Readme

format-price
Build Status
Simple utility to deal with formatting and parsing price. When asking a user to input a price, you should expect just about anything:
US$ 3.900,90-
-£5,016.43
-$8,202.97
100,000,000.90
100.000.000,99
19,95 €
€ 19.99
$1,-
So unless we restrict the user, we have to deal with this.

install

npm install format-price

usage

var Price = require('format-price');

var amount = Price.parse('US$ 3.900,90-');
// =>  -3900.90

methods

parse

This is a RegExp based price parser, and it should be able to deal with most (western) number formatting, as provided by Intl.NumberFormat. See the examples in the introduction.

format

Format a number according to locale and currency:
Price.format( 'fr-FR', 'EUR', 19.99 );
// => 19,99 €

This is really just a small wrapper around Intl.NumberFormat provided for symetry and shorter code.
