A simple Polyfill for giving libsodium compatibility when having sodium installed.

Build Status

The new sodium extension has been accepted and will be distributed with PHP >= 7.2.
This will have a few breaking changes:

  • No more \Sodium\ namespace. Everything must be in the global namespace.
  • The extension will be renamed to sodium.
  • \Sodium\randombytes_buf() and \Sodium\randombytes_random16() have been removed.

So the current namespaced functions will not work anymore. So we created a polyfill for this.



Using Composer:

The easiest way to install is to require the polyfill-libsodium library with Composer:

composer require mollie/polyfill-libsodium

After installation of the package the bootstrap.php file will be autoloaded.

Manual installation:
Checkout or download all the files and include them manually into your project.

Include the bootstrap file in your project:

require 'vendor/mollie/polyfill-libsodium/bootstrap.php';
