import {NDJSONLoader} from '';
import {load} from '';

const data = await load(url, NDJSONLoader, {ndjson: options});

The NDJSONLoader supports streaming NDJSON parsing, in which case it will yield "batches" of rows, where each row is a parsed line from the NDJSON stream.

import {NDJSONLoader} from '';
import {loadInBatches} from '';

const batches = await loadInBatches('ndjson.ndjson', NDJSONLoader);

for await (const batch of batches) {
  // will contain a number of rows
  for (const obj of {
    // Process obj

Data Format

Parsed batches are of the format.

  // standard batch payload
  data: any[] | any;
  bytesUsed: number;
  batchCount: number;

Each element in the data array corresponds to a line (Object) in the NDJSON data.


Supports the table category options such as batchSize.
