Base class for easily creating meaningful and quiet by default Error classes.

code climate standard code style travis build status coverage status dependency status

Install

npm i kind-error --save

Features

  • You can customize error name with name property in options object.
  • By default won't have stack property in the composed error object.
  • You should pass showStack: true in options if you want stacktraces.
  • Composes meaningful error output if actual and expected given.
  • If actual and expected is given, will compose message automatically.

Usage

For more use-cases see the tests

const KindError = require('kind-error')

KindError

Initialize KindError class with message and options.

Params

Example

const err = new KindError('msg', {
  showStack: true,
  custom: 123
})
 
console.log(err) // => [KindError: msg]
console.log(err.custom) // => 123
console.log(err.stack) // => error stack trace

Or if you give actual and expected it will make default message. See this example.

const assert = require('assert')
const err = new KindError({
  actual: [1, 2, 3],
  expected: {foo: 'bar'}
})
 
assert.deepEqual(err.actual, [1, 2, 3])
assert.deepEqual(err.expected, {foo: 'bar'})
assert.strictEqual(err.stack, undefined)
assert.strictEqual(err.type.actual, 'array')
assert.strictEqual(err.type.expected, 'object')
assert.strictEqual(err.inspect.actual, '[ 1, 2, 3 ]')
assert.strictEqual(err.inspect.expected, '{ foo: \'bar\' }')
assert.strictEqual(err.message, 'expect `object`, but `array` given')

Example AppError

Here we show how to create new error class

var util = require('util')
var KindError = require('kind-error')
 
function AppError () {
  KindError.apply(this, arguments)
  this.name = 'AppError'
}
 
util.inherits(AppError, KindError)
 
AppError.prototype.foo = function () {
  return 123
}
 
var err = new AppError('foo bar', {baz: 'qux'})
//=> err
// err.name => 'AppError'
// err.message => 'foo bar'
// err.baz => 'qux'
// err.foo() => 123

  • abbrev-kindof: Use abbreviations for checking type of given value. Like kindof(val, 'soa') to check that value is string, object or array.
  • assert-kindof: Check native type of the given value and throw TypeError if not okey. Expressive, elegant, behavior-driven API, good descriptive default error messages, simple and clean syntax.
  • is-kindof: Check type of given javascript value. Support promises, generators, streams, and native types. Thin wrapper around kind-of module.
  • kind-of-extra: Extends kind-of type check utility with support for promises, generators, streams and errors. Like kindof(Promise.resolve(1)) //=> 'promise' and etc.
  • kind-of-types: List of all javascript types. Used and useful for checking, validation, sanitizing and testing. Like isStream, isPromise, isWeakset and etc.
  • error-base: Create custom Error classes.
