    parse-ply

    A streaming PLY parser written in JavaScript.

    Usages

    First, install using npm:

    npm install parse-ply
    

    Then you can create a stream using require. For example, here is some code that parses a PLY file from stdin and dumps the result to stdout:

    require("parse-ply")(process.stdin, function(ply) {
      console.log(ply);
    });
    

    The properties within the file are all encoded as appropriate typed arrays.

    require("parse-ply")(stream, cb)

    This creates a streaming PLY parser. To use it, pipe in a stream containing your mesh. When it is done, it will emit a data event that has the parsed PLY file as the main argument.

    • stream is a stream object
    • cb(err, data) is callback that is executed once the PLY is fully parsed
