UUID - NodeJS & PHP [Open Source]


Here’s another quick extension which allows you to generate UUID quickly whenever needed.

Here is the full source and documentation:
NodeJS: https://gitlab.com/wappler-extensions/uuid-nodejs
PHP: https://gitlab.com/wappler-extensions/uuid-php

For NodeJS, you need 1 package - UUID.
But since this is already part of Wappler default packages, no installation is needed.

For PHP, you will have to install 1 package - UUID using Composer .
There are ways to generate UUID without 3rd-party packages, but we found this package to be reliable.

For details on how to integrate custom modules in your Wappler project, please refer the help doc here

Thank you for another extension Sid.

I use @JonL’s nanoid extensively - how does this compare/differ?

Genuine interest to know the pro’s / con’s of both.

As Jon’s post suggests, his extension is same as UUID, but faster.
This one has a benefit of not needing any additional package.
