Binary data and blob


A blob has its size and MIME type just like a file has. Blob data is stored in the memory or filesystem depending on the browser and blob size. A blob can be used like a file wherever we use files. Most APIs for working with blobs are asynchronous. Content of a blob can be read as ArrayBuffer and therefore it makes blobs very handy to store binary data.

A blob can be created using Blob class. In the above code we saw how we can insert data to a blob. We can read data from a blob using FileReader Class. As we have file: Similarly we have blob: We can retrieve remote files using AJAX and and store the file data inside a blob. We can get the blob content in an ArrayBuffer and then analyze the ArrayBuffer as binary data.

This can be done using FileReader. A File object in JavaScript references an actual file in the local filesystem. This File object inherits all properties and methods from the Blob class. Although the File objects and Blob objects are different, they expose same methods and properties. Blobs are very useful while working with binary remote files. A blob can be very large i. They can be created dynamically and using blob URLs they can be used as files. You can use them in many different ways to make them more useful.

How to delete a blob manually. I have created a blob that holds a large chunk of data, i want to delete it once my work is done. This can be done using FileReader.
