A node stream that wraps xhr GET requests as a stream.
Created because the browserify node http module emits all the data as it's received, and it cannot be paused. This can cause the browser to peg the cpu if it's a large request. This module allows you to pause the stream, so it stops emitting data events. XHR responseText is buffered anyway, so when this stream is resumed, it starts emitting buffered data stored in responseText.
var XHRStream =xhr =xhrvar stream = xhr: xhrcount = 0stream// orvar XHRStream =var stream = url: ''count = 0stream
You can specify additional options when initializing.
When using the xhr option:
var XHRStream =xhr =xhrvar stream = xhr: xhr chunkSize: 2048
When using the url option
var XHRStream =var stream =url: ''method: 'GET'contentType: 'application/json'data: 'data passed to xhr.send()'chunkSize: 2048
