Diehard is a node.js module that helps you gracefully clean up your program at termination with multiple sync and/or async handlers. Wraps the
death npm module.
death is an incredibly useful module that abstracts out the need to handle the various kinds of termination events, but ultimately only supports a single handler. I've found that in more complex projects you often have multiple loose ends to clean up, and I desired a solution that would allow me to properly isolate the responsibility for cleaning up each individual resource into dedicated handlers that would are run in parallel.
diehard solves that problem.
$ npm install diehard
var diehard = ;;diehard;diehard;diehard;diehard;diehard;
In the above example, all five termination handlers will be run (in parallel) before the process exits.
