JavaScript Style Guide Build Status experimental

Stream toolbox library

While working with streams, these basic operations will ease your life.

Quickstart

npm i waterpark
const {range, take, reduce} = require('waterpark')
 
// sum even numbers from 0 to 100
range(0, 100)
  .pipe(take.obj({amount: 1, every: 2}))
  .pipe(reduce.obj((sum, val) => sum + val, 0))
  .on('data', console.log)

Supported Streaming Modes

Object Mode: stream with objectMode: true

Buffer Mode: stream with objectMode: false

Waterpark streams default to objectMode (exception: fromBuffer).

Types: R = Readable, T = Transform, W = Writable, D = Duplex

Name Type Object Mode Buffer Mode Shorthand
concurrent T concurrent (concurrency, transformHandler, options)
count R count (offset, options)
delay T delay (milliseconds, jitter, options)
filter T filter (filterHandler, options)
fromArray R fromArray (array, options)
fromBuffer R fromBuffer (buffer, options)
interval R interval (milliseconds, options)
multicore T multicore (cores, path, options)
random R random (size, options)
range R range (from, to, options)
reduce R reduce (reducer, initialValue, repeatAfter)
slice T slice (begin, end, every, options)
skip T skip (begin, every, options)
take T take (amount, every, options)
through T through (fn, options)

concurrent (options)

  • concurrency <Number> integer, concurrent transform operations.
  • ...options <TransformOptions> optional stream options.
  • Returns: <Transform> supporting object mode ✓ | buffer mode ✓

Concurrent stream processing.

Example

const {range, concurrent} = require('waterpark')

  .pipe(concurrent({
    concurrency: 10,
    transform: (data, encoding, cb) => {
      setTimeout(() => cb(null, data), 100)
    }
   }))
  .on('data', console.log)

Finishes in ~1s while through would take ~10s

Example

const {range, delay} = require('waterpark')
range({from: 1, to: 3})
  .pipe(delay({delay: 500}))
  .on('data', console.log)

Expected output:

1
2
3

Lines will be printed in sequence. Each one delayed by ~500ms.

filter (options)

  • filter <[Function](data) => [Boolean]> pipe data that meets the filter condition.
  • ...options <TransformOptions> optional stream options.
  • Returns: <Transform> supporting object mode ✓ | buffer mode ✗

Emits data that passes the filter filter condition. This stream operates in object mode per default.

Example

const {range, filter} = require('waterpark')
range(1, 5)
  .pipe(filter(n => n % 2))
  .on('data', console.log)

Expected output:

1
3
5

The inital range 1 to 5 is filtered for odd numbers

multicore (options)

  • path <String> path to module that will be used for clustering.
  • cores <Number> number of cores used in parallel.
  • ...options <TransformOptions> optional stream options.
  • Returns: <Transform> supporting object mode ✓ | buffer mode ✓

Stream operations in parallel on multiple cores. ★

Forks the module referenced by path, core times, spreads the previous stream data to these child processes, computes their transform handlers in parallel and collects their digests while preserving order.

Communication between the main process and child processes is done via JSON encoding. Include serialization and deserialization of data that needs to be communicated to the worker and back into your performance estimation. If your work is mostly I/O bound you might be looking for concurrent which is used in multicore as scheduler.

For optimal performance, use the number of physical cores. Exceeding that amount is possible on machines with hyper threading, yet might yield actually less performance due to thrashing.

Example

Let's do some cpu intense calculation and compute the 1e6-fold SHA256 hash of multiple messages.

./main.js

const {range, multicore} = require('waterpark')
range(1, 12)
  .pipe(multicore(4, require.resolve('./worker.js')))
  .on('data', console.log)

./worker.js

const {createHash} = require('crypto')
 
process.on('message', (msg) => {
  for (let i = 1e6; i > 0; i--) {
    msg = createHash('sha256').update(msg.toString()).digest('hex')
  }
  process.send(msg)
})

Then execute node main

Expected output:

d6c3110abae572a3ce11a696068dca0f01961fbbf9f2c08bdfdde3640b79db0b
3a2ae473ab4a5fc533adb7367af8b1ffdd5a5a78fafb51945a0869021b07bb14
945a76e4ef3a32651ffde16b90d26c24bbadc9bdf50ff5f580f869108d6bff86
60ca5d721a66d84bfcfab6e0b79a8f5e83bb7a7cd24dcf11dcf4b8a348cf5fe8
...

Each line represents the outcome of a CPU intense calculation. range runs on the main process and sequentially pipes numbers into 4 child process each running on a separate core which are therefore able to calculate the expensive hash function in parallel.

slice (options)

  • begin <Number> zero based index at which to begin extraction. Default is 0
  • end <Number> pass elements up to but not including (zero based index).
  • every <Number> repeat slice operation after every elements.
  • ...options <TransformOptions> optional stream options.
  • Returns: <Transform> supporting object mode ✓ | buffer mode ✓

Similar to Array.slice() and Buffer.slice() slice is acting as range filter on its source.

In respect to streams potential infinite nature, the every parameter has been introduced.

Example Every 5 elements, pass the 2nd to the 4th element.

const {range, slice} = require('waterpark')
range(0, 9)
  .pipe(slice.obj(1, 4, 5))
  .on('data', console.log)

Expected output:

1
2
3
6
7
8

reduce (reducer[, initalValue][, every])

  • options <TransformOptions> optional stream options.
  • reducer <Function (accumulator, currentValue, currentIndex)>
    • accumulator <any> accumulates the callbacks return values.
    • currentValue <any> the current element being processed.
    • currentIndex <Number> zero based index of the current element.
  • initialValue <any> Initial accumulator value. Default is 0
  • every <Number> repeat reduction after every steps. Default is infinity which reduces only once at the end of the source.
  • Returns: <Transform> supporting object mode ✓ | buffer mode ✗

Reduces stream emissions to one (source stream must be finite) or many if every is set.

Example Every 4 numbers emit the sum of the last 4 numbers.

const {range, reduce} = require('waterpark')
 
range.obj(1, 100)
  .pipe(reduce.obj((sum, val) => sum + val, 0, 4))
  .on('data', console.log)

Expected output:

10
26
42
58
74
...

skip (amount[, every][, options])

  • amount <Number> skip this amount of objects / bytes. Default is 0
  • every <Number> repeat skip operation after every elements. Default is infinity. every must be bigger than amount.
  • ...options <TransformOptions> optional stream options.
  • Returns: <Transform> supporting object mode ✓ | buffer mode ✓

See also: slice

In respect to streams potential infinite nature, the every parameter has been introduced.

Example Every 5 elements, pass the 2nd to the 4th element.

const {range, slice} = require('waterpark')
range(0, 9)
  .pipe(slice(1, 4, 5))
  .on('data', console.log)

Expected output:

1
2
3
6
7
8

take (amount[, every][, options])

  • amount <Number> only take this amount of objects / bytes. Default is 0
  • every <Number> repeat take operation after every elements. Default is infinity, which will cause take to end after amount elements have been processed.
  • ...options <TransformOptions> optional stream options.
  • Returns: <Transform> supporting object mode ✓ | buffer mode ✓

In respect to streams potential infinite nature, the every parameter has been introduced.

count()
  .pipe(take(3))
  .on('data', console.log)

Expected output:

0
