Library of encoding/decoding related functionality for Hexadecimal, Base64 and Base32.


ByteDev.Encoding has been written as a .NET Standard 2.0 library, so you can consume it from a .NET Core or .NET Framework 4.6.1 (or greater) application.

ByteDev.Encoding is hosted as a package on To install from the Package Manager Console in Visual Studio run:

Install-Package ByteDev.Encoding

Further details can be found on the nuget page.

Release Notes

Releases follow semantic versioning.

Full details of the release notes can be viewed on GitHub.


The main library classes include:

  • Base32Encoder
  • Base64Encoder
  • HexEncoder
  • Serializer
  • EncoderFactory

String extension methods:

  • IsBase32
  • IsBase64
  • IsHex

Char extension methods:

  • IsBase32
  • IsBase64
  • IsHex


Base32Encoder provides a way to encode to base32 strings and decode back again.

IEncoder encoder = new Base32Encoder();

string base32 = encoder.Encode("John");
// base32 == "JJXWQ3Q="

bool isBase32 = base32.IsBase32();
// isBase32 == true

string text = encoder.Decode(base32);
// text == "John"


Base64Encoder provides a way to encode to base64 strings and decode back again.

IEncoder encoder = new Base64Encoder();

string base64 = encoder.Encode("John");
// base64 == "Sm9obg=="

bool isBase64 = base64.IsBase64();
// isBase64 == true

string text = encoder.Decode(base64);
// text == "John"


HexEncoder provides a way to encode to hexadecimal strings and decode back again.

IEncoder encoder = new HexEncoder('='); // optional delimiter arg

string hex = encoder.Encode("John");
// hex == "4A=6F=68=6E"

bool isHex = hex.IsHex('=');
// isHex == true

string text = encoder.Decode(hex);
// text == "John"


The Serializer class provides a way to serialize/deserialize objects based on the provided IEncoder implementation (Base32, Base64 or Hex).

// Entity to serialize
public class Person
    public string Name { get; set; }

// ...

var person = new Person { Name = "John Smith" }
// Setup serializer
IEncoder encoder = new Base64Encoder();

ISerializer serializer = new Serializer(encoder);
// Serialize
string base64 = serializer.Serialize(person);
// Deserialize
Person person = serializer.Deserialize<Person>(base64);


The EncoderFactory provides a convenient way to create a type of encoder based on the EncodingType.

IEncoderFactory factory = new EncoderFactory();

IEncoder base64Encoder = factory.Create(EncodingType.Base64);
