag added: 1.0

  • updated
