    The ambitious, easy to use unit converter

    Introduction

    easy-converter is a unit converter that will handle weight, length, area (..) conversions.

    For now it supports:

    • Length (distance)
    • Mass (weight)
    • Area
    • Computer storage

    Installation:

    npm install --save easy-converter

    Test:

    npm run test

    or

    npm test

    Example:

    var easyconverter = require('easy-converter');
    var c = new easyconverter();
    
    c.convert(1, 'cm').to('m');
    

    The converter will return NaN in case of an unauthorized conversion.

    c.convert(1, 'cm').to('b');
    // => NaN

    How to contribute

    Just fork and create a PR! Try to match the coding style and indentation (2 spaces tabs) of the files in this repository.

    To add a new converter just add add a module in lib/converters that exports an object containing units as keys and ratios as value the reference unit should have the value of 0.

    Example:

    module.exports = {
      "a": 1,
      "b": 2,
      "c": 3
    }
    

    This means b == 2 a and c == 3 a
