node-streamin Build Status

Provide a better streaming api for your module.

Usage

var streamin = require('streamin');
 
// `io` can be a path to a file, a url, or a stream 
var stream = streamin(io);

That's the gist of it. With this you can give your code a more conveniet API by allowing streams to be passed into your function and also consider the common use cases of files and urls as inputs or outputs.

API

streamin(io, [requestOptions])

If io is a path to a file, it will return a stream that points to a local file. If it's a url, a stream from a remote request will be returned. If it detects that io is already a stream, it returns it. Will also decompress a gzip/deflate compressed http stream.

requestOptions can be a hash of options passed to request.

Install

npm install streamin
