Installation

The global namespace for save-as-file is saveAsFile:

const json = JSON.stringify({ping: true});
const file = new File([json], {type: 'application/json'});
saveAsFile(file, 'test.json');

Usage


ES6

Save a File to disk:

import saveFile from 'save-as-file';
const json = JSON.stringify({ping: true});
const file = new File([json], {type: 'application/json'});
saveFile(file, 'test.json');

NOTE: We create a temporary data uri for File/Blob objects which we revoke after 1 minute. If you need to download a large file which may take longer than 1 minute to download, use the 3rd argument to increase this timeout:

import saveFile from 'save-as-file';
const json = JSON.stringify({ping: true});
const file = new File([json], {type: 'application/json'});
saveFile(file, 'test.json', 1000 * 60 * 10 /* 10 mins */);

CommonJS

Save a File to disk:

const saveFile = require('save-as-file');
const json = JSON.stringify({ping: true});
const file = new File([json], {type: 'application/json'});
saveFile(file, 'test.json');

Browser Support
