Streams Standard

The streams standard provides APIs for creating, composing, and consuming streams of data. These streams are designed to map efficiently to low-level I/O primitives, and allow easy composition with built-in backpressure and queuing.

The main spec is available at, generated from the file. We are also working on a number of potential extensions: see and

Snapshots of any given commit or branch are available at specially-crafted URLs:

This repository also includes a polyfill and test suite under reference-implementation/. See the README under that directory for more details. The test suite is automatically deployed, in a form viable for running against browsers, to

Building the spec

Building the spec is a two-step process. First, the majority of the conversion work is done via Bikeshed. Second, we run a custom portion of the Ecmarkup pipeline to convert the algorithms from Ecmarkdown syntax into HTML, and to automatically add cross-references. This second step requires io.js to be installed.


To run Bikeshed locally, install Bikeshed and then run bikeshed spec in the working directory.

Alternately, you can use the command

curl -F md-Text-Macro="SNAPSHOT-LINK dummy" -F > index.tmp.html

to use Bikeshed's web interface without installing anything.


To run the Ecmarkup step, be sure you've done npm install in the root directory, then run

npm run ecmarkupify index.tmp.html index.html

Local "Deploy"

To get the full build experience, including commit and branch snapshots, you can run

bash ./ --local

This will output a bunch of files to the directory, equaling those that would be uploaded to the server on deploy.

Local Watch

If you have Bikeshed installed locally, and have run npm install, you can try running

npm run local-watch

to start a watcher on that will update index.html as you edit.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
