Clean the callstack from error messages


Clean the callstack from error messages

Install the module with: npm install callstack-cleaner

var callstack_cleaner = require('callstack-cleaner');
var _err = new Error("plop");
var err = new Error("Redis reply parser error: " + _err.stack); // see `Why` section 
err = callstack_cleaner(err); // "Redis reply parser error: Error: plop" 

node_redis emit parser error in a weird way:

this.reply_parser.on("error", function (err) {
    self.emit("error", new Error("Redis reply parser error: " + err.stack));

Callstack-cleaner remove the callstack from the emitted error.message.

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using grunt.
