64

High performance Base64 encoding and decoding for Node.js using SIMD (AVX2, AVX, SSE4.2, SSE4.1, SSSE3) acceleration. Uses Alfred Klomp's base64 library.

When compared with Base64 encoding/decoding via Node's Buffer object, expected performance gains are up to ~6x depending on length.

Due to the cost of making a shared library call, it is less suitable for very short Buffers, typically those less than ~300 bytes when encoding and less than ~150 bytes when decoding.

Pre-compiled binaries are provided for Node 6, 8 and 10 on the most common platforms.

Requirements

  • Node.js v6+
  • Linux, OS X or Windows
  • x86 or x64 CPU

Install

npm install 64

Usage

import { encode, decode } from '64';

const input = Buffer.from('The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy sleeping dog');

const encoded = encode(input); // VGhlIHF1aWNrIGJyb3duIGZveCBqdW1wZWQgb3ZlciB0aGUgbGF6eSBzbGVlcGluZyBkb2c=
const decoded = decode(encoded);

API

encode(input)

  • input is a Buffer containing the data to be Base64 encoded.

Returns a Buffer containing the Base64 encoded version of input.

A TypeError will be thrown if input is not a Buffer.

decode(encoded)

  • encoded is a Buffer containing Base64 encoded data.

Returns a Buffer containing the Base64 decoded version of encoded.

A TypeError will be thrown if encoded is not a Buffer.
