      fs = require('fs');


fs.createReadStream('objects.json')

  .pipe(JSONStream.stringify())
  .pipe(fs.createWriteStream('batchedObjects.json'));

Description

This module will buffer up objects in an object stream and batch of events with the buffered up objects further down the stream.
The output of the stream will then emit arrays containing the buffered up objects.

API

This module have the following API:

throughBatch(size, transform)

Creates an instance for batching.
const const throughBatch = require('through-batch');
let batch = throughBatch(size, transform);

size (required)

How many objects each batch should contain.

transform

A transform function used to transform the objects that is being buffered.
let batch = throughBatch(4, (obj) => {
    obj['_foo'] = 'bar';
    return obj;
});

node.js compabillity

This module use some native ES6 functions only found in node.js 4.x and newer. This module will not function with older than 4.x versions of node.js.

error handling

This module does not handle errors for you, so you must handle errors on whatever streams you pipe into this module. This is a general rule when programming with node.js streams: always handle errors on each and every stream.
We recommend using end-of-stream or pump for writing error tolerant stream code.
