LDJSONStream

Parse a binary stream of stringified new line separated JSON objects and write to output. Implements a Transform stream.

Features:

  • LDJSON support
  • NDJSON support
  • simple and dependency free
  • easy to audit

Example

A simple filter that logs all objects that have the name baz:

const Writable = require('stream').Writable;
const LDJSONStream = require('ld-jsonstream');
 
var ls = new LDJSONStream({ objectMode: true });
 
ls.pipe(new Writable({
  objectMode: true,
  write: function(obj, encoding, cb) {
    if (obj.name === 'baz') {
      console.log(obj);
    }
    cb();
  }
}));
 
ls.write('{ "name" : "bar" }\n{ "name" : "baz" }\n');

A more practical use case would be to read from stdin with something like: process.stdin.pipe(ls).

Installation

$ npm install ld-jsonstream

API

LDJSONStream([opts])

  • [opts] {Object} object containing optional parameters

opts:

  • maxDocLength {Number, default 16777216} maximum JSON document size in bytes
  • maxDocs {Number, default infinite} maximum number of documents to receive
  • maxBytes {Number, default infinite} maximum number of bytes to receive
  • flush {Boolean, default true} whether to flush any remaining data on writer end
  • debug {Boolean, default false} whether to do extra console logging or not
  • hide {Boolean, default false} whether to suppress errors or not (used in tests)
  • readableObjectMode {Boolean, default false} Sets objectMode for the readable side of the stream. Note: the writable side of the stream can never be in object mode. If you have such a case, you don't need this module.
  • objectMode {Boolean, default false} alias for readableObjectMode

events:

  • "data" {Object} emits one object at a time
  • "end" stream end

this.buffer

  • {Buffer} buffer, can be used to manually flush any remaining bytes

this.bytesRead

  • {Number} total number of bytes read

Tests

$ npm test
