Node streams - a fractal of weird design

and a potential refactor that could fix that

This is a list of issues and confusions I've encountered with node streams, and things I wish were designed and implemented differently. If promise-streams is ever going to change to a design that doesn't build on top of node streams, this would be a list of mistakes to avoid

  1. enc parameter - Why is encoding always passed together with the data? It should be a separate concern. It doesn't even make sense in objectMode
  2. eventemitter base - There is no reason to use an uncomposable grab-bag of stringy events as a base
  3. relying on nextTick etc for execution order - This is very unreliable and causes all sorts of unpredictable rules for implementers which are not documented anywhere.
  4. no error propagation

Here are some things you can do with Gists in GistBox.
View 0_reuse_code.js
// Use Gists to store code you would like to remember later on
console.log(window); // log the "window" object to the console
You can’t perform that action at this time.
