numscale.js

A Node.js module for converting numbers into pretty strings with suffixes to indicate scale (Kilo, Mega, Giga, etc.)

Examples:

>var ns = require('./numscale');
>var myThroughput = {value: 1000000000, powerOf: 10, maxLen: 5};
>ns.scale(myThroughput)
'1G'

>var myCapacity = {value: 1073741824, powerOf: 2, maxLen: 5};
>ns.scale(myCapacity)
'1G'

>var myCounter = {value: 654345443, powerOf: 10, maxLen: 6};
>ns.scale(myCounter)
'654.3M'

>var myMemory = {value: 43322466, powerOf: 2, maxLen: 7};
>ns.scale(myMemory)
'41.316M'

Usage:

The scale() method takes an object argument. The members of the argument object are as follows:

  • value (required) - the number to be scaled and formatted
  • powerOf (optional) - either 2 or 10: sets scaling factor (defaults to 10)
  • maxLen (optional) - maximum length of the string to be returned (default 20)
