decompress a raw DEFLATE buffer or stream in node and the browser
It uses a subset of pako in the browser which is smaller than using the zlib-browserify module.
npm install inflate-raw
var inflateRaw =var inflateRawStream =someCompressedStreamvar inflateRawWorker =
In the browser, the main
inflate-raw entry point is blocking, so if you inflate a very large buffer the browser may hang. You can use
inflate-raw/worker instead which has the same API, but offloads the inflating to a Web Worker. Note that you cannot use
compressedBuffer while inflation is in progress, because it is moved into the worker rather than copied. If you need to use the
compressedBuffer, manually copy it first. After inflation, the
compressedBuffer is moved back to the main thread, so you can use it again.
inflate-raw/stream API is also synchronous but if the data comes streaming in in small chunks it will not noticeably lag the browser. It exposes a node-style stream transform interface.
