Convert a (async) iterator to a pull stream

Install

npm install async-iterator-to-pull-stream

Usage

const pull = require('pull-stream')
const toPull = require('async-iterator-to-pull-stream')
 
const source = (async function * () {
  const sourceValues = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
  for (let i = 0; i < sourceValues.length; i++) {
    yield await new Promise(resolve => setTimeout(() => resolve(sourceValues[i])))
  }
})()
 
pull(
  toPull.source(source),
  pull.collect((err, values) => {
    console.log(values) // 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
  })
)

API

toPull.source(iterator)

Convert an async iterator into a source pull stream. Returns a pull stream that can be used as a source in a pull pipeline.

toPull.transform(transform)

A transform is a function that takes an iterable to read from, and returns an iterable that yields (possibly mutated) data. e.g.

const toPull = require('async-iterator-to-pull-stream')
const pull = require('pull-stream')
 
// A "pass through stream" that reads from the `source` iterable and returns an
// iterable (a generator in this case) that yields the same data.
const passThrough = source => (async function * () {
  for await (const chunk of source) {
    yield chunk // here we _could_ change the chunk or buffer it or whatever
  }
})()
 
pull(
  pull.values([1, 2, 3]),
  toPull.transform(passThrough),
  pull.collect((err, chunks) => {
    console.log(err, chunks) // logs: undefined, [1, 2, 3]
  })
)

toPull.sink(sink)

Convert a sink to a pull stream sink. A sink is a function that takes an async iterable and consumes some/all of it.

const toPull = require('async-iterator-to-pull-stream')
const pull = require('pull-stream')
 
pull(
  pull.values([1, 2, 3]),
  toPull.sink(async source => {
    for await (const value of source) {
      console.log(value) // logs: 1 then 2 then 3
    }
  })
)

toPull.duplex(duplex)

Convert a duplex to a pull stream duplex. A duplex is just an object with two properties, sink (a function that takes an async iterable) and source (an async iterable).
