Continously reads in JSON and outputs Javascript objects.

node-jstream

Continuously reads in JSON and outputs Javascript objects. Meant to be used with keep-alive connections that send back JSON on updates.

Usage

var JStream = require('jstream');
var request = require('request');
 
request('http://api.myhost.com/updates.json')
  .pipe(new JStream()).on('data', function(obj) {
    console.log('new js object');
    console.log(obj);
  });

API

Creates an instance of JStream. Inherits from Stream. Can be written to and emits data events with Javascript objects.

path can be an array of property names, RegExp's, booleans, and/or functions. Objects that match will be emitted in data events. Passing no path means emitting whole Javascript objects as they come in. For example, given the path ['results', true, 'name'] and the following JSON gets written into JStream

{ "results": [
  {"seq":99230
  ,"id":"newsemitter"
  ,"changes":[{"rev":"5-aca7782ab6beeaef30c36b888f817d2e"}]}
, {"seq":99235
  ,"id":"chain-tiny"
  ,"changes":[{"rev":"19-82224279a743d2744f10d52697cdaea9"}]}
, {"seq":99238
  ,"id":"Hanzi"
  ,"changes":[{"rev":"4-5ed20f975bd563ae5d1c8c1d574fe24c"}],"deleted":true}
] }

JStream will emit newsemitter, chain-tiny, and Hanzi in its data event.
