set-blocking

Build Status NPM version Coverage Status Standard Version

Set blocking stdio and stderr ensuring that terminal output does not truncate.

const setBlocking = require('set-blocking')
setBlocking(true)
console.log(someLargeStringToOutput)

Historical Context/Word of Warning

This was created as a shim to address the bug discussed in node #6456. This bug crops up on newer versions of Node.js (0.12+), truncating terminal output.

You should be mindful of the side-effects caused by using set-blocking:

  • If your module sets blocking to true, it will affect other modules consuming your library. In yargs we only call setBlocking(true) once we already know we are about to call process.exit(code).
  • This patch will not apply to subprocesses spawned with isTTY = true, this is the default spawn() behavior.
