filo-buffer is a nodejs module that provides a fixed size text buffer implementation.
The recommended way is through the excellent NPM:
$ npm install filo-buffer
- Create a small buffer with a fixed size of 5 characters :
var b = new FiloBuffer(5); // instanciate the FiloBuffer class
- Put some data in it :
b.put('abc'); b.toString(); // returns the buffer content => 'abc'
- Same with more data :
var b = new FiloBuffer(5); b.put('abcdefg'); b.toString(); // => 'cdefg'
As an example, I use it as an alternative of log files in projects. A circular memory buffer limited to 4Kb is enough and no need to rotate, purge generated logs.
