Invokes callback with single error argument if timeout occurs before it's invoked by other means


Executes callback with single error argument if timeout is exceeded before it's called naturally

var timeout = require('callback-timeout')
function doSomethingFast(cb) { setTimeout(cb, 100) }
function doSomethingSlow(cb) { setTimeout(cb, 2000) }
doSomethingFast(timeout(function doSomethingFastHandler (err) {
    if (err)
        console.log(err.message) // Will not happen 
        console.log('doSomethingFastHandler executed without error.') // Will happen 
}, 1000))
doSomethingSlow(timeout(function doSomethingSlowHandler (err) {
    if (err)
        console.log(err.message) // Will happen 
        console.log('doSomethingSlowHandler executed without error.') // Will not happen 
}, 1000))
var timeout      = require('callback-timeout'),
    TimeoutError = require('callback-timeout/errors').TimeoutError

Returns a callback function that will execute after ms milliseconds with a single TimeoutError argument if not invoked by other means first. If the ms timeout argument is omitted, 0, or null, then the timeout is disabled and the original callback is returned. msg may be used to set a custom error message (on timeout), otherwise an appropriate one will be set for you.

The constructor of the error thrown when a timeout occurs.

With npm do:

npm install callback-timeout

npm test [--dot | --spec] [--grep=pattern]

Specifying --dot or --spec will change the output from the default TAP style. Specifying --grep will only run the test files that match the given pattern.

npm run browser-tests

This will run the tests in all browsers (specified in .zuul.yml). Be sure to educate zuul first.

npm run coverage [--html]

This will output a textual coverage report. Including --html will also open an HTML coverage report in the default browser.
