ratelimit-header-parser

CI

Parse RateLimit headers of various forms into a normalized format. Supports the combined form from draft 7 of the IETF Rate Limit Headers standard, the uncombined RateLimit-* format of earlier drafts, traditional X-RateLimit-* headers, and a few other formats.

Usage:

import { parseRateLimit } from 'ratelimit-header-parser'

const response = await fetch(
	'https://api.github.com/repos/express-rate-limit/express-rate-limit/contributors?anon=1',
)

console.log('github ratelimit:', parseRateLimit(response))
// > github ratelimit: { limit: 60, used: 1, remaining: 59, reset: 2023-08-25T04:16:48.000Z }

API

parseRateLimit(responseOrHeadersObject, [options]) => Object | undefined

Scans the input for ratelimit headers in a variety of formats and returns the result in a consistent format, or undefined if it fails to find any ratelimit headers.

  • responseOrHeadersObject: May be either a fetch-style Response or Headers object or a node.js-style response or headers object
  • options: Optional object with the following optional fields:
    • reset: How to parse the reset field. If unset, the parser will guess based on the content. Accepts the following strings:
      • 'date': past the value to new Date(...) to let the JavaScript engine parse it
      • 'unix': treat the value as the number of seconds since January 1, 1970 (A.K.A a unix timestamp)
      • 'seconds': treat the value as the number of seconds from the current time
      • 'milliseconds': treat the value as the number of milliseconds from the current time

Returns a object with the following fields, or undefined if it does not find any rate-limit headers.

{
	limit: number
	used: number
	remaining: number
	reset: Date or undefined
}
