# ABSTRACT: Utilities for Javascript string literal representation



=encoding UTF-8

=head1 NAME

String::JS - Utilities for Javascript string literal representation

=head1 VERSION

This document describes version 0.03 of String::JS (from Perl distribution String-JS), released on 2016-03-11.


=head2 encode_js_string($str[, $mode]) => STR

Encode Perl string C<$str> to its JavaScript literal representation using double
quotes (C<">). This is currently implemented using JSON encoding.

If C<$mode> is set to 1, will produce literal representation using single quotes
(C<'>) instead.

If C<$mode> is set to 2, will produce single-quoted JS string to be put inside a
double-quoted JS string literal, useful for producing for example jQuery
expression like:

 $("h2.contains('this is JS string inside another JS string')")

Will die on failure.

=head2 decode_js_string($js_str) => STR

Given a JavaScript string literal representation in C<$js_str>, decode to get
the value.

Currently implemented using JSON decoding of stringified C<$js_str>.

Currently does not support JavaScript string representation that uses single
quotes (C<'>).

Will die on failure.
