A helper package for adding lifecycle hooks before or after method calls on an object.
VoltronHooks allows you to add async, promise based lifecycle hooks (before/after calls) to any method that returns a promise:
- beforeHooks are executed before a method call
- afterHooks are executed after a method call
- errors in before hooks prevent execution of the called method
- beforeHooks return the original method's promise; after hooks return a promise from the hook itself
VoltronHooks are used by VoltronModels and VoltronAdapters to add methods like beforeSave, beforeUpdate, afterCreate, etc. But VoltronHooks can be applied to any object, independent of whether other Voltron components are used.
