This module lets you check if an object is a `Buffer` without using `Buffer.isBuffer` (which includes the whole [buffer](https://github.com/feross/buffer) module in [browserify](http://browserify.org/)). It's future-proof and works in node too! ## install ```bash npm install is-buffer ``` ## usage ```js var isBuffer = require('is-buffer') isBuffer(new Buffer(4)) // true isBuffer(undefined) // false isBuffer(null) // false isBuffer('') // false isBuffer(true) // false isBuffer(false) // false isBuffer(0) // false isBuffer(1) // false isBuffer(1.0) // false isBuffer('string') // false isBuffer({}) // false isBuffer(function foo () {}) // false ``` ## license MIT.
