A collection of utility functions for Ethereum. It can be used in Node.js and in the browser with browserify.

INSTALL

npm install ethereumjs-util

USAGE

import assert from 'assert'
import { isValidChecksumAddress, unpadBuffer, BN } from 'ethereumjs-util'

const address = '0x2F015C60E0be116B1f0CD534704Db9c92118FB6A'
assert.ok(isValidChecksumAddress(address))

assert.equal(unpadBuffer(Buffer.from('000000006600', 'hex')), Buffer.from('6600', 'hex'))

assert.equal(new BN('dead', 16).add(new BN('101010', 2)), 57047)

ethjs-util methods

The following methods are available provided by ethjs-util:

  • arrayContainsArray
  • toBuffer
  • getBinarySize
  • stripHexPrefix
  • isHexPrefixed
  • isHexString
  • padToEven
  • intToHex
  • fromAscii
  • fromUtf8
  • toUtf8
  • toAscii

Import can be done directly by function name analogous to the build-in function import:

import { intToHex, stripHexPrefix } from 'ethereumjs-util'

Re-Exports

Additionally ethereumjs-util re-exports a few commonly-used libraries. These include:

EthereumJS

See our organizational documentation for an introduction to EthereumJS as well as information on current standards and best practices.
