var ayb = require('all-your-base');
 
// convert 'abcdef', from base-16 to base-2
ayb.parseInt('abcdef', 16, 2)
 
// Or directly call the conversion methods
ayb.decToBin(22);
ayb.hexToDec('10000');

From command line

First, type npm link from your local repo's root directory. The executable is named ayb. Name a method & space separate your arguments.

$ ayb parseInt 65536 10 16
10000

base 8 octal oct

List of all operations

Here's an exhaustive list for your reference.

parseInt

The native parseInt method will let you convert another base to base-10. But the one provided in this module will let you convert to another base. It's merely a wrapper for the other conversion methods.

  • ayb.parseInt(value, fromBase, toBase)
    • value, String. The value in the base you want to convert.
    • fromBase, Number. Specify the base you are converting from.
      • If you are using a script & pass in undefined, then it is assumed you are converting from base-10
    • toBase, Number.Specify the base you are converting to.
      • If you don't pass in anything, then it is assumed you are converting from base-10.

For the following methods, pass in a numerical as a string.

From binary
  • binToDec
  • binToHex
  • binToOct
From octal
  • octToDec
  • octToBin
  • octToHex
From decimal
  • decToBin
  • decToHex
  • decToOct
From hexadecimal
  • hexToDec
  • hexToBin
  • hexToOct

The pattern: [old]To[New]
[old] is the first three letters of the base you are converting from.
[New] is the first three letters of the base to convert to.

Notice, the function name is lowerCamelCased.
