Home / News / Bounty - ICDevs.org UUID motoko library
Austin Fatheree, November 17 2021
This bounty gives the opportunity to
A donor(The Dragginz Team) generously funded a full bounty for ICDevs to help find a dev that would like to build a UUID library.
The spec for UUID v4 can be found at https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc4122
Quint has done a ton of work on this already at https://github.com/aviate-labs/uuid.mo. As a result we’ll give him first dibs on this bounty if he wants to update the library to add the psudorandom non-await branch.
There are a number of example libraries in other languages. You will need to transcode the library into motoko. This may require the construction of other sub libraries for encoding, string manipulation, and decoding.
There are unique properites that the IC has that you should take advantage of. The IC provides randomness via the Random base library. This library should have two modes. One where true randomness is used and another where an alternative form of randomness that does not require an async await to be used. Perhaps hashing the Principal of the canister plus an always increasing nonce might do the trick but a healthy discussion should ensue about what will work and what won’t.
