I used the code here to do this. It's just an array of substitutions, so you can obviously edit it if it doesn't meet your requirements. Clearly it's a lot less powerful than iconv, but it may be sufficient (and it runs on Windows too :).

Your best bet will probably be using the iconv module (https://
github.com/bnoordhuis/node-iconv) with the //TRANSLIT option.
