Usage

var utils = require('utility');

// md5 hash
utils.md5('@Python发烧友'); // '1369e7668bc600f0d90c06f5e395d7a9'
utils.md5(new Buffer('')); // 'd41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e'
// md5 hase output base64
utils.md5('苏千', 'base64'); // 'X3M8R8WKB31hJXECstREgQ=='

// Object md5 hash
utils.md5({foo: 'bar', bar: 'foo'}).should.equal(utils.md5({bar: 'foo', foo: 'bar'}));

// hmac
// hmac-sha1 with base64 output encoding
utils.hmac('sha1', 'I am a key', 'hello world'); // 'pO6J0LKDxRRkvSECSEdxwKx84L0='

// base64 encode
utils.base64encode('你好¥'); // '5L2g5aW977+l'
utils.base64decode('5L2g5aW977+l') // '你好¥'

// urlsafe base64 encode
utils.base64encode('你好¥', true); // '5L2g5aW977-l'
utils.base64decode('5L2g5aW977-l', true); // '你好¥'

// empty function
process.nextTick(utils.noop);
function foo(callback) {
  callback = callback || utils.noop;
}

// html escape
utils.escape('<script/>"& &amp;'); // '&lt;script/&gt;&quot;&amp; &amp;'

// Safe encodeURIComponent and decodeURIComponent
utils.decodeURIComponent(utils.encodeURIComponent('你好, nodejs')).should.equal('你好, nodejs');

// get first ip
[WARNNING] getIP() remove, PLEASE use `https://github.com/fengmk2/address` module instead

// get a function parameter's names
utils.getParamNames(function (key1, key2) {}); // ['key1', 'key2']

// get a random string, default length is 16
utils.randomString(32, '1234567890'); //18774480824014856763726145106142

// check if object has this property
utils.has({hello: 'world'}, 'hello'); //true

Date utils

// accessLogDate
utils.accessLogDate(); // '16/Apr/2013:16:40:09 +0800'

// logDate,
// 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss.SSS' format date string
utils.logDate(); // '2013-04-17 14:43:02.674'
utils.YYYYMMDDHHmmssSSS(); // '2013-04-17 14:43:02.674'

// 'YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss' format date string
utils.YYYYMMDDHHmmss(); // '2013-04-17 14:43:02'

// 'YYYY-MM-DD' format date string
utils.YYYYMMDD(); // '2013-04-17'

// datestruct
utils.datestruct(); // { YYYYMMDD: 20130416, H: 8 }

// Unix's timestamp
utils.timestamp(); // 1378153226

// Parse timestamp
// seconds
utils.timestamp(1385091596); // Fri Nov 22 2013 11:39:56 GMT+0800 (CST)
// millseconds
utils.timestamp(1385091596000); // Fri Nov 22 2013 11:39:56 GMT+0800 (CST)

Number utils

// Detect a number string can safe convert to Javascript Number.: `-9007199254740991 ~ 9007199254740991`
utils.isSafeNumberString('9007199254740991'); // true
utils.isSafeNumberString('9007199254740993'); // false

// Convert string to number safe:
utils.toSafeNumber('9007199254740991'); // 9007199254740991
utils.toSafeNumber('9007199254740993'); // '9007199254740993'

Timers

utils.setImmediate(function () {
  console.log('hi');
});

map

Create a real map in javascript.

var map = utils.map({a: 1});

// should.not.exist(map.constractor);
// should.not.exist(map.__proto__);
// should.not.exist(map.toString);
// should not exist any property

console.log(map); // {a: 1}
