hex.string() is a user-contributed function maintained by the package author.

hex.string() converts a Flux basic type to a hexadecimal string.

The function is similar to string(), but encodes int, uint, and bytes types to hexadecimal lowercase characters.

Function type signature
(v: A) => string
For more information, see Function type signatures.

Parameters

v

(Required) Value to convert.

Examples

Convert integer to hexadecimal string

import "contrib/bonitoo-io/hex"

hex.string(v: 1234)// Returns 4d2

Convert a boolean to a hexadecimal string value

import "contrib/bonitoo-io/hex"

hex.string(v: true)// Returns "true"

Convert a duration to a hexadecimal string value

import "contrib/bonitoo-io/hex"

hex.string(v: 1m)// Returns "1m"

Convert a time to a hexadecimal string value

import "contrib/bonitoo-io/hex"

hex.string(v: 2021-01-01T00:00:00Z)// Returns "2021-01-01T00:00:00Z"

Convert an integer to a hexadecimal string value

import "contrib/bonitoo-io/hex"

hex.string(v: 1234)// Returns "4d2"

Convert a uinteger to a hexadecimal string value

import "contrib/bonitoo-io/hex"

hex.string(v: uint(v: 5678))// Returns "162e"

Convert a float to a hexadecimal string value

import "contrib/bonitoo-io/hex"

hex.string(v: 10.12)// Returns "10.12"

Convert bytes to a hexadecimal string value

import "contrib/bonitoo-io/hex"

hex.string(v: bytes(v: "Hello world!"))// Returns "48656c6c6f20776f726c6421"

Convert all values in a column to hexadecimal string values

Use map() to iterate over and update all input rows. Use hex.string() to update the value of a column. The following example uses data provided by the sampledata package.

import "sampledata"
import "contrib/bonitoo-io/hex"

data =
    sampledata.int()
        |> map(fn: (r) => ({r with _value: r._value * 1000}))

data
    |> map(fn: (r) => ({r with _value: hex.string(v: r.foo)}))

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
