Create and get polls on Straw Poll.

Example

Here's an example using concat-stream:

var concat = require('concat-stream');
var strawpoll = require('strawpoll');

var stream = strawpoll({
  title: 'My first poll',
  options: [
    'wow',
    'awesome',
    'amazing',
    'nice'
  ],
  multi: false,
  permissive: true
});

stream.pipe(concat(function(poll) {
  poll = JSON.parse(poll);
  // poll.id is your poll's id
  // check out your poll at strawpoll.me/id
}));

Add JSONStream and you don't even have to use JSON.parse yourself!

var concat = require('concat-stream');
var JSONStream = require('JSONStream');
var strawpoll = require('strawpoll');

var stream = strawpoll({
  title: 'My first poll',
  options: [
    'wow',
    'awesome',
    'amazing',
    'nice'
  ],
  multi: false,
  permissive: true
})
  .pipe(JSONStream.parse('id'))
  .pipe(concat(function(id) {
    // `id` is a Buffer here
    // `id.toString()` is your poll's id
  }));

An example of getting a poll with concat-stream:

var concat = require('concat-stream');
var strawpoll = require('strawpoll');

var stream = strawpoll.get(1)
  .pipe(concat(function(poll) {
    poll = JSON.parse(poll);
    // poll.id is the id you requested
    // poll.title is the title of the poll
  }));

The JSON parsed response will match examples from the Straw Poll API.
