addressparser

Parse e-mail address fields. Input can be a single address ("andris@kreata.ee"), a formatted address ("Andris Reinman <andris@kreata.ee>"), comma separated list of addresses ("andris@kreata.ee, andris.reinman@kreata.ee"), an address group ("disclosed-recipients:andris@kreata.ee;") or a mix of all the formats.

In addition to comma the semicolon is treated as the list delimiter as well (except when used in the group syntax), so a value "andris@kreata.ee; andris.reinman@kreata.ee" is identical to "andris@kreata.ee, andris.reinman@kreata.ee".

Installation

Install with npm

npm install addressparser

Usage

Include the module

var addressparser = require('addressparser');

Parse some address strings with addressparser(field)

var addresses = addressparser('andris <andris@tr.ee>');
console.log(addresses); // [{name: "andris", address:"andris@tr.ee"}]

And when using groups

addressparser('Composers:"Bach, Sebastian" <sebu@example.com>, mozart@example.com (Mozzie);');

the result would be

[
    {
        name: "Composers",
        group: [
            {
                address: "sebu@example.com",
                name: "Bach, Sebastian"
            },
            {
                address: "mozart@example.com",
                name: "Mozzie"
            }
        ]
    }
]

Be prepared though that groups might be nested.

Notes

This module does not decode any mime-word or punycode encoded strings, it is only a basic parser for parsing the base data, you need to decode the encoded parts later by yourself
