hyperstream

stream html into html at a css selector

example

var hyperstream = require('hyperstream');
var fs = require('fs');
 
var hs = hyperstream({
    '#a': fs.createReadStream(__dirname + '/a.html'),
    '#b': fs.createReadStream(__dirname + '/b.html')
});
var rs = fs.createReadStream(__dirname + '/index.html');
rs.pipe(hs).pipe(process.stdout);
$ node example/hs.js
<html>
  <body>
    <div id="a"><h1>a!!!</h1></div>
    <div id="b"><b>bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb</b></div>
  </body>
</html>

methods

var hyperstream = require('hyperstream')

Return a duplex stream that takes an html stream as input and produces an html stream as output, inserting the streams given by streamMap at the css selector keys.

If streamMap values are strings or functions, update the contents at the css selector key with their contents directly without using a stream.

If streamMap values are non-stream objects, iterate over the keys and set attributes for each key.

These attributes are special. Each attribute can be a string, buffer, or stream:

  • _html - set the inner content as raw html
  • _text - set the inner content as text encoded as html entities
  • _append, _appendText - add text to the end of the inner content encoded as html entities
  • _appendHtml - add raw html to the end of the inner content
  • _prepend, _prependText - add text to the beginning of the inner content encoded as html entities
  • _prependHtml - add raw html to the beginning of the inner context

For example, to set raw html into the inner content with the _html attribute, do:

hyperstream({
    '#content': {
        _html: stream,
        'data-start': 'cats!',
        'data-end': 'cats!\ufff'
    }
})

You can also specify string operations for properties with an object instead of a string. The object can have these properties:

  • append
  • prepend

Object properties are particularly handy for adding classes:

hyperstream({
    '.row': {
        class: { append: ' active' }
    }
})

which turns:

<div class="row"><b>woo</b></div>

into:

<div class="row active"><b>woo</b></div>
