  • [properties] {Object} - Additional properties (used only if messageOrProperties is string)

Examples

var HttpError = require('http-error-constructor');
 
var err = new HttpError(400);
 
// err.name - 'BadRequest'
// err.statusCode - 400
// err.status - 400
// err.message - 'Bad Request'
 
// name, statusCode and status are non-enumerable and therefore ignored in JSON.stringify(err):
// '{"message": "Bad Request"}'

With custom message and additional properties:

var err = new HttpError(400, 'Validation Failed', {
    fields: {
        phoneNumber: 'Invalid format'
    }
});
 
/* or you can include message in the properties object
var err = new HttpError(400, {
    message: 'Validation Failed',
    fields:  {
        phoneNumber: 'Invalid format'
    }
});
*/
 
// err.statusCode - 400
// err.status - 400
// err.message - 'Validation Failed'
// err.fields - { phoneNumber: 'Invalid format' }
 
// JSON.stringify(err) - '{"message": "Bad Request", "fields": { "phoneNumber": "Invalid format" } }'

Using specific error constructor:

var properties = {
    message: 'Validation Failed',
    fields:  {
        phoneNumber: 'Invalid format'
    }
};
 
var err = new HttpError.BadRequest(properties); // or new HttpError[400](properties)
 
// err instanceof HttpError - true
// err instanceof HttpError.BadRequest - true
// err instanceof HttpError[400] - true

You can use custom status codes:

var err = new HttpError(471, 'Custom Error');
 
// err.name - '471 Error'
// err.statusCode - 471
// err.status - 471
// err.message - 'Custom Error'
