npm install --save readable-stream

This package is a mirror of the streams implementations in Node.js.
Full documentation may be found on the Node.js website.
If you want to guarantee a stable streams base, regardless of what version of Node you, or the users of your libraries are using, use readable-stream only and avoid the "stream" module in Node-core, for background see this blogpost.
As of version 2.0.0 readable-stream uses semantic versioning.

Usage
You can swap your require('stream') with require('readable-stream') without any changes, if you are just using one of the main classes and functions.
```js const { Readable, Writable, Transform, Duplex, pipeline, finished } = require('readable-stream') ````
Note that require('stream') will return Stream, while require('readable-stream') will return Readable. We discourage using whatever is exported directly, but rather use one of the properties as shown in the example above.
Streams Working Group
readable-stream is maintained by the Streams Working Group, which oversees the development and maintenance of the Streams API within Node.js. The responsibilities of the Streams Working Group include:
  • Addressing stream issues on the Node.js issue tracker.
  • Authoring and editing stream documentation within the Node.js project.
  • Reviewing changes to stream subclasses within the Node.js project.
  • Redirecting changes to streams from the Node.js project to this
project.
  • Assisting in the implementation of stream providers within Node.js.
  • Recommending versions of readable-stream to be included in Node.js.
  • Messaging about the future of streams to give the community advance
notice of changes.
