    rfc-3548-b32

    Implementation of RFC-3548 Base32 encoding/decoding for node that uses Buffers for input/output so it's binary safe.

    Installation

    npm install rfc-3548-b32 --save
    

    Usage

    var base32 = require('rfc-3548-b32');
    
    // Arbitrary binary data:
    var bytes = new Buffer([1, 2, 3, 4, 5]);
    
    // bytes (hex): 0102030405
    console.log("bytes (hex): %s", bytes.toString('hex'));
    
    // Encode it as base32 string:
    var bytesAsBase32 = base32.encode(bytes);
    
    // bytes (b32): AEBAGBAF
    console.log("bytes (b32): %s", bytesAsBase32);
    
    // Decode it back to a buffer:
    var decodedBytes = base32.decode(bytesAsBase32);
    
    // bytes (hex): 0102030405
    console.log("bytes (hex): %s", decodedBytes.toString('hex'));
    

    Functions

    encode(Buffer)

    Encodes the supplied Buffer in base32. Returns a String.

    decode(String)

    Decodes the supplied base32 String. Returns a Buffer.

    Testing

    Tests are in the ./test directory (mocha default). You can run the tests via make:

    $ make test
    

    Thanks

    Thanks to https://github.com/chrisumbel/thirty-two and https://github.com/OhJeez/thirty-two for the real work in writing the base32 code. This module is just a repackaged version of the latter with the encode return type changed to return a String.
