Tryfn

Micro framework which wraps try-catch blocks for performance and readability. It also enables switch/case like syntax when catching errors

Table of contents

Install

To install execute:

npm install tryfn --save

Imagine that you have some code which can fail,usually you do:

var result;
try{
    result = myFunctionWhichCanFail();
}catch(err){}

With tryfn all you have to do is:

var Try = require('tryfn');
var result = Try(myFunctionWhichCanFail).value;

If you want a default value in case of failure you can do:

var Try = require('tryfn');
var myDefaultValue = 42;
var result = Try(myFunctionWhichCanFail).catch(42);//no need to call .value

If you want to run a function in case of failure and use the return as default:

var Try = require('tryfn');
var catcher = function(e){
    console.log(e);
    return 42;
};
var result = Try(myFunctionWhichCanFail).catchFn(catcher);//no need to call .value

And for last and not least you can use it to handle multiple errors types as:

var Try = require('tryfn');

var result = Try(myFunctionWhichCanFail)
    .catchCase(SomeErrorType,42)
    .catchCaseFn(OtherErrorType,function(e){
        console.log(e);
        return 43;
    }).catch(44);//default catch (not required you can use .value if you dont want a default catcher

Why

Because some times you just want to protect your code from some error to occur and the you end with a lot of catch(err){} in your code, or because js dont give programmers any kind of pattern matching when dealing with error and also because try/catch blocks prevents your function of being optimized so using tryfn MAY give you performance improvement

Test

Run test with:

npm run test
