Parsing octet-data from stream/buffer can be painful, this is what fluent-stream aiming for.
var fluent =fluent// pop 2 bytes// async pop// unpredictable length// remaining data will be emited(Stream)// write or pipe data to itf
$ npm install fluent-stream
var FluentStream =
Return a fluent-stream object, it is a duplex stream
Pop n length buffer and exec callback when fluent received enough bytes(>= nbytes)
Discard those data if callback not exists
If callback has more than 1 params, it will be treat as a async callback, you must call done(2nd param) to finish this pop.
If callback return a Number(sync: return n, async: done(n)), it indicate that next pop action will pop n bytes. This is very useful in handling unpredictable length buffer.
There is a 'stash' prop in fluent, it is a Object, all stashed buffers will be stored in it.
Pop buffer and stash it in 'stash' keyed 'stashName'.
Apply stash, you can accese stashed buffers in it, such as
There are a dozen of methods can pre-parse buffer to corresponding types, such as int, float, double
Details see here Node Buffer Doc
FluentStream is duplex stream implemented, you can pipe readable stream to it and pipe it to other writable stream.
Fluent will pop buffer of specified length then emit remaining buffer.
