Download the PHP package hashids/hashids without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package hashids/hashids. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.

Informations about the package hashids


Build Status Monthly Downloads Latest Version

Hashids is a small PHP library to generate YouTube-like ids from numbers. Use it when you don't want to expose your database numeric ids to users:

Getting started

Require this package, with Composer, in the root directory of your project.

Then you can import the class into your application:

Note: Hashids requires either the BC Math or GMP extension in order to work.

Quick Example

More Options

A few more ways to pass input ids to the encode() function:

Making your output ids unique

Pass a project name to make your output ids unique:

Use padding to make your output ids longer

Note that output ids are only padded to fit at least a certain length. It doesn't mean that they will be exactly that length.

Using a custom alphabet

Encode hex instead of numbers

Useful if you want to encode Mongo's ObjectIds. Note that there is no limit on how large of a hex number you can pass (it does not have to be Mongo's ObjectId).


  1. When decoding, output is always an array of numbers (even if you encoded only one number):

  2. Encoding negative numbers is not supported.
  3. If you pass bogus input to encode(), an empty string will be returned:

  4. Do not use this library as a security measure. Do not encode sensitive data with it. Hashids is not an encryption library.


The primary purpose of Hashids is to obfuscate numeric ids. It's not meant or tested to be used as a security or compression tool. Having said that, this algorithm does try to make these ids random and unpredictable:

There is no pattern shown when encoding multiple identical numbers (3 shown in the following example):

The same is true when encoding a series of numbers vs. encoding them separately:

Curse words! #$%@

This code was written with the intent of placing the output ids in visible places, like the URL. Therefore, the algorithm tries to avoid generating most common English curse words by generating ids that never have the following letters next to each other:

Requires php Version ^7.2 || ^8.0
ext-mbstring Version *
