erlang_streams

Build Status

A Stream wrapper library

install

include it as a rebar dependency:

{erl_streams, "*", {git, "git://github.com/epappas/erl_streams.git", {branch, "master"}}}

Idea

As process wrapper

gen_stream

A generic stream generator, a smart queue with states and able to pause or drop on backpressure.

Example:

%% Initiate Simple Stream
{ok, StreamPID} = gen_stream:start(test),

%% Simple put & take
ok = gen_stream:put(StreamPID, 1),
{ok, 1} = gen_stream:take(StreamPID),

%% Pause state
ok = gen_stream:pause(StreamPID),
{error, pause} = gen_stream:put(StreamPID, test),
ok = gen_stream:drain(StreamPID),
ok = gen_stream:put(StreamPID, 1),
{ok, 1} = gen_stream:take_and_pause(StreamPID),
true = gen_stream:is_paused(StreamPID),

%% Set a Max size, to manage back pressure
{ok, StreamPID} = gen_stream:start(test, 1),
ok = gen_stream:put(StreamPID, test),
{error, pause} = gen_stream:put(StreamPID, test),
{ok, test} = gen_stream:take(StreamPID),
ok = gen_stream:put(StreamPID, test),

%% Pipe through resources

%% add2_stream

-module(add2_stream).

-behaviour(gen_stream).

%% gen_stream callbacks
-export([init/1, on_data/3, on_offer/3, on_state/3]).

init(_Args) -> {ok, {}}.

on_data(_Resource, Stream, State) -> {ok, Stream, State}.

on_offer(Resource, Stream, State) -> {Resource + 2, Stream, State}.

on_state(State, _Stream, StateData) -> {ok, StateData}.

%% multi2_stream

-module(multi2_stream).

-behaviour(gen_stream).

%% gen_stream callbacks
-export([init/1, on_data/3, on_offer/3, on_state/3]).

init(_Args) -> {ok, {}}.

on_data(_Resource, Stream, State) -> {ok, Stream, State}.

on_offer(Resource, Stream, State) -> {Resource * 2, Stream, State}.

on_state(State, _Stream, StateData) -> {ok, StateData}.


%% main...

{ok, AddStreamPID} = gen_stream:start(add2_stream, add2_stream, []),
{ok, MultiStream1PID} = gen_stream:start(multi2_stream, multi2_stream, []),
{ok, MultiStream2PID} = gen_stream:start(multi2_stream, multi2_stream, []),

gen_stream:pipe(AddStreamPID, MultiStream1PID),
gen_stream:pipe(MultiStream1PID, MultiStream2PID),

gen_stream:put(AddStreamPID, 3),

{ok, 20} = gen_stream:take(MultiStream2PID).

Methods

gen_stream:start/0,

Creates an anonymous stream

gen_stream:start() -> {ok, Pid} | {error, {already_started, Pid}} | {error, any()}
gen_stream:start/1,

Creates a Named stream with default settings

gen_stream:start(any()) -> {ok, Pid} | {error, {already_started, Pid}} | {error, any()}
gen_stream:start/2,

Creates a Named stream with Max buffer or wraps a stream that implements the gen_stream behaviour

gen_stream:start(any(), number() | atom()) -> {ok, Pid} | {error, {already_started, Pid}} | {error, any()}

{ok, Pid} = gen_stream:start(test, 10),
{ok, Pid} = gen_stream:start(test, simple_stream)
gen_stream:start/3,
gen_stream:start(any(), number() | atom(), list() | number()) -> {ok, Pid} | {error, {already_started, Pid}} | {error, any()}

{ok, Pid} = gen_stream:start(test, simple_stream, 10),
{ok, Pid} = gen_stream:start(test, simple_stream, InitArgs)
gen_stream:start/4,
gen_stream:start(any(), number(), atom(), list()) -> {ok, Pid} | {error, {already_started, Pid}} | {error, any()}

{ok, Pid} = gen_stream:start(test, 10, simple_stream, InitArgs)
gen_stream:pipe/2,
gen_stream:pipe(pid(), pid()) -> ok

ok = gen_stream:pipe(Stream_left_PID, Stream_right_PID)
gen_stream:put/2,
gen_stream:put(pid(), any()) -> ok | {error, pause}
gen_stream:put_from_list/2,
gen_stream:put_from_list(pid(), list()) -> ok | {error, pause}
gen_stream:put_while/2,
gen_stream:put_while(pid(), fun()) -> ok | {error, pause}

where fun()

fun (_StreamPid) -> 
    Resource
end
gen_stream:take/1,
gen_stream:take(pid()) -> {ok, any()}

Take gives undefined when stream is empty

gen_stream:take/2,

Take a number of resources

gen_stream:take(pid(), number()) -> {ok, any()}
gen_stream:take_and_pause/2,

The stream will be paused after this call

gen_stream:take_and_pause(pid()) -> {ok, any()}
gen_stream:drain/1,

Unpause the stream, if the stream is blocked due to back pressure, then drain is not affecting

gen_stream:drain(pid()) -> ok
gen_stream:resume/1,

Stream will no drop anymore

gen_stream:resume(pid()) -> ok    
gen_stream:drop/1,

Streams is in a drop state, each inputted resource will be ignored, and the response will be ok

gen_stream:drop(pid()) -> ok
gen_stream:drop_while/2,
gen_stream:drop_while(pid(), fun()) -> ok

Where fun/2

Dropping_Fn(StreamPid, Resource) -> boolean()
gen_stream:pause/1,
gen_stream:pause(pid()) -> ok
gen_stream:filter/2,
gen_stream:filter(pid(), fun()) -> ok

Where fun/2

FilterFn(Resource, Buffer) -> boolean()
gen_stream:map/2,
gen_stream:map(pid(), fun()) -> ok

Where fun/2

MapFn(Resource, Buffer) -> Resource :: any()
gen_stream:reduce/2,
gen_stream:reduce(pid(), fun()) -> ok

Where fun/2

ReduceFn(Acc, Resource, Buffer) -> NewAcc :: any()
gen_stream:reduce/3,
gen_stream:reduce(pid(), fun(), Acc :: any()) -> ok

Where fun/2

ReduceFn(Acc, Resource, Buffer) -> NewAcc :: any()
gen_stream:can_accept/1,
gen_stream:can_accept(pid()) -> boolean()
gen_stream:is_empty/1,
gen_stream:is_empty(pid()) -> boolean()
gen_stream:is_paused/1,
gen_stream:is_paused(pid()) -> boolean()
gen_stream:is_closed/1,
gen_stream:is_closed(pid()) -> boolean()
gen_stream:is_stopped/1,
gen_stream:is_stopped(pid()) -> boolean()
gen_stream:is_open/1,
gen_stream:is_open(pid()) -> boolean()

As a data structure

#stream{}

A data structure with cases to handle backpressure, paused and closed states

You can’t perform that action at this time.
