Description orimarko 2017-11-08 12:50:52 UTC
I suggest upgrading MD5Hex Assertion to Digest Assertion 

Currently it only assert using MD5 algorithm, but we can allow other SHA assertions.
Support similar algorithms as the new __digest function.

Looks like a good idea.
Just to keep backward compatibility , can you proceed the following way if you intend to submit a patch:

- Keep class name as it but update javadocs and docs
- A select box should provide available algorithm, defaulting to MD5 for backward compatibility
- I supppose there will be other parameters depending on algorithm
- MD5Hex should become HashHex

It would also be interesting to make this assertion appliable on Variables
