implements TextEncoderCommon
import { type dom } from "";
const { TextEncoder } = dom;

TextEncoder takes a stream of code points as input and emits a stream of bytes. For a more scalable, non-native library, see StringView – a C-like representation of strings based on typed arrays.


encode(input?: string): Uint8Array

Returns the result of running UTF-8's encoder.

encodeInto(source: string, destination: Uint8Array): TextEncoderEncodeIntoResult

Runs the UTF-8 encoder on source, stores the result of that operation into destination, and returns the progress made as a dictionary whereby read is the number of converted code units of source and written is the number of bytes modified in destination.
