node-mock-stdin

Build Status Coverage Status

Provide a mock readable stream, useful for testing interactive CLI applications.

Maybe simple mocks for other standard files wouldn't be a terrible idea, if anyone feels like those are needed. Patches welcome.

API


Module#stdin()

example

require('mock-stdin').stdin();

Replaces the existing process.stdin value with a mock object exposing a send method (a MockSTDIN instance). This allows APIs like process.openStdin() or process.stdin.on() to operate on a mock instance.

note: Event listeners from the original process.stdin instance are not added to the mock instance. Installation of the mock should occur before any event listeners are registered.

return value: A MockSTDIN instance


MockSTDIN#send(data)

example

var stdin = require('mock-stdin').stdin();
stdin.send("Some text");
stdin.send(Buffer("Some text", "Some optional encoding"));
stdin.send([
  "Array of lines",
  "  which are joined with a linefeed."
]);
 
// sending a null will trigger EOF and dispatch an 'end' event.
stdin.send(null);

Queue up data to be read by the stream. Results in data (and possibly end) events being dispatched.

parameters

  • data: A String, Buffer, Array<String>, or null. The data parameter will result in the default encoding if specified as a string or array of strings.

return value: The MockSTDIN instance, for chaining.


MockSTDIN#end()

example

var stdin = require('mock-stdin').stdin();
stdin.end();

Alias for MockSTDIN#send(null). Results in dispatching an end event.

return value: The MockSTDIN instance, for chaining.
