A writer abstraction.

type t = {
  1. write : Output.t -> unit;


A writer is a push-based stream of bytes. Give it an output channel and it will write the bytes in it.

This is useful for responses: an http endpoint can return a writer as its response's body; the writer is given access to the connection to the client and can write into it as if it were a regular out_channel, including controlling calls to flush. Tiny_httpd will convert these writes into valid HTTP chunks.

val make : write:(Output.t -> unit) -> unit -> t
val write : Output.t -> t -> unit

Write into the channel.

val empty : t

Empty writer, will output 0 bytes.

val of_string : string -> t

A writer that just emits the bytes from the given string.
