Package stream provides http.Handler middleware that passes-through the entire request

Stream works around several limitations caused by buffering implementations, but also introduces certain risks.

Workarounds for buffering limitations: 1. Streaming really large chunks of data (large file transfers, or streaming videos, etc.)

2. Streaming (chunking) sparse data. For example, an implementation might send a health check or a heart beat over a long-lived connection. This does not play well with buffering.

Risks: 1. Connections could survive for very long periods of time.

2. There is no easy way to enforce limits on size/time of a connection.

Examples of a streaming middleware:

// sample HTTP handler
handler := http.HandlerFunc(func(w http.ResponseWriter, req *http.Request) {

// Stream will literally pass through to the next handler without ANY buffering
// or validation of the data.

func IsValidExpression

func IsValidExpression(expr string) bool

IsValidExpression check if it's a valid expression.

func Logger

func Logger(l *log.Logger) optSetter

Logger defines the logger the streamer will use.

It defaults to logrus.StandardLogger(), the global logger used by logrus.


type Stream

type Stream struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

Stream is responsible for buffering requests and responses It buffers large requests and responses to disk,.

func New

func New(next http.Handler, setters ...optSetter) (*Stream, error)

func (*Stream) ServeHTTP
