generates a Nano ID of the given size, which defaults to 21.

Nanoid supports both native and js_of_ocaml environments via a

cryptokit pseudo random number generator seeded with the

Unix.gettimeofday. This should yield
satisfying results for most application without ever blocking, unless
you need strong cryptographic guarantees for security reasons.
One can customize the random number generation by using the
nanoid_os library instead. The generated module will only work in
native code. One can regain this genericity by functorizing over the
Nanoid_os.S interface. The setup used in
nanoid.os is the one
