money.js / fx()

Simple and tiny JavaScript library for realtime currency conversion and exchange rate calculation, from any currency, to any currency.

money.js is lightweight, has no dependencies, and works great client-side or server-side. Use standalone or as a nodeJS/npm and AMD/requireJS module.

Designed for seamless integration with the Open Exchange Rates API, but can be integrated with any source of currency data or with static/cached/approximate exchange rates.
