The ambitious, easy to use unit converter

Introduction

easy-converter is a unit converter that will handle weight, length, area (..) conversions.

For now it supports:

  • Length (distance)
  • Mass (weight)
  • Area
  • Computer storage

Installation:

npm install --save easy-converter

Test:

npm run test

or

npm test

Example:

var easyconverter = require('easy-converter');
var c = new easyconverter();

c.convert(1, 'cm').to('m');

The converter will return NaN in case of an unauthorized conversion.

c.convert(1, 'cm').to('b');
// => NaN

How to contribute

Just fork and create a PR! Try to match the coding style and indentation (2 spaces tabs) of the files in this repository.

To add a new converter just add add a module in lib/converters that exports an object containing units as keys and ratios as value the reference unit should have the value of 1.

Example:

module.exports = {
  "a": 1,
  "b": 2,
  "c": 3
}

This means b == 2 a and c == 3 a
