encoding is a simple wrapper around iconv-lite to convert strings from one encoding to another.
Initially encoding was a wrapper around node-iconv (main) and iconv-lite (fallback) and was used as the encoding layer for Nodemailer/mailparser. Somehow it also ended up as a dependency for a bunch of other project, none of these actually using node-iconv. The loading mechanics caused issues for front-end projects and Nodemailer/malparser had moved on, so node-iconv was removed.
Install through npm
npm install encoding
Require the module
var encoding = require("encoding");
Convert with encoding.convert()
var resultBuffer = encoding.convert(text, toCharset, fromCharset);
Output of the conversion is always a Buffer object.
var result = encoding.convert("ÕÄÖÜ", "Latin_1"); console.log(result); //<Buffer d5 c4 d6 dc>
