methods

var ent = require('ent');
var encode = require('ent/encode');
var decode = require('ent/decode');

encode(str, opts={})

Escape unsafe characters in str with html entities.

By default, entities are encoded with numeric decimal codes.

If opts.numeric is false or opts.named is true, encoding will used named codes like &pi;.

If opts.special is set to an Object, the key names will be forced to be encoded (defaults to forcing: <>'"&). For example:

console.log(encode('hello', { special: { l: true } }));
he&#108;&#108;o

decode(str)

Convert html entities in str back to raw text.
