Readme

node-htmlencode
A wrapped version of http://www.strictly-software.com/htmlencode library -- only two changes to the original:
  1. Renamed global Encoder object to module.exports so it can be used as a Node module.
  2. Fixed leaking global variable arr in htmlDecode method

Usage

In addition to the very minor changes described above, the library is wrapped in a function to allow you to require just the individual method(s) you want.
var htmlencode = require('htmlencode');
htmlencode.htmlEncode('<h1>Welcome</h1>');
// <h1>Welcome</h1>

works the same as
var htmlEncode = require('htmlencode').htmlEncode;
htmlEncode('<h1>Welcome</h1>');
// <h1>Welcome</h1>

If you want to change to using numeric HTML entities, you'll still want to do something like this:
var htmlencode = require('htmlencode');
htmlencode.EncodeType = 'numerical'; // Don't blame me. I didn't name it.
htmlencode.htmlEncode('<h1>Welcome</h1>');
// <h1>Welcome</h1>

Also provided is module.exports.Encoder, the wrapper class, so you can do something like this if you so choose:
var htmlencode = require('htmlencode');
var widget = new htmlencode.Encoder('numerical');
widget.htmlEncode('<h1>Welcome</h1>');
// <h1>Welcome</h1>
