ricea Update Makefile to copy top-level demos files
Top-level files in the top-level "demos/" directory were not being
copied as they did not match the expression "demos/\*\*/\*". Change the
expression to "demos/\* demos/\*\*/\*" to cause all the files to be copied.

This solution is ugly and causes (harmless) "skipping directory"
warnings to be output by rsync.

It may be better to add the --recursive flag to rsync as a long-term

Streams Standard

This repository hosts the Streams Standard.

Contribution opportunities

Folks notice minor and larger issues with the Streams Standard all the time and we'd love your help fixing those. Pull requests for typographical and grammar errors are also most welcome.

We'd be happy to mentor you through this process. If you're interested and need help getting started, leave a comment on the issue or ask around on IRC.

Pull requests

In short, change and submit your patch, with a good commit message. Consider reading through the WHATWG FAQ if you are new here.

Please add your name to the Acknowledgments section in your first pull request, even for trivial fixes. The names are sorted lexicographically.

For formatting specific to this standard, see Additionally, for any normative changes, we'll also want to change the tests and reference implementation:


Tests can be found in the streams/ directory of web-platform-tests/wpt.

Reference implementation

This repository also includes a reference implementation, written in JavaScript, under reference-implementation/. See the README under that directory for more details.

We strive for every commit that changes the spec to also add tests, and to change the reference implementation in order to pass those tests.

Building "locally"

This standard requires a recent version of Node.js to be installed as a prerequisite. Once that's done, you'll need to do a one-time run of npm install to set up our tooling.

For quick local iteration, run make. To verify your changes locally, run make deploy. See more in the WHATWG Contributor Guidelines.

Merge policy

If you can commit to this repository, see the WHATWG Maintainer Guidelines.

Code of conduct

We are committed to providing a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all. Please read and respect the WHATWG Code of Conduct.
