Quick and easy Base62 encoder and decoder. The difference between this gem and many others is that it operates on an array of bytes.
Install the gem and add to the application's Gemfile by executing:
$ bundle add bs62
If bundler is not being used to manage dependencies, install the gem by executing:
$ gem install bs62
encode to encode an array of bytes into Base62:
require "bs62" bytes = SecureRandom.hex(4).bytes # [99, 56, 97, 54, 57, 101, 54, 97] Bs62.encode(bytes) # "jY45tzXOpUU"
decode to convert a Base62 string to an array of bytes:
require "bs62" str = "jY45tzXOpUU" Bs62.decode(str) # [99, 56, 97, 54, 57, 101, 54, 97]
