🛠 CID tool

A command line tool for converting, formatting and discovering properties of CIDs.

In the near future IPFS will be switching it’s default CID version for added content to version 1 and will use base 32 encoding for serialized CIDs. This tool gives you the power to inspect and learn about CIDs as well as convert any CIDs you’ve been using from whatever base they’re encoded in to a different base!
