A set of Node.js streams to process data in chunks

  1. LineCounter
  2. SeparatorChunker
  3. SizeChunker
  4. GzipChunker
  5. S3MultipartUploader

LineCounter

Simple transform stream which counts lines (\n is a separator) and emit data chunks contains exactly specified number of them.

Configuration

new LineCounter({
    numLines: 1,        // number of lines in a single output chunk. 1 is default
    flushTail: false    // on stream end, flush or not remaining buffer. false is default
});

SeparatorChunker

Split incoming data into chunks based on specified separator. After each separator found data chunk is emitted. By default separator sequence is set to \n, so it is equals to LineCounter with numLines: 1

Configuration

new SeparatorChunker({
    separator: '\n', // separator sequence
    flushTail: false // on stream end, flush or not remaining buffer. false is default
});

SizeChunker

Split streams into chunks having exactly specified number of bytes. It is object mode stream! Each data chunk is an object with the following fields:

  • id: number of chunk (starts from 0)
  • data: Buffer with data

SizeChunker has 2 additional events:

  • chunkStart: emitted on each chunk start.
  • chunkEnd: emitted on each chunk finish.

Both event handlers must accept two arguments:

  • id: number of chunk
  • done: callback function, must be called then processing is completed

If some tail data is not fit fully into specified chunk size, it can be emitted at the end if flushTail flag is set.

Configuration

new SizeChunker({
    chunkSize: 1024 // must be a number greater than zero.
    flushTail: true // flush or not remainder of an incoming stream. Defaults to false
});

Example

var input = fs.createReadStream('./input'),
    chunker = new SizeChunker({
        chunkSize: 1024
    }),
    output;

chunker.on('chunkStart', function(id, done) {
    output = fs.createWriteStream('./output-' + id);
    done();
});

chunker.on('chunkEnd', function(id, done) {
    output.end();
    done();
});

chunker.on('data', function(chunk) {
    output.write(chunk.data);
});

input.pipe(chunker);
