Encoding

encoding is a simple wrapper around iconv-lite to convert strings from one encoding to another.

Build Status npm version

Initially encoding was a wrapper around node-iconv (main) and iconv-lite (fallback) and was used as the encoding layer for Nodemailer/mailparser. Somehow it also ended up as a dependency for a bunch of other project, none of these actually using node-iconv. The loading mechanics caused issues for front-end projects and Nodemailer/malparser had moved on, so node-iconv was removed.

Install

Install through npm

npm install encoding

Usage

Require the module

var encoding = require("encoding");

Convert with encoding.convert()

var resultBuffer = encoding.convert(text, toCharset, fromCharset);

Where

  • text is either a Buffer or a String to be converted
  • toCharset is the characterset to convert the string
  • fromCharset (optional, defaults to UTF-8) is the source charset

Output of the conversion is always a Buffer object.

Example

var result = encoding.convert("ÕÄÖÜ", "Latin_1");
console.log(result); //<Buffer d5 c4 d6 dc>
