To install it in your development directory:
elm package install billstclair/elm-sha256
To use it from your code:
import Sha256 exposing (sha256, ssa224) hash = sha256("foo") hash2 = sha224("foo")
example/example.elm contains an example comparing billstclair/elm-sha256, spisemisu/elm-sha, and the native JS. To run it:
cd .../elm-sha256/example elm-reactor
Then aim your browser at localhost:8000/example.elm.
It takes about a second before the screen appears (on my 2011 iMac), while it runs Sha256.sha256, SHA.sha256sum, and the native JS code, 1,000 times each, to time them.
The reason you might want to use the JS library is that it's 40 times as fast as the Elm version. The code is unoptimized. Just a fast-and-dirty translation. There are probably some tricks that could make it quite a bit faster without a lot of work, and I may try at some time, but for now, it works.
There are some very simple tests, running the hash functions on the same three strings as are displayed in the example. To run them, you'll need
cd .../elm-sha256/test make
