Like string_decoder but for arrays

Array Decoder

This class can be used to stream arrays of data when chunks may end with partial elements. Similar to string decoder but for arrays.


npm install array_decoder


var ArrayDecoder = require('array_decoder').ArrayDecoder
var decoder = new ArrayDecoder
// Outputs: ['abc', 'def']
console.log(decoder.write(['abc', 'def', 'gh']))
// Outputs: ['ghi', 'jkl']
console.log(decoder.write(['i', 'jkl', 'mn']))
// Outputs: ['mnl']
console.log(decoder.write(['l'], true))

new ArrayDecoder([format])

Output can be string or buffer. If not specified it will be as input.

write(array, complete)

array - Array of strings, buffers or array of arrays of string or buffers. complete - Set to true for last chunk.
