AssertionError and AssertionResult classes.

build:? downloads:? devDependencies:none

What is AssertionError?

Assertion Error is a module that contains two classes: AssertionError, which is an instance of an Error, and AssertionResult which is not an instance of Error.

These can be useful for returning from a function - if the function "succeeds" return an AssertionResult and if the function fails return (or throw) an AssertionError.

Both AssertionError and AssertionResult implement the Result interface:

interface Result {
  name: "AssertionError" | "AssertionResult";
  ok: boolean;
  toJSON(...args: unknown[]): Record<string, unknown>;
}

So if a function returns AssertionResult | AssertionError it is easy to check which one is returned by checking either .name or .ok, or check instanceof Error.
