Fast base64 support

This package provides a Haskell library for working with base64-encoded data quickly and efficiently, using the ByteString type.


This library is written in pure Haskell, and it's fast:

  • 250 MB/sec encoding

  • 200 MB/sec strict decoding (per RFC 4648)

  • 100 MB/sec lenient decoding

Get involved!

Please report bugs via the bitbucket issue tracker.

Master Mercurial repository:

  • hg clone http://bitbucket.org/bos/base64-bytestring

There's also a git mirror:

  • git clone git://github.com/bos/base64-bytestring.git

(You can create and contribute changes using either Mercurial or git.)


This library is written and maintained by Bryan O'Sullivan, bos@serpentine.com.
