filesize.js

filesize.js provides a simple way to get a human readable file size string from a number (float or integer) or string.

Optional settings

filesize() accepts an optional descriptor Object as a second argument, so you can customize the output.

(boolean) Enables bit sizes, default is false

unix

(boolean) Enables unix style human readable output, e.g ls -lh, default is false

base

(number) Number base, default is 10

round

(number) Decimal place, default is 2

spacer

(string) Character between the result and suffix, default is " "

suffixes

(object) Dictionary of SI suffixes to replace for localization, defaults to english if no match is found

Examples

filesize(500);                         // "500 B"
filesize(500, {bits: true});           // "4.00 kb"
filesize(265318);                      // "265.32 kB"
filesize(265318, {base: 2});           // "259.10 kB"
filesize(265318, {base: 2, round: 1}); // "259.1 kB"
filesize(1, {suffixes: {B: "Б"}});     // "1 Б"
