node package manager

streamline-streams

Warning: this module is the original stream API for streamline.js. It is now superseeded by the ez-streams package which provide a much richer API.

You can nevertheless use this module directly if you are only interested by the low level wrappers around node streams.

This module provides:

  • a generic ReadableStream wrapper with an asynchronous stream.read(_[, len]) method.
  • a generic WritableStream wrapper with an asynchronous stream.write(_, buf[, encoding]) method.
  • wrappers for HTTP and TCP request and response objects (client and server).

See the API reference for details.
