    Convert a Blob to a Buffer.

    Sauce Test Status

    Say you're using the 'buffer' module on npm, or browserify and you're working with lots of binary data.

    Unfortunately, sometimes the browser or someone else's API gives you a Blob. Silly browser. How do you convert it to a Buffer?

    Something with a goofy FileReader thingy... Time to Google for it yet again... There must be a better way!

    There is! Simply use this module!

    Works in the browser. This module is used by WebTorrent!

    install

    npm install blob-to-buffer
    

    usage

    var toBuffer = require('blob-to-buffer')
     
    // Get a Blob somehow...
    var blob = new Blob([ new Uint8Array([1, 2, 3]) ], { type: 'application/octet-binary' })
     
    toBuffer(blob, function (err, buffer) {
      if (err) throw err
     
      buffer[0] // => 1
      buffer.readUInt8(1) // => 2
    })
