json-array-streams: Streams for JSON array parsing/stringifying

This package provides streams for parsing and stringifying a stream of objects to a JSON array. This is useful when you have huge lists of generated data from a stream that you can’t (or don’t want to) entirely keep in memory, and instead want to directly stream this to/from storage.

Installation

npm install json-array-streams --save

Usage

var through = require("through2");
var fs = require("fs");
var jsonArrayStreams = require("json-array-streams");

// Write a stream of objects to a JSON file
createSomeObjectStream()
  .pipe(jsonArrayStreams.stringify())
  .pipe(fs.createWriteStream("data.json"));

// Read a stream of objects from a JSON file
fs.createReadStream("data.json")
  .pipe(jsonArrayStreams.parse())
  .pipe(through.obj(function (object, enc, cb) {
    console.log("Got object", object);
    cb();
  }));
