Smallest/simplest possible means of using atob with both Node and browserify.
In the browser, decoding base64 strings is done using:
var decoded =
However in Node, it's done like so:
var decoded = encoded 'base64'
You can easily check if
Buffer exists and switch between the approaches
accordingly, but using
Buffer anywhere in your browser source will pull
Buffer shim which is pretty hefty. This package uses
browser fields in its
package.json to perform this
check at build time and avoid pulling
Buffer in unnecessarily.
decoded = atob(encoded)
Returns the decoded value of a base64-encoded string.
