⚖️ Quantity Functions

This library aims to provide a set of functions and utilities for conversion between units of mass, volume, and energy.

At this early stage it is still missing many features and units (See Notice).

Please feel free to fork and raise a pull request to add functionailty you deem widely useful within this domain (See Contributions).

Table of Contents

🏁 Getting Started

The below examples are given in TypeScript, but should be easily adapted to JavaScript. TypeScript definitions are bundled with the package.

Installation

The library is available as an npm package. To install a package run:

npm install quantity-fns --save
# or with yarn 
yarn add quantity-fns

Usage

Parsing a quantity

import { parse, format } from "quantity-fns"
// Parsing
parse("10 meters") // === { unit: 'meters', quantity: 10, type: 'distance' }
parse("10 ml") // === { unit: 'ml', quantity: 10, type: 'volume' }
parse("10 kg") // === { unit: 'kg', quantity: 10, type: 'mass' }
parse("10 mi", {type: 'mass'}) // throws "mi is not a unit of mass"
parse("1,3 km", {locales: 'de-DE'}) //  === { unit: 'km', quantity: 1.3, type: 'distance' }
 
// Formatting
format(parse("1 km")) // === "1 km"
 
// Formatting with locale
format(parse("1.300,02 km", {locales: 'de-DE'})) // === "1,300.02 km"
format(parse("1,300.02 km"), {locales: 'de-DE'}) // === "1.300,02 km"

Converting mass (eg. kilos into grams)

import { convert as convertMass } from "quantity-fns/mass"
convertMass({
    unit: 'kg',
    quantity: 10,
    type: 'mass'
}, 'g') // === {unit: 'g', quantity: 10000}

Converting volume (eg. Millilitres to Litres)

import { convert as convertVolume } from "quantity-fns/volume"
convertVolume({
    unit: 'ml',
    quantity: 10,
    type: 'volume'
}, 'L') // === {unit: 'L', quantity: 10000}

Converting distance (eg. Miles to Kilometers)

import { convert as convertDistance } from "quantity-fns/distance"
convertDistance({
    unit: 'mi',
    quantity: 1,
    type: 'distance'
}, 'km') // === { unit: 'km', quantity: 1.609 }

Calculating mass of volume and density (eg. 1L of water)

import { volumeToMass } from "quantity-fns/volume"
import { DensityOf } from "quantity-fns/density";
volumeToMass({
    unit: 'ml',
    quantity: 100,
    type: 'volume'
}, DensityOf.Water /*, "g"*/) // === {quantity: 100, unit: "g", type: "mass"}

Convert energy (eg. Joules to Kilocalories)

import { convert as convertEnergy } from "quantity-fns/energy"
convertEnergy({
    unit: 'J',
    quantity: 100,
    type: 'energy'
}, 'kcal') // === { quantity: 0.0239, unit: 'kcal', type: 'energy' }

Convert density (eg. lb/ft3 -> kg/m3)

import { convert as convertDensity } from "quantity-fns/density"
convertDensity({
    unit: 'lb/ft3',
    quantity: 1,
    type: 'density'
}, 'kg/m3') // === { quantity: 16.0184, unit: 'kg/m3', type: 'density' }

🛠️ Building

The library is written with TypeScript, and uses the Mocha and chai frameworks. It has no dependencies save for the scant development dependencies.

The unit tests are using the Chai assertion framework.

# Clone the project using git 
git clone git@github.com:oparaskos/quantity-fns.git
cd quantity-fns
npm i # Install the dev dependencies 
# Run the tests using mocha, with ts-node 
npm run test
# Produce the `dist/` folder containing javascript 
npm run build

⚠️ Notice

At this early stage this library cannot be garunteed to be as accurate as needed for many use cases, there may exist flaws and issues inherent to any software project which are not tested against. For this reason libraries such as this one may not be suitable for mission critical applications such as medical devices.

If you do decide to use this library in such applications please be thorough in your testing.

However in the interest of developing this further you may wish to open a pull request against this library to test, prove and improve the accuracy of the results. This kind of contribution is greatly appreciated (See Contributions).
