👌 pxi-base comes preinstalled in pxi. No installation necessary. If you still want to install it, proceed as described below.

pxi-base is installed in ~/.pxi/ as follows:

npm install pxi-base

The plugin is included in ~/.pxi/index.js as follows:

const base = require('pxi-base')
module.exports = {
  plugins:  [base],
  context:  {},
  defaults: {}

For a much more detailed description, see the .pxi module documentation.


This plugin comes with the following pxi extensions:

line chunker Divides data on line breaks. A lot of data formats like CSV, TSV, and JSON line build on this separation.
map applier Applies pxi's functions to each individual line. Always returns a single result, unless an error is thrown during function application.
flatMap applier Applies pxi's functions to each individual line. May return any number of results, including none, thus being able to change the length of a file.
filter applier Treats pxi's functions as a conjunction of predicates and applies it to each individual line. If any predicate is false, the line is dropped, if all predicates return true, the line is kept.
string serializer Serializes each transformed JSON into a string separated by newlines.
