mail-parser - Module for MailTo parsing

Overview

MailTo-Parser is a module that provides functions for parsing mailto: URLs that is loosly based upon the standard url module within node. Parsing is derived from the excellent parseUri function by Steven Levithan, but stripped down for the mailto scheme.

What's a mailto: URL?

The best place to start if you want to know more about mailto: UTRLs (of course) the wikipedia article on MailTo and MailTo Syntax.

Installation

npm install mailto-parser

Using the Module

The 'mailto-parser' module is accessed in the standard way by calling require("mailto-parser"); and once loaded you have access to the following objects and functions.

Class mailto-parser.Parser

The Parser class is a wrapper object class that provides access to an object that can be used to parse mailto: instances.

This class has the following interface:

Constructor Parser(options)

Creates a new instance with the specified options

Method Parser.parse(mailtoStr, strictMode)

Parses an MailTo into components (optionally in strict mode)

Method Parser.complete(obj)

Creates a complete MailTo definition from its components

Method Parser.format(obj)

Formats an MailTo definition into a well-formed MailTo string

Function mailto-parser.parse

The parse function is a proxy to the Parser.parse(mailtoStr, strictMode) method on a singleton Parser instance that is created for the module.

Function mailto-parser.complete

The complete function is a proxy to the Parser.complete(obj) method on a singleton Parser instance that is created for the module.

Function mailto-parser.format

The format function is a proxy to the Parser.format(obj) method on a singleton Parser instance that is created for the module.
