Install

Install with npm:

$ npm install --save is-number

Why is this needed?

In JavaScript, it's not always as straightforward as it should be to reliably check if a value is a number. It's common for devs to use +, -, or Number() to cast a string value to a number (for example, when values are returned from user input, regex matches, parsers, etc). But there are many non-intuitive edge cases that yield unexpected results:

console.log(+[]); //=> 0 console.log(+''); //=> 0 console.log(+' '); //=> 0 console.log(typeof NaN); //=> 'number'

This library offers a performant way to smooth out edge cases like these.

Usage

const isNumber = require('is-number');

See the tests for more examples.

true

isNumber(5e3); // true isNumber(0xff); // true isNumber(-1.1); // true isNumber(0); // true isNumber(1); // true isNumber(1.1); // true isNumber(10); // true isNumber(10.10); // true isNumber(100); // true isNumber('-1.1'); // true isNumber('0'); // true isNumber('012'); // true isNumber('0xff'); // true isNumber('1'); // true isNumber('1.1'); // true isNumber('10'); // true isNumber('10.10'); // true isNumber('100'); // true isNumber('5e3'); // true isNumber(parseInt('012')); // true isNumber(parseFloat('012')); // true

False

Everything else is false, as you would expect:

isNumber(Infinity); // false isNumber(NaN); // false isNumber(null); // false isNumber(undefined); // false isNumber(''); // false isNumber(' '); // false isNumber('foo'); // false isNumber([1]); // false isNumber([]); // false isNumber(function () {}); // false isNumber({}); // false

Release history

7.0.0

  • Refactor. Now uses .isFinite if it exists.
  • Performance is about the same as v6.0 when the value is a string or number. But it's now 3x-4x faster when the value is not a string or number.

6.0.0

  • Optimizations, thanks to @benaadams.

5.0.0

Breaking changes

  • removed support for instanceof Number and instanceof String

As with all benchmarks, take these with a grain of salt. See the benchmarks for more detail.
