    Encoding

    encoding is a simple wrapper around iconv-lite to convert strings from one encoding to another.

    Build Status npm version

    Initially encoding was a wrapper around node-iconv (main) and iconv-lite (fallback) and was used as the encoding layer for Nodemailer/mailparser. Somehow it also ended up as a dependency for a bunch of other project, none of these actually using node-iconv. The loading mechanics caused issues for front-end projects and Nodemailer/malparser had moved on, so node-iconv was removed.

    Install

    Install through npm

    npm install encoding
    

    Usage

    Require the module

    var encoding = require("encoding");
    

    Convert with encoding.convert()

    var resultBuffer = encoding.convert(text, toCharset, fromCharset);
    

    Where

    • text is either a Buffer or a String to be converted
    • toCharset is the characterset to convert the string
    • fromCharset (optional, defaults to UTF-8) is the source charset

    Output of the conversion is always a Buffer object.

    Example

    var result = encoding.convert("ÕÄÖÜ", "Latin_1");
    console.log(result); //<Buffer d5 c4 d6 dc>
