This is a wp-kit component that handles password hashing.

This component was built to run within an Illuminate\Container\Container so is perfect for frameworks such as Themosis, Assely and wp-kit/theme.

wp-kit/hashing was built to support wp-kit/auth when authenticating users and comparing the input password against the stored password in WordPress.

There are many good reasons to use Eloquent but often password hashing on users can get in the way of using Eloquent to manage authentication in WordPress, and wp-kit/hashing aims to solve this problem.


If you're using Themosis, install via Composer in the root of your Themosis installation, otherwise install in your Composer driven theme folder:

composer require "wp-kit/hashing"


Add Service Provider

Just register the service provider in the providers config:

//inside theme/resources/config/providers.config.php

return [

Add Facade

If you are using Themosis or another Iluminate driven framework, you may want to add Facades, simply add them to your aliases:

//inside themosis-theme/resource/config/theme.config.php

'aliases' => [
    'Hasher' => WPKit\Hashing\Facades\Hasher::class


If you are using wp-kit/auth, hashing will work out of the box as illuminate/auth listens to the hash binding on the container which is register by HashingServiceProvider. However you can use the Hasher elsewhere in your application if you wish:

use WPKit\Hashing\Facades\Hasher;

$hashed = Hasher::make('some_password');

$validated = Hasher::check('some_password', $hashed);
