Parse a magnet URI and return an object of keys/values.

const magnet = require('magnet-uri')
 
// "Leaves of Grass" by Walt Whitman
const uri = 'magnet:?xt=urn:btih:d2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36&dn=Leaves+of+Grass+by+Walt+Whitman.epub&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.example4.com%3A80&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.example5.com%3A80&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.example3.com%3A6969&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.example2.com%3A80&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.example1.com%3A1337'
 
const parsed = magnet.decode(uri)
console.log(parsed.dn) // "Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman.epub"
console.log(parsed.infoHash) // "d2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36"
 

The parsed magnet link object looks like this:

  {
    "xt": "urn:btih:d2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36",
    "dn": "Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman.epub",
    "tr": [
      "udp://tracker.example1.com:1337",
      "udp://tracker.example2.com:80",
      "udp://tracker.example3.com:6969",
      "udp://tracker.example4.com:80",
      "udp://tracker.example5.com:80"
    ],
 
    // added for convenience:
    "infoHash": "d2474e86c95b19b8bcfdb92bc12c9d44667cfa36",
    "infoHashBuffer": ...,
    "name": "Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman.epub",
    "announce": [
      "udp://tracker.example1.com:1337",
      "udp://tracker.example2.com:80",
      "udp://tracker.example3.com:6969",
      "udp://tracker.example4.com:80",
      "udp://tracker.example5.com:80"
    ]
  }

encode

Convert an object of key/values into a magnet URI string.

const magnet = require('magnet-uri')
 
const uri = magnet.encode({
  xt: [
    'urn:ed2k:354B15E68FB8F36D7CD88FF94116CDC1',
    'urn:tree:tiger:7N5OAMRNGMSSEUE3ORHOKWN4WWIQ5X4EBOOTLJY',
    'urn:btih:QHQXPYWMACKDWKP47RRVIV7VOURXFE5Q'
  ],
  xl: '10826029',
  dn: 'mediawiki-1.15.1.tar.gz',
  tr: [
    'udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80/announce'
  ],
  as: 'http://download.wikimedia.org/mediawiki/1.15/mediawiki-1.15.1.tar.gz',
  xs: [
    'http://cache.example.org/XRX2PEFXOOEJFRVUCX6HMZMKS5TWG4K5',
    'dchub://example.org'
  ]
})
 
console.log(uri) // the magnet uri

The returned magnet uri will be:

magnet:?xt=urn:ed2k:354B15E68FB8F36D7CD88FF94116CDC1&xt=urn:tree:tiger:7N5OAMRNGMSSEUE3ORHOKWN4WWIQ5X4EBOOTLJY&xt=urn:btih:QHQXPYWMACKDWKP47RRVIV7VOURXFE5Q&xl=10826029&dn=mediawiki-1.15.1.tar.gz&tr=udp%3A%2F%2Ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3A80%2Fannounce&as=http%3A%2F%2Fdownload.wikimedia.org%2Fmediawiki%2F1.15%2Fmediawiki-1.15.1.tar.gz&xs=http%3A%2F%2Fcache.example.org%2FXRX2PEFXOOEJFRVUCX6HMZMKS5TWG4K5&xs=dchub%3A%2F%2Fexample.org

You can also use convenience key names like name (dn), infoHash (xt), infoHashBuffer (xt), announce (tr), and keywords (kt).
