    readutf

    A thin wrapper around fs.readFile that automatically sets the encoding to utf8 on your behest

    Installation

    npm install --save readutf

    Summary

    I typically forget that "utf8" is not the default encoding when reading in a file. This wrapper sets { encoding: 'utf8' } on fs.readFile and fs.readFileSync so you can pass only a filename or filename and callback.

    Usage

    var utf = require('readutf');
    utf.readFile('./lib/filename.txt', function(err, contents) {
      // "contents" is a string
    });
    var contents = utf.readFileSync('./lib/other-thing.ext'); // Also a string
