In a project

npm install --save phpbb-password

For command line use

npm install -g phpbb-password


In your code

var phpbb = require('phpbb-password');

// hash a password
var hash = phpbb.hash('bonjour, mot de passe');
console.log(hash); // examples : $H$9sPKRpbzFtCY8ZGFvmPQU7qAaZlQ1E. $H$9940UI0zss3hbAt6bytgCIAthYapG20

// verify 
var ok = phpbb.check_hash('bonjour, mot de passe', hash);

echo $(phpbb-password verify "mypassword" "$HASH")

Since the original PHP code come from PHPbb itself, I think this code must also be under the GPLv2. If you think we can use BSD or something else, let me know !
