    Install

    npm install write-limiter
    

    Usage

    var Limiter = require("write-limiter");
    var limiter = new Limiter(500);
    // or
    var otherLimiter = new Limiter({
      interval: 500,
      objectMode: true
    })

    Constructor(Number|Object): The constructor takes either a single number argument or an object with an interval property. Passing an object allows for passing along node.js Stream arguments to the underlying through stream parent class.

    The provided number or interval property represents how long, in milliseconds, to wait between writes.


    Example

    Using write-limiter to limit jpegs coming from an mjpeg-consumer stream to, at-most, 5 frames per second:

    var Limiter = require("write-limiter");
     
    var request = require("request");
    var MjpegConsumer = require("mjpeg-consumer");
    var FileOnWrite = require("file-on-write");
     
    var writer = new FileOnWrite({
      path: './video',
      ext: '.jpg'
    });
    var consumer = new MjpegConsumer();
     
    var limiter = new Limiter(200);
     
    request("http://192.168.1.2/videostream.cgi").pipe(consumer).pipe(limiter).pipe(writer);

    Install

    npm i write-limiter
