express-errors-handler

1.4.10 • Public • Published

express-errors-handler Circle CI

Some middleware for Express and Node that sets up Raven (or not as appropriate) depending on sensible environment variables.

Installation

npm install --save express-errors-handler

Usage

var express = require('express');
var app = express();
var eeh = require('express-errors-handler')
var errorMiddleware = eeh.middleware;
 
var promiseEnabledApi = require('./my-promise-enabled-api');
 
// A typical route using Promises
app.get('/a-typical-route', function(req, res, next) {
    promiseEnabledApi.getSomeThings()
        .then(function(someThings) {
            res.render(someThings);
        })
 
        // Make sure to end all Promise chains with a `catch`
        // that passes the error to the next middleware
        .catch(next);
});
 
// A typical route with an upstream dependency
app.get('/a-typical-route', function(req, res, next) {
    fetch('http://a.url.i-like')
        .then(function(someThings) {
            res.render(someThings);
        })
        // chosse what status to send when an upstream service errors
        .catch(eeh.upstreamErrorHandler(404))
 
        // Make sure to end all Promise chains with a `catch`
        // that passes the error to the next middleware
        .catch(next);
});
 
 
// Make sure the middleware is added after your routes otherwise you'll lose the errors
app.use(errorMiddleware);
