wga

wga

wga is a small JS function which can wrap a generator or async function to used as request handlers and middlewares in Express. wga.js brought modern async write style to Express

Installing

npm install wga --save

Using with generator

var wga = require("wga")
var app = require("express")()
 
app.get("/books", wga(function*(req, res, next) {
  var books = yield Book.findAll()
  res.send(books)
}))

In the above example, the thrown error will be passed to next, which in Express's case calls the error handling middleware later on. If the generator succeeds, the next callback will not be called.

If you need to, like in middleware handlers, you can always call next yourself:

app.use(wga(function*(req, res, next) {
  var user = yield User.find(req.session.userId)
  if (user == null) return next(new Error("Unauthorized"))
  req.user = user
  next()
}))

Using with async function

app.use(wga(async function(req, res, next) {
  var user = await User.find(req.session.userId)
  if (user == null) return next(new Error("Unauthorized"))
  req.user = user
  next()
}))
 
app.get('/', wga(async function (req, res) {
  let result = await Promise.resolve('Hello world')
  res.send(`${result}\n`)
}))
