API

xbytes(byte[, options])

Parse byte to human readable size. If byte is not a number or an number-like string, return null appropriately.

xbytes.parseSize(str[, config])

Parse human readable size to bytes

xbytes.isBytes(str)

Check if the provided string is a ByteString

xbytes.isUnit(str)

Check if the provided string is an UnitString

xbytes.isParsable(input)

Check if the provided argument is parsable i.e raw_bytes (number) or ByteString.

Wrap a HybridByte in a chainable, transformative object.

new ByteUnitObject('10 MiB')
// << ByteUnitObject { bytes: 10485760 }
