Using Base64 encoding in Angular 4
I want to send the username and password to the server using Base64 encoding.
I found that I can import the following module using npm:
npm install --save angular-base64
I have verified that following folder is created in my project foler: node_modules\angular-base64
In my component.js file I tried to use any of the following line to import the component:
It does not complain about the importing but when I try to use following line:
headers.append('Authorization', 'Basic ' + base64.encode('username:temppass'));
It says "Can not find base64".
You don't really need an external library for that purpose.
The WindowOrWorkerGlobalScope.btoa() method creates a base-64 encoded ASCII string from a String object in which each character in the string is treated as a byte of binary data.
Use the btoa() function to encode:
console.log(btoa("username:temppass")); // dXNlcm5hbWU6dGVtcHBhc3M=
