(Node.js) Read/Write JSON with Binary Data such as JPEG Files

Demonstrates how binary files could be stored in JSON in base64 format. Creates JSON containing the contents of a JPG file, and then reads the JSON to extract the JPEG image.

Install Chilkat for Node.js and Electron using npm at

Chilkat npm packages for Node.js
