    Execute a callback when a request closes, finishes, or errors.

    Install

    $ npm install finished

    Uses

    This is useful for cleaning up streams. For example, you want to destroy any file streams you create on socket errors otherwise you will leak file descriptors.

    This is required to fix what many perceive as issues with node's streams. Relevant:

    API

    finished(response, callback)

    var onFinished = require('finished')
     
    onFinished(res, function (err) {
      // do something maybe
    })

    Examples

    The following code ensures that file descriptors are always closed once the response finishes.

    Node / Connect / Express

    var onFinished = require('finished')
     
    function (req, res, next) {
      var stream = fs.createReadStream('thingie.json')
      stream.pipe(res)
      onFinished(res, function (err) {
        stream.destroy()
      })
    }

    Koa

    function* () {
      var stream = this.body = fs.createReadStream('thingie.json')
      onFinished(this, function (err) {
        stream.destroy()
      })
    }
