    buffered-request build status

    Hack/patch for the Request Object that makes it buffered.

    It solves the pause/resume unbuffered behaviorin node <= 0.6.x related topic

    The patch adds a makeBuffered method to the request object (who is instanceof IncomingMessage) and doesn't break any functionality of the actual IncomingMessage Object. It still works well with pipes and data events.

    Take a look ad the test suite for some example.

    Installation

    ⚡ npm install buffered-request
    
    require('buffered-request')

    Syntax

    IncomingMessage.makeBuffered()

    Example

    var server = http.createServer(function (request, response) {
      request.makeBuffered() // ensure that you will never lose packets
      request.pause()
      setTimeout(function () {
        request.on('data', function (chunk) {
          // data event will be emitted for all previous buffered chunks
        })
        request.resume()
      }, 1000)
      ...
    }).listen(8080)
