This is a ColdBox Module with a modest goal of aiding in creating, converting, and validating unique identities. It's not specific to UUIDs, but that's what's implemented currently.
Install using CommandBox:
box install identity-utility
To generate API documentation (for the one modest component in this project), execute the following:
box run-script generate-docs
The resulting static files can be viewed in a web browser from
To run the tests, execute the following:
box server start box testbox run
This will fire up an embedded server and run the TestBox spec for the utility, returning the results to the shell.
Within the component you'd like to make use of the Identity Utility, have WireBox inject an instance for you from the module's namespace:
property name="idutil" inject="[email protected]";
Once you have a reference to it, you can retrieve a new UUID using one of these methods:
You can easily normalize and convert a garbage UUID:
A value can be validated to be a UUID with the specified style:
With an instance of the utility, you can persist the desired UUID style:
After specifying the preferred UUID style, calls to
uuid() method will use your preference.
