Prisma Stream Client Extension (Cursor-based Implementation)


  • Clean API (for await)
  • Fully typed
  • Minimal implementation. The source itself is well below 100 LOCs.

Installation & Activation

npm install prisma-cursorstream

Then, extend your prisma client like this:

import { PrismaClient } from "@prisma/client";
import cursorStream from "prisma-cursorstream";

const db = new PrismaClient().$extends(cursorStream);
Using CommonJS `require`?

CommonJS require

const cursorStream = require("prisma-cursorstream").default;

const db = new PrismaClient().$extends(cursorStream);

Refer to #1.


const stream ={
  // Your usual findMany args
  select: {
    id: true,
    title: true,
  where: {
    published: true,
for await (const post of stream) {
  console.log(post); // {id: 1, title: 'Hello!'}

Advanced API

The following options (passed as a second argument) provide additional controls over the streaming process.

  • Batch size: batchSize specifies how many rows are fetched each batch. Defaults to 100
  • Pre-fill size: Since the streaming happens asynchronously, it may be useful to fetch more rows well before current batch is completely consumed. prefill specifies the internal highWaterMark of the Readable stream. Defaults to double the batch size (usually 200).
  • Batch transformation: Sometimes you may need to pre-process the resulting rows in batches before they are consumed. This is where the batchTransformer comes in. If provided, it receives an array of the last fetched batch of rows, can operate on them asynchronously, and then return an array of transformed rows to be consumed instead. Types are properly handled.
const stream =
    where: {
      published: true,
    batchSize: 42, // batches of 42 posts at a time
    prefill: 69, // prefetch up to 69+ posts
    async batchTransformer(posts) {
      const translations = await translate( => p.title));
      return, i) => ({
        translatedTitle: translations[i],

for await (const translatedPost of stream) {
  console.log(translatedPost); // {..., translatedTitle: "مرحبا!"}
