Deal with vinyl file contents, regardless of whether it is Buffer/Stream

var through = require('through2');
var VinylBufferStream = require('vinyl-bufferstream');
 
function yourGulpPlugin() {
  var vinylBufferStream = new VinylBufferStream(function(buf, done) {
    syncOrAsyncFn(buf, done); 
  });
 
  return through.obj(function(file, enc, cb) {
    vinylBufferStream(file, function(err, contents) {
      if (err) {
        self.emit('error', err);
      } else {
        file.contents = contents;
        self.push(file);
      }
      cb();
    });
  });
}

Installation

Use npm.

npm install vinyl-bufferstream

API

var VinylBufferStream = require('vinyl-bufferstream');

vinylBufferStream = new VinylBufferStream(transformFunction)

(new operator is optional.)

transformFunction: Function
Return: Function

The argument must be a function taking a Buffer and a callback function as its first and second argument, which calls the callback function with passing Node-style callback arguments (error, result).

vinylBufferStream(file, callback)

file: Object (vinyl file object)
callback: Function

When the file.contents is a Buffer, it will call the transformFunction with passing file.contents to the first argument.

When the file.contents is a Stream, it will call the transformFunction with passing the buffered stream of file.contents to the first argument.

When the file.contents is a Stream, it won't call the transformFunction.

callback(err, contents)

error: Error or null
contents: Buffer or Stream

When the file.contents is a Buffer, contents will be a result that transformFunction produces.

When the file.contents is a Stream, contents will be a stream that emits a data transformFunction produces.

When the file.contents is null, contents will be null.

var gulp = require('gulp');
