srt parser and composer
A couple of modules to parse and generate srt files. No external dependencies needed.
- parse an srt file or srt string (content of an srt file) into a json or plain text.
- create an srt file from json
- parse an srt file into a csv file.
srt file it returns json or a plain text of all the lines.

Srt lines vs file lines
In the code comments I refer both to srt lines and file lines, so I thought I'd clarify.
1 00:00:00,160 --> 00:00:04,890 There’s this door on the 10th floor I just hate so much.
While in terms of file lines the following are all considered individual lines.
00:00:00,160 --> 00:00:04,890
There’s this door on the 10th floor I just
hate so much.
The srt parser has for possible outputs - srt parser
The parser has 4 functions,
they both take in an srt file (file path/name) as input
parseSrtFileToJson returns a json and
parseSrtFileToText returns plain text without timecodes.
You can also parse the content of an srt file, what I refer to as an
srt string directly to plain text or json using using
parseSrtFileToJson returns a json like the one below.
and can be used as follows.
//var parser = require("./index.js");var srtParser = parser;var srtFile = './example/nroman_door_manual_transcription.srt'srtParser;
Example json output
parseSrtFileToText returns a plain text like the one below and can be used like so.
var fs = ;var srtParser = parser;var srtFile = './example/nroman_door_manual_transcription.srt'srtParser;
Plain text output Example
There’s this door on the 10th floor I just hate so much. Goddammit! Do you ever get this door wrong? “pretty regularly.” How often? “like 30% of the time.” Have you seen people misuse it? All the time. Every day. Constantly. I hate this door. Me too Kelsey.
working with srt string
I was had a use case of a speech to text API that returned an srt file. but rather then returning the file, It was returning a string with the content of the srt file.
So for flexibility, you can also parse the content of an srt file, what I refer to as an
srt string directly to plain text or json using.
And they give the same output as their file opening counterpart described above. Only difference they take in the content of the srt as a string rather then file path/name of the srt file.
You can find an example
srt in the example folder. And some example of the output int he
you can run following command in terminal to try the example
srt json it returns an srt file either as a string content of the srt or as a path to where the srt file as been written to disk.
For example of
srt json specs see
var fs = ;var srtComposer = composer;var srtJson = './example_output/norman_door_human_transcription.json';var srtJsonContent = JSON;//creating srt string from jsonsrtComposer//creating srt file from jsonvar JsonToSrtTest = './example_output/composer_test_srt_from_json.srt';srtComposer
Srt file to CSV
Sometimes you want to share an srt and get some feedback on it. A google spreadsheet is generally the most effective. With this module you can convert your srt to a csv file, so that it can be uploaded to google spreadsheet, or some other use case.
|1||00:00:00,160||00:00:04,890||There’s this door on the 10th floor I just hate so much.|
|3||00:00:05,799||00:00:11,629||Do you ever get this door wrong? “pretty regularly.”|
|4||00:00:11,629||00:00:12,000||How often? “like 30% of the time.”|
Takes in file path/name of the srt file, the desired name/path for the csv file, and the callback returns the csv file name you specified once it's done writing to disk.
var srtToCsv = srtToCsv;var demoCsvFile = './example_output/demo_test.csv'
You can run the example with
