CoNext.js

NPM version

CoNext.js is a small function for JavaScript to wrap a generator function with Co for use as request handlers and middlewares. Calls the last argument (usually called next) if there was an error, but not if the generator finishes successfully. Useful with Express routes.

Installing

npm install co-next

CoNext.js follows semantic versioning, so feel free to depend on its major version with something like >= 1.0.0 < 2 (a.k.a ^1.0.0).

Using

var next = require("co-next")
var app = require("express")()
 
app.get("/", next(function*(req, res, next) {
  if (req.account == null) throw new Error("Unauthorized")
  res.send("Hello, world!")
}))

In the above example, the thrown error will be passed to next, which in Express's case calls the error handling middleware later on. If the generator succeeds, the next callback will not be called.

If you need to, like in middleware handlers, you can always call next yourself:

app.use(next(function*(req, res, next) {
  var account = yield accounts.read(req.session.accountId)
  if (account == null) return void next(new Error("Unauthorized"))
  req.account = account
  next()
}))
