streaming

Fast, safe and composable streaming abstractions
README

Streaming abstractions that combine, transform and reduce large amounts of
sequential data efficiently, in constant space and without leaking resources.

Overview

Streaming uses composable stream producers (sources), consumers (sinks) and
transformers (flows). The central model that abstracts over them is a Stream.

The following features are provided:

  • Constant memory usage: large or infinite streams can be computed in constant
    and small space. Buffering of the input is possible when needed.

  • Excellent performance: all models were designed with performance at the
    core. See benchmarks for detailed
    comparison with other libraries.

  • Resource safety: resources in effectful streaming pipelines are allocated
    lazily and released as early as possible. Resources are guaranteed to
    be terminated even when streams rise exceptions.

  • Flexibility: both push-based and pull-based models are implemented to
    allow efficient zipping, concatenation and other streaming operations.

  • Streaming notation: build streams and sinks using a convenient
    comprehension and applicative notations.

This library is based on ideas found in other libraries and research projects
such as: Haskell's Pipes
and Foldl libraries,
Scala's ZIO Streams, Clojure's
Transducers and the
Iteratees streaming model by Oleg
Kiselyov.
