is-string-a-number NPM version Bundle size

Returns true if the value is a string number written in fixed notation and in decimal base.

Motivation

This utility module has a front-end purpose. As JavaScript doesn't provide a clean and unique way to check if a value is a number or written in a specific notation or base, type checking on numbers is hard.

Front-end developers often have to deal with user inputs, especially within forms. The need, here, is to validate a string value as a simple number in decimal base and fixed notation.

Code example

import isStringANumber from 'is-string-a-number'
 
isStringANumber('42')    // => true
isStringANumber('42e42') // => false
isStringANumber('0x2a')  // => false
isStringANumber('42.')   // => false
isStringANumber(42)      // => false
