    Errors

    It is recommended in nodejs to divide all error in to two categories: Operational errors and programmer errors https://www.joyent.com/node-js/production/design/errors

    Programmer errors

    Programmer errors are bugs in the program. These are things that can always be avoided by changing the code. They can never be handled properly (since by definition the code in question is broken). Examples:

    • tried to read property of "undefined"
    • called an asynchronous function without a callback
    • passed a "string" where an object was expected
    • passed an object where an IP address string was expected

    Operational errors

    Operational errors represent run-time problems experienced by correctly-written programs. These are not bugs in the program. In fact, these are usually problems with the system itself. Examples include:

    • failed to connect to server
    • failed to resolve hostname
    • invalid user input
    • request timeout
    • server returned a 500 response
    • socket hang-up
    • system is out of memory
    • data from some datasource is missing or not as expected

    Examples

    Oops

    import { Oops } from 'oops-error'
     
    export const sendEmail = (email) => {
        if(!isValidEmail(email)) {
            throw new Oops({
                message: 'invalid email',
                category: 'OperationalError',
                context: {
                    email,
                },
            })
        }
        ...
    }

    programmerErrorHandler

    For promise chains we use handling functions in our catch clauses. Example:

    import { programmerErrorHandler } from 'oops-error'
     
    ...
    export const doSomething = (params) => {
        somePromiseFunction().catch(programmerErrorHandler('failed to do something', {params}))
    }
    ...
