    Node-core streams for userland

    This package is a mirror of the Streams2 and Streams3 implementations in Node-core.

    Full documentation may be found on the Node.js website.

    If you want to guarantee a stable streams base, regardless of what version of Node you, or the users of your libraries are using, use readable-stream only and avoid the "stream" module in Node-core, for background see this blogpost.

    As of version 2.0.0 readable-stream uses semantic versioning.

    Streams Working Group

    readable-stream is maintained by the Streams Working Group, which oversees the development and maintenance of the Streams API within Node.js. The responsibilities of the Streams Working Group include:

    • Addressing stream issues on the Node.js issue tracker.
    • Authoring and editing stream documentation within the Node.js project.
    • Reviewing changes to stream subclasses within the Node.js project.
    • Redirecting changes to streams from the Node.js project to this project.
    • Assisting in the implementation of stream providers within Node.js.
    • Recommending versions of readable-stream to be included in Node.js.
    • Messaging about the future of streams to give the community advance notice of changes.
