Map of named character references.

Contents

What is this?

This is a map of named character references in HTML (latest) to the characters they represent.

When should I use this?

Maybe when you’re writing an HTML parser or minifier, but otherwise probably never! Even then, it might be better to use parse-entities or stringify-entities.

Install

This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 12.20+, 14.14+, or 16.0+), install with npm:

npm install character-entities

In Deno with esm.sh:

import {characterEntities} from 'https://esm.sh/character-entities@2'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import {characterEntities} from 'https://esm.sh/character-entities@2?bundle'
</script>

Use

import {characterEntities} from 'character-entities'

console.log(characterEntities.AElig) // => 'Æ'
console.log(characterEntities.aelig) // => 'æ'
console.log(characterEntities.amp) // => '&'
