framed-stream

Read/write stream messages prefixed 8, 16, 24 or 32 bit length.

npm i framed-stream

Usage

We have a server that handles connections like so:

const FramedStream = require('framed-stream')
const net = require('net')

const server = net.createServer().listen(3000)

server.on('connection', function (socket) {
  const stream = new FramedStream(socket)

  stream.on('data', (message) => console.log('client says:', message.toString()))
  stream.on('end', () => stream.end())
  stream.on('close', (message) => console.log('server stream is closed'))
})

Client does the same, also for example it sends two messages:

const client = net.connect(3000)
const stream = new FramedStream(client)

stream.on('data', (message) => console.log('server says:', message.toString()))
stream.on('end', () => stream.end())
stream.on('close', () => console.log('client stream is closed'))

stream.write('hello')
stream.write('world')
stream.end()

API

const stream = new FramedStream(rawStream, [options])

Make a new framed stream.

Available options:

{
  bits: 32
}

You can only set bits using the frameBits values documented below.

stream.rawStream

The underlying raw stream.

stream.frameBits

Indicates the frame bits (8, 16, 24, or 32).

stream.frameBytes

Indicates the frame bytes (1, 2, 3, or 4).

stream.maxMessageLength

Indicates the max message length (255, 65535, 16777215, or 4294967295).
