time-window-stream

concatenate all data chunks that fall within a time window

time-window-stream

concatenate all the data chunks that fall within a time window

example

Every time there is a write on stdin, wait 1 second to buffer up more data and concatenate everything in that 1 second window together:

var timeWindow = require('time-window-stream');
var through = require('through');
 
var tw = timeWindow(1000);
process.stdin.pipe(tw).pipe(through(function (buf) {
    console.dir(buf.toString('utf8'));
}));

output:

$ (echo -n abc; sleep 0.5; echo -n def; sleep 2; echo -n hi; sleep 0.1; echo -n jkl) | node tw.js
'abcdef'
'hijkl'

'abc' and 'def' are only separated by 0.5 seconds, so they get put into the same chunk. The pause of 2 seconds breaks the chunk and then 'hi' gets concatenated to 'jkl' because only 0.1 seconds elapsed between them.

methods

var timeWindow = require('time-window-stream')

Create a new time window through stream tw that on a write will wait time milliseconds to concatenate more writes together in the same batch.

install

With npm do:

npm install time-window-stream
