An extension to request that creates a balancing URL request stream.
An extension of request that takes a set of balancing URL routes and creates a suitable request object based upon a path. Its primary role is as a remote interface dependency of ol-proxy.
To create an instance of the request generator, you must first instantiate it by passing in a set of routes and also an optional route type object that is used to perform the balancing computation.
var balancingRequest = require('balancing-request'); var routes = [ 'http://example.com', 'http://example.org' ]; var streamGenerator = balancingRequest(routes); var stream = streamGenerator('/sample.jpg');
By default, Balancing Request uses a route type that randomises the URL but you can specify a round robin (balancingUrl.routeTypes.ROUND_ROBIN) route type or create your own custom route type and pass it in as the second parameter when creating your stream generator.
