Announcement : NGX_HTTP_SET_VAR_MODULE

Hi,

As inspired by the previous comments about setting hash values to
variables, here’s a small module that does just that.

Currently you can generate the MD5, SHA1 and Murmurhash2 values (in
uppercase hexadecimal) of a string, which can include variables.

There are three directives, which can be used anywhere in the http
configuration

usage :

location /hash {
set_md5 $md5_val $hash_string;
set_sha1 $sha1_val “some long string with a variable $var”;
set_mm2 $murmurhash2_val “a static string hash”;
}

download :

http://simpl.it/ngx/set_var/ngx_http_set_var_module-0.1.0.tar.gz

to do :

  • documentation online (soon)
  • other hashes (let me know if you have any specific ones you want
    added)
  • url escaping

feedback :

If you have any comments (good/bad), or would like some specific
features, let me know.

Hope it’s of use to some people.

Cheers,

Marcus.
