retry for functions returning a promise

Usage

Install with yarn: yarn add ts-retry-promise

Install with npm: npm install --save ts-retry-promise

Then you can import it with:

import { retry } from 'ts-retry-promise';

const result: number = await retry(() => Promise.resolve(1), {retries: 3});

This will instantly start calling your function until it returns a resolved promise, no retries are left or a timeout occurred.

If you want to add retries to an existing function, use the decorator:

import { retryDecorator } from 'ts-retry-promise';

const asyncFunction = async (s: String) => s;

const decoratedFunction = retryDecorator(asyncFunction, {timeout: 1});

const result: string = await decoratedFunction("1");

Here decoratedFunction is a function with the same signature as asyncFunction, but will do retries in case of failures.

Configuration

Both retry and retryDecorator take an optional second argument where you can configure the number of retries and timeouts:

export interface RetryConfig<T> {
    // number of maximal retry attempts (default: 10)
    retries?: number | "INFINITELY";

    // wait time between retries in ms (default: 100)
    delay?: number;

    // check the result, will retry until true (default: () => true)
    until?: (t: T) => boolean;

    // log events (default: () => undefined)
    logger?: (msg: string) => void;

    // overall timeout in ms (default: 60 * 1000)
    timeout?: number;

    // increase delay with every retry (default: "FIXED")
    backoff?: "FIXED" | "EXPONENTIAL" | "LINEAR" | ((attempt: number, delay: number) => number);

    // maximal backoff in ms (default: 5 * 60 * 1000)
    maxBackOff?: number;
}

Customize

customizeRetry returns a new instance of retry that has the defined default configuration.

import { customizeRetry } from 'ts-retry-promise'; 

const impatientRetry = customizeRetry({timeout: 5});

await expect(impatientRetry(async () => wait(10))).to.be.rejectedWith("Timeout");

// another example

const retryUntilNotEmpty = customizeRetry({until: (array: any[]) => array.length > 0});

const result = await retryUntilNotEmpty(async () => [1, 2]);

expect(result).to.deep.eq([1, 2]);

You can do the same for decorators:

import { customizeDecorator } from 'ts-retry-promise'; 

const asyncFunction = async (s: string) => {
    await wait(3);
    return s;
};

const impatientDecorator = customizeDecorator({timeout: 1});

expect(impatientDecorator(asyncFunction)("1")).to.be.rejectedWith("Timeout");

Failure

In case retry failed, an error is thrown. You can access the error that occurred the last time the function has been retried via the property lastError:

retry(async () => throw "1")
    .catch(err => console.log(err.lastError)); // will print "1" 

NotRetryableError

Wrapped function can throw NotRetryableError if retrying need to be stopped eventually:

import { NotRetryableError } from 'ts-retry-promise';

retry(async () => throw new NotRetryableError("This error"))
    .catch(err => console.log(err.lastError), { retries: 'INFINITELY' });

Samples

retryDecorator can be used on any function that returns a promise

const loadUserProfile: (id: number) => Promise<{ name: string }> = async id => ({name: "Mr " + id});

const robustProfileLoader = retryDecorator(loadUserProfile, {retries: 2});

const profile = await robustProfileLoader(123);

retry is well suited for acceptance tests (but not restricted to)

// ts-retry-promise/test/retry-promise.demo.test.ts
it("will retry until no exception or limit reached", async () => {

    await retry(async () => {
        const title = await browser.$("h1");
        expect(title).to.eq("Loaded");
    });

});

it("can return a result", async () => {

    const pageTitle = await retry(async () => {
        const title = await browser.$("h1");
        expect(title).to.be.not.empty;
        return title;
    });

    // do some stuff with the result
    expect(pageTitle).to.eq("Loaded");
});

it("can be configured and has defaults", async () => {

    await retry(async () => {
        // your code
    }, {backoff: "LINEAR", retries: 100});

});

it("will retry until condition is met or limit reached", async () => {

    await retry(
        () => browser.$$("ul"),
        {until: (list) => list.length === 2});

});

it("can have a timeout", async () => {

    const promise = retry(
        () => wait(100),
        {timeout: 10},
    );

    await expect(promise).to.be.rejectedWith("Timeout");
});

it("can create a customized retry", async () => {
    const impatientRetry = customizeRetry({timeout: 5});

    await expect(impatientRetry(async () => wait(10))).to.be.rejectedWith("Timeout");
});

it("can create another customized retry", async () => {
    const retryUntilNotEmpty = customizeRetry({until: (array: number[]) => array.length > 0});

    const result = await retryUntilNotEmpty(async () => [1, 2]);

    expect(result).to.deep.eq([1, 2]);
});

it("can customize default config", async () => {
    const originalTimeout = defaultRetryConfig.timeout;
    try {
        defaultRetryConfig.timeout = 1;

        await expect(retry(async () => wait(10))).to.be.rejectedWith("Timeout");
    } finally {
        defaultRetryConfig.timeout = originalTimeout;
    }
});
