Node.js transform stream that performs text based search and replacements. It performs correctly over chunk boundaries, and is efficient when performing multiple search / replacements over a stream of text.
npm install replacer
Let's say we have the following text file:
// story.txtThe cow ate the pig.The cow ate the hen.The cow ate the horse.
To replace all occurrences of 'cow' with 'dog' we could do this:
var fs = ;var path = ;var Replacer = ;var filePath = path;fs;
This will print:
The dog ate the pig.The dog ate the hen.The dog ate the horse.
To perform multiple replacements:
var replacements =search: 'cow' replace: 'dog'search: 'pig' replace: 'fox'search: 'hen' replace: 'hog';fs;
This would print:
The dog ate the fox.The dog ate the hog.The dog ate the horse.
Replacer was insipired by replacestream.
