pull-handshake

easily create a duplex protocol that starts with a handshake

pull-handshake

Create handshakes for binary protocols with pull streams.

Example

var stream = handshake()
var shake = stream.handshake
 
// Pull some amount of data out of the stream 
shake.read(32, function (err, data) {
 
  // Write a response... 
  shake.write(new Buffer('hello there'))
 
  shake.read(32, function (err, data) {
    // Get a confirmation, 
    // and then attach the application 
    var stream = createApplicationStream()
 
    pull(stream, shake.rest(), stream)
    // shake.rest() returns a duplex binary stream. 
  })
})
 
 
// shake is itself a duplex pull-stream. 
pull(shake, stream, shake)

Type: Object
Default: {timeout: 5e3}

The allowed duration for the handshake to take place.

Type: Function
Default: function noop () {}

This will be called when the handshake completes, or fails. In the case of failure it is called with an error.
