The zlib.createBrotliCompress() method is an inbuilt application programming interface of the Zlib module which is used to create BrotliCompress object. Syntax:
zlib.createBrotliCompress( options )
Parameters: This method accepts single parameter options which is an optional parameter that holds the zlib options. Return Value: It returns a new BrotliCompress object. Below examples illustrate the use of zlib.createBrotliCompress() method in Node.js: Example 1:
// Node.js program to demonstrate the     
// createBrotliCompress() method
  
// Including zlib and fs module
const zlib = require("zlib");
const fs = require('fs');
  
// Creating readable Stream
const inp = fs.createReadStream('input.txt');
  
// Creating writable stream
const out = fs.createWriteStream('input.txt.gz');
  
// Calling createBrotliCompress method
const brot = zlib.createBrotliCompress();
  
// Piping
inp.pipe(brot).pipe(out);
console.log("Program Completed!");

                    
Output:
Program Completed!
Example 2:
// Node.js program to demonstrate the     
// createBrotliCompress() method
  
// Including zlib and fs module
const zlib = require("zlib");
const fs = require('fs');
  
// Creating readable Stream
const inp = fs.createReadStream('input.txt');
  
// Creating writable stream
const out = fs.createWriteStream('input.txt.gz');
  
// Calling createBrotliCompress method
const brot = zlib.createBrotliCompress();
  
// Piping
inp.pipe(out).pipe(brot);
console.log("Program Completed!");

                    
Output:
Error [ERR_STREAM_CANNOT_PIPE]: Cannot pipe, not readable
    at WriteStream.Writable.pipe (_stream_writable.js:243:24)

Here, piping is not done in a proper order so, error is thrown. Reference: https://nodejs.org/api/zlib.html#zlib_zlib_createbrotlicompress_options
