    set-blocking

    Build Status NPM version Coverage Status Standard Version

    set blocking stdio and stderr ensuring that terminal output does not truncate.

    const setBlocking = require('set-blocking')
    setBlocking(true)
    console.log(someLargeStringToOutput)

    Historical Context/Word of Warning

    This was created as a shim to address the bug discussed in node #6456. This bug crops up on newer versions of Node.js (0.12+), truncating terminal output.

    You should be mindful of the side-effects caused by using set-blocking:

    • if your module sets blocking to true, it will effect other modules consuming your library. In yargs we only call setBlocking(true) once we already know we are about to call process.exit(code).
    • this patch will not apply to subprocesses spawned with isTTY = true, this is the default spawn() behavior.
