Carrier helps you implement new-line terminated protocols over node.js.

The client can send you chunks of lines and carrier will only notify you on each completed line.

Install

$ npm install carrier

Usage

var net     = require('net'),
    carrier = require('carrier');

var server = net.createServer(function(conn) {
  carrier.carry(conn, function(line) {
    console.log('got one line: ' + line);
  });
});
server.listen(4001);

Or, you can also listen to the "line" event on the returned object of carrier.carry() like this:

var net     = require('net'),
    carrier = require('carrier');

var server = net.createServer(function(conn) {
  var my_carrier = carrier.carry(conn);
  my_carrier.on('line',  function(line) {
    console.log('got one line: ' + line);
  });
});
server.listen(4001);
