Nano ID


A tiny, secure, URL-friendly, unique string ID generator for JavaScript.

  • Small. 109 bytes (minified and brotlied). No dependencies. Size Limit controls the size.
  • Safe. It uses hardware random generator. Can be used in clusters.
  • Short IDs. It uses a larger alphabet than UUID (A-Za-z0-9_-). So ID size was reduced from 36 to 21 symbols.
  • Portable. Nano ID was ported to over 20 programming languages.
