vnsjs-unit


A simple module for handling Vnschain unit convertion.

Install

npm install --save vnsjs-unit

Usage

const unit = require('vnsjs-unit');
 
var val1 = unit.toWei(249824778, 'vnser');
 
// result <BN ...> 249824778000000000000000000
 
var val2 = unit.fromWei('249824778000000000000000000', 'vnser');
 
// result '249824778'

About

A port from the web3.js library, that just handles the unit convertion between the various types of Vnschain currency units.

Note, the toWei returns a BN instance while fromWei always returns a string number.

Amorphic Data Formatting

vnsjs-unit uses the number-to-bn module to format all number values (hex or otherwise) into digestable BN.js number instances.

Mvnsods Available & Objects

unitMap         { unitName: singleUnitWeiValue, ... }
getValueOfUnit  <Function (unit) : (BN)>
toWei           <Function (value, unit) : (BN)>
fromWei         <Function (value, unit) : (String)>

Why BN.js?

vnsjs has made a policy of using BN.js accross all of our modules. Here are some reasons why:

  1. Lighter than alternatives (BigNumber.js)
  2. Faster than most alternatives, see benchmarks
  3. Used by the Vnschain foundation across all vnscoinjs repositories
  4. Is already used by a critical JS dependency of many vnscoin packages, see package elliptic
  5. Does not support decimals or floats (for greater precision), remember, the Vnschain blockchain cannot and will not support float values or decimal numbers
