Wrapper for `Duplex` stream objects to ensure they respect back-pressure


Wrapper for Duplex stream objects to ensure they respect back-pressure

This module add support for back-pressure on Duplex stream objects that don't support it, sending in-wire messages to control the flow. It's specially useful for network streams to notify the sender end to pause or resume sending info in case the receiver can't be able to process them as fast, so there's no need to collapse the network.


npm install backpressurify


  • duplex: Duplex stream object to be wrapped
  • options: options passed to the parent Duplex constructor
