Return value helper for apis lib


var returnHandler = require('apis-return');
//Some resource class here 
Resource.prototype.get = function(id, cb) {
    db.get(id, returnHandler("NotFound", cb)); 
    //this will return standard 404 NotFound if error or db returns non result 
returnHandler(error, name, cb);
returnHandler(error, cb);
