This is a patched
vinyl-source-stream (thanks his author for original work). Original module does not work for me too good and author does not anwser in issues.
Our previous example, browserify, has a streaming API for its output bundles
which you can use directly. This module is just a bridge that makes it
simple to use conventional text streams such as this in combination with gulp.
Here's an example of using
browserify, compared to
var source =var browserify =var uglify =var gulp =// using vinyl-source-stream:gulp
Not all that different, really! The nice thing here is that you're getting the up-to-date browserify API and don't have to worry about the plugin's available functionality. Of course, these same benefits apply for any readable text stream you can find on npm.
stream = sourceStream(filename|opts)
filename will be used to create stream which return file with path 'path' and content buffer, base will be set to path.dirname('path')
opts it is all arguments you can pass to vinyl (path, cwd, base).
also exists option
buffer which combine input stream to one buffer (default to true) and if false content of vinyl will be stream as it was in original module
