@sealsystems/streamparser is a generic stream parser for Node.js.

This is module parses streams in a generic way. You can add your own transitions and emit events while the stream is parsed.


$ npm install @sealsystems/streamparser

Quick start

First you need to integrate @sealsystems/streamparser into your application.

const StreamParser = require('@sealsystems/streamparser');

To use the generic stream parser you may use this code block. Put all your transition code into a directory transitions and require all of them with requireAll. Tell the stream parser which state to start with.

const path = require('path');

const requireAll = require('require-all');
const StreamParser = require('@sealsystems/streamparser');

const transitions = requireAll(path.join(__dirname, 'transitions'));

const streamparser = new StreamParser({ transitions, startWithState: 'ready' });

streamparser.on('myEvent', (data) => {
  console.log('myEvent:', data);

In each of your transitions you have to export one function named as you like (e.g transition). Within this function you have to call the done function with an object that contains at least the next state and if you have handled bytes the number of handled bytes. In the case that you are in the last state you must not pass an object to the done function.

const ready = function (data) {
  this.emit('myEvent', data);
    nextState: 'myNextState',
    bytesHandled: 1

module.exports = ready;
