checksum-validator is a small convenient Electron application, which can quickly calculate hashes of files. It is primarily intended to validate checksums of downloaded files.
Since V 1.1.1 the update process should work with the correct visualization. Previous versions had a little bug, which caused the download process not being visualized.
- MacOS (tested under V. 10.13 (High Sierra))
- Windows (tested under Win 10 Pro, Version 1803)
Head over to the releases section and download the latest distribution.
After installing it you are ready to use checksum-validator.
To calculate and validate the checksum of files, head over to the
Check pane and either drag and drop four file into the drag area or select it by clicking on it. Then just type in the checksum you want to validate and select the hash algorithm which was used to generate the checksum.
Past Checks pane you have the opportunity to have a look at all checksums you have validated so far. Furthermore you can export the checked file as .json and take a look at other hashes of the file.
On start the application will check if an update is available. If an update is available it will either be installed automatically or the application will tell you that an update is ready to be installed. You can also trigger this check manually by
checksum-validator --> Check for updates...
Settings pane you can configure the application so it is suitable for your use case.
Additionally you can select the language of the application. By default
Checksum Validator will take the
app locale to set the language but you can also manually change the language. By now 2 languages are available:
