methods

var ent = require('ent');
var encode = require('ent/encode');

encode(str, opts={})

Escape unsafe characters in

str
with html entities.

By default, entities are encoded with numeric decimal codes.

If

opts.numeric
is false or
opts.named
is true, encoding will used named codes like
π
.

If

opts.special
is set to an Object, the key names will be forced to be encoded (defaults to forcing:
<>'"&
). For example:
console.log(encode('hello', { special: { l: true } }));
hello

decode(str)

Convert html entities in

str
back to raw text.

credits

HTML entity tables are from the official

entities.json
file for the whatwg HTML specification.
