ternary-stream

Fork stream based on passed condition, and collect down-stream

ternary-stream

A ternary stream: conditionally control the flow of stream data

1: Conditionally filter content

Condition

if the condition returns truthy, data is piped to the child stream

var ternaryStream = require('ternary-stream');
 
var condition = function (data) {
  return true;
};
 
process.stdin
  .pipe(ternaryStream(condition, process.stdout))
  .pipe(fs.createWriteStream('./out.txt'));
});

Data will conditionally go to stdout, and always go to the file

2: Ternary stream

Ternary

var ternaryStream = require('ternary-stream');
var through2 = require('through2');
 
var count = 0;
var condition = function (data) {
  count++;
  return count % 2;
};
 
process.stdin
  .pipe(ternaryStream(condition, fs.createWriteStream('./truthy.txt'), fs.createWriteStream('./falsey.txt')))
  .pipe(process.stdout);
});

Data will either go to truthy.txt (if condition is true) or falsey.txt (if condition is false) and will always go to stdout

ternary-stream will pipe data to stream whenever condition is truthy.

If condition is falsey and elseStream is passed, data will pipe to elseStream.

After data is piped to stream or elseStream or neither, data is piped down-stream.

Type: function: takes in stream data and returns boolean

function (data) {
    return true; // or false 
}

Stream for ternary-stream to pipe data into when condition is truthy.

Optional, Stream for ternary-stream to pipe data into when condition is falsey.
