Build Status Coverage Status

A tiny npm module for saving Base64 encoded images that are part of data URLs to your file system. This is useful for saving images that have been uploaded to the browser via FileReader.readAsDataUrl().

Installation

npm i ba64 -S

Example

var ba64 = require("ba64"),
  data_url = "data:image/jpeg;base64,[Base64 encoded image goes here]";
 
// Save the image synchronously.
ba64.writeImageSync("myimage", data_url); // Saves myimage.jpeg.
 
// Or save the image asynchronously.
ba64.writeImage("myimage", data_url, function(err){
  if (err) throw err;
 
  console.log("Image saved successfully");
 
  // do stuff
});
