split2

Split2(matcher, mapper, options)

build status

Break up a stream and reassemble it so that each line is a chunk. split2 is inspired by @dominictarr split module, and it is totally API compatible with it. However, it is based on through2 by @rvagg and it is fully based on Stream3.

matcher may be a String, or a RegExp. Example, read every line in a file ...

  fs.createReadStream(file)
    .pipe(split2())
    .on('data', function (line) {
      //each chunk now is a separate line!
    })
 

split takes the same arguments as string.split except it defaults to '/\r?\n/', and the optional limit paremeter is ignored. String#split

split takes an optional options object on it's third argument, which is directly passed as a Transform option.

Additionally, the .maxLength option is implemented, which will make the split stream throw an error if the buffer size exceeds .maxLength.

Calling .destroy will make the stream emit close. Use this to perform cleanup logic

var splitFile = function(filename) {
  var file = fs.createReadStream(filename)
 
  return file
    .pipe(split2())
    .on('close', function() {
      // destroy the file stream in case the split stream was destroyed
      file.destroy()
    })
}
 
var stream = splitFile('my-file.txt')
 
stream.destroy() // will destroy the input file stream

split2 accepts a function which transforms each line.

fs.createReadStream(file)
  .pipe(split2(JSON.parse))
  .on('data', function (obj) {
    //each chunk now is a js object
  })

However, in @dominictarr split the mapper is wrapped in a try-catch, while here it is not: if your parsing logic can throw, wrap it yourself.
