ASCII to Data URI Converter

This Convert ASCII to Data URI tool facilitates the conversion of ASCII text into a Data URI, allowing users to create Data URIs directly from their text content.

How to Use

  1. Input ASCII Text: Enter the ASCII text you want to convert into the provided textarea.
  2. Click “Convert to Data URI”: Initiate the conversion process by clicking the button.
  3. View Data URI Output: The generated Data URI will be displayed in the output textarea below.


The converter utilizes the btoa() function, which is a built-in JavaScript function that encodes ASCII text into Base64 format. It then constructs a Data URI by appending the Base64-encoded text to the appropriate data scheme (data:text/plain;base64,). When the user clicks the conversion button, the function processes the input ASCII text, encodes it into Base64, constructs the Data URI, and displays it in the output textarea.


  • Direct Data URI Creation: Allows users to generate Data URIs directly from their ASCII text content, eliminating the need for external tools or manual encoding.
  • Versatility: Supports various types of ASCII text content, including plain text, code snippets, configuration files, and more.
  • Integration: Enables seamless integration of ASCII text into web applications, emails, documents, and other contexts that accept Data URIs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a Data URI? A: A Data URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) is a URI scheme that allows data to be embedded directly into a web page or other document. It typically consists of a data type specifier (data:), followed by a MIME type, and the data itself.

Q: How can I use the generated Data URI? A: The generated Data URI can be used in various contexts where URLs are accepted, such as HTML documents, CSS files, JavaScript code, and more. It allows you to embed text content directly into your web pages, emails, or other documents without hosting the content externally.

Q: Are there any limitations to Data URIs? A: Data URIs have size limitations imposed by browsers, which may affect performance and loading times if used excessively or for large data sets. Additionally, some older browsers may not fully support Data URIs or have limitations on the types of content they can handle.

Q: Can I convert binary data to Data URI using this tool? A: No, this tool is specifically designed to convert ASCII text to Data URI. To convert binary data to Data URI, you would need to use a different approach, such as encoding the binary data into Base64 format and constructing the Data URI manually.


The ASCII to Data URI Converter provides a convenient solution for generating Data URIs from ASCII text content, offering simplicity, versatility, and integration capabilities. Whether you’re embedding text content into web pages, sharing code snippets, or integrating configuration data into your applications, this tool streamlines the process of creating Data URIs.
