    utf8-byte-length build status

    Get the utf8 byte length of a string, taking into account multi-byte characters and surrogate pairs.

    By default, this module defers to Buffer.byteLength. A browser implementation is also provided that doesn't use Buffer.byteLength minimize build size.

    Example

    var getLength = require("utf8-byte-length")
    console.log(truncate("a☃", 2)) // a = 1 byte, ☃ = 3 bytes
    // -> 4

    API

    var getLength = require("utf8-byte-length")

    When using browserify or webpack, this automatically resolves to an implementation that does not use Buffer.byteLength.

    getLength(string)

    Returns the byte length of string. Throws an error if string is not a string.
