Usage

CLI

For basic info (subject, altnames, issuedAt, expiresAt):

cert-info /path/to/cert.pem

node.js

'use strict';
 
var certinfo = require('cert-info');
var cert = fs.readFile('cert.pem', 'ascii', function (err, certstr) {
 
  // basic info
  console.info(certinfo.info(certstr));
 
  // if you need to submit a bug report
  console.info(certinfo.debug(certstr));
});

Example output:

{
  "subject": "localhost.example.com",
  "altnames": [
    "localhost.example.com"
  ],
  "issuedAt": 1465516800000,
  "expiresAt": 1499731199000
}

With a few small changes this could also work in the browser (it has no dependencies and all of the non-browser things are on the Enc object).
