Patching Socket

When using SocketRecorder, net.Socket needs to be patched before anything else extends or creates a Socket in order for that to be recorded. Patching can be done by either calling patch() or by assigning record:

require('socket-recorder').patch();

// automatically patches when retrieving the record method:
const { record } = require('socket-recorder');

// net Socket can also be unpatched:
require('socket-recorder').unpatch();

Basic usage

const { record } = require('socket-recorder');

// basic recording of process.stdout
record((done) => {
  console.log('Hello, world!');
  console.log('Goodbye, world!');
  done();
}, (log) => {
  // returns an array of sockets and their messages
});

// or use it as a Promise
record((resolve, reject) => {
  console.log('I promise!');
  resolve();
}).then((log) => {

});

Response from console.log:

[
  {
    events: [
      { request: 'Hello, world!\n', created_at: 1489460314753.3242 },
      { request: 'Goodbye, world!\n', created_at: 1489460314753.4758 }
    ],
    source: 'stdout'
  }
]

More advanced responses

const { record } = require('socket-recorder');
const express = require('express');

// recording of an HTTP transaction
const app = express();
app.get('/', (req, res) => {
  res.header('Content-length', 13);
  res.write('Hello, world!');
  res.end();
});
const server = app.listen(8888, () => {
  record((done) => {
    http.get('http://localhost:8888', done);
  }, (log) => {
    // returns an array of sockets and their messages,
    // both request and response
    server.close();
  });
});

Response from HTTP transaction:
