# XXH3

[![CI build status](](
[![Hex docs](](
[![Hex Version](](

Erlang NIF bindings for XXH3 hash functions implemented in Rust.

## Introduction

XXH3 is a new speed-optimized hash algorithm of the [xxHash](
family of non-cryptographic hash functions, featuring:

  - Improved speed for both small and large inputs
  - True 64-bit and 128-bit outputs
  - SIMD acceleration
  - Improved 32-bit viability

Speed analysis methodology is explained [here](

## Implementation

Erlang nif interface does not support passing bigints to the VM, so for 128-bit variants
a 128-bit binary is passed, and then converted to a 128-bit integer in erlang.

## Usage
Note that only binary data is accepted. For other types of data you can
first convert them to a binary using `erlang:term_to_binary/1`.

In Erlang

Data = <<"Test Data">>,
Seed = 1,
Secret = crypto:strong_rand_bytes(136),

H64 = xxh3:hash64(Data),
H64WithSeed = xxh3:hash64(Data, Seed),
H64WithSecret = xxh3:hash64_with_secret(Data, Secret),

H128 = xxh3:hash128(Data),
H128WithSeed = xxh3:hash128(Data, Seed),
H128WithSecret = xxh3:hash128_with_secret(Data, Secret).

H64Stream = xxh3:new(),
xxh3:update(H64Stream, Data),
H64 = xxh3:digest(H64Stream)

In Elixir

data = "Test Data"
seed = 1
secret = :crypto.strong_rand_bytes(136)

h64 = :xxh3.hash64(data)
h64_with_seed = :xxh3.hash64(data, seed)
h64_with_secret = :xxh3.hash64_with_secret(data, secret)

h128 = :xxh3.hash128(data)
h128_with_seed = :xxh3.hash128(data, seed)
h128_with_secret = :xxh3.hash128_with_secret(data, secret)

h64_stream =,
:xxh3.update(h64_stream, data),
h64 = :xxh3.digest(h64_stream)
