pipemaster

Simple tool to wrap your functions to work as streams. Functions can be both sync and async.

Installation

npm install pipemaster

Usage

var FuncWrapper = require('pipemaster').FuncWrapper,
    streamFunc;

function asyncExample(x, callback) {
   callback(null, x * x); // first argument is an optional error.
}

streamFunc = new FuncWrapper(asyncExample);

streamFunc.write(2);  // streamFunc emits '4'
streamFunc.write(6);  // streamFunc emits '36'

Sync functions also supported:

var FuncWrapper = require('pipemaster').FuncWrapper,
    streamFunc;

function syncExample(x) {
   return 2 * x;
}

streamFunc = new FuncWrapper(syncExample, false); // 'false' is a flag for sync function

streamFunc.write(2);  // streamFunc emits '4'
streamFunc.write(6);  // streamFunc emits '12'

Filtering stream

Based on FuncWrapper, it takes sync or async function that returns true or false, and emits data event only when function returns true. Filtering functions also can be both sync and async ones.

var StreamFilter = require('pipemaster').StreamFilter,
    streamFunc;
function filterAsync(item, callback) {
    callback(null, item === 4);
}

streamFunc = new StreamFilter(filterAsync, true);

streamFunc.write(1);
streamFunc.write(4);
streamFunc.write(2);

// streamFunc emits only '4'
