What would you like to do?
calculate memory size of javascript object, it is not a accurate value!
function memorySizeOf(obj) {
var bytes = 0;
function sizeOf(obj) {
if(obj !== null && obj !== undefined) {
switch(typeof obj) {
case 'number':
bytes += 8;
break;
case 'string':
bytes += obj.length * 2;
break;
case 'boolean':
bytes += 4;
break;
case 'object':
var objClass = Object.prototype.toString.call(obj).slice(8, -1);
if(objClass === 'Object' || objClass === 'Array') {
for(var key in obj) {
if(!obj.hasOwnProperty(key)) continue;
sizeOf(obj[key]);
}
} else bytes += obj.toString().length * 2;
break;
}
}
return bytes;
};
function formatByteSize(bytes) {
if(bytes < 1024) return bytes + " bytes";
else if(bytes < 1048576) return(bytes / 1024).toFixed(3) + " KiB";
else if(bytes < 1073741824) return(bytes / 1048576).toFixed(3) + " MiB";
else return(bytes / 1073741824).toFixed(3) + " GiB";
};
return formatByteSize(sizeOf(obj));
};

I think it's better for not calculate keys that refer to an object, as it can be a circular object or that keys was only referring to another object value.

it should be bytes += sizeOf(obj[key]) + sizeOf(key); on line 21

no
{ "login":"аааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааа", "password":"аааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааааа" }

try to get size of this object

with your edit size = ~1.2kb
but real size is ~300-400bytes

it should be:

sizeOf(key);
if(!obj.hasOwnProperty(key)) continue;
sizeOf(obj[key]); 

on lines 20,21.

or

if (objClass != 'Array'){
  bytes += 2 * key.length;
}

why boolean is 4 bytes? Maybe you have spec link?

@akleandrov

A boolean is actually 1 byte. But alignment may cause 4 bytes to be used on a 32-bit platform (or 8 bytes on a 64-bit platform). This is an old trick that comes from the observation that allocated memory takes up at least 4 or 8 bytes, and are aligned in such a way that the least significant bit or three will be zero.

Javascript engines (for example V8) are implemented using C++. You can find documentation about the size of boolean values in C++ spec. [1]

The function sizeOf doesn't work with Uint8Array and other standard types of arrays.
