Emperror: Errors Mentioned in Awesome Go

GitHub Workflow Status Codecov Go Report Card Go Version PkgGoDev FOSSA Status

Drop-in replacement for the standard library errors package and github.com/pkg/errors.

This is a single, lightweight library merging the features of standard library errors package and github.com/pkg/errors. It also backports a few features (like Go 1.13 error handling related features).

Standard library features:

  • New creates an error with stack trace
  • Unwrap supports both Go 1.13 wrapper (interface { Unwrap() error }) and pkg/errors causer (interface { Cause() error }) interface
  • Backported Is and As functions

github.com/pkg/errors features:

  • New, Errorf, WithMessage, WithMessagef, WithStack, Wrap, Wrapf functions behave the same way as in the original library
  • Cause supports both Go 1.13 wrapper (interface { Unwrap() error }) and pkg/errors causer (interface { Cause() error }) interface

Additional features:

  • NewPlain creates a new error without any attached context, like stack trace
  • Sentinel is a shorthand type for creating constant error
  • WithStackDepth allows attaching stack trace with a custom caller depth
  • WithStackDepthIf, WithStackIf, WrapIf, WrapIff only annotate errors with a stack trace if there isn't one already in the error chain
  • Multi error aggregating multiple errors into a single value
  • NewWithDetails, WithDetails and Wrap*WithDetails functions to add key-value pairs to an error
  • Match errors using the match package

Installation

go get emperror.dev/errors

Usage

package main

import "emperror.dev/errors"

// ErrSomethingWentWrong is a sentinel error which can be useful within a single API layer.
const ErrSomethingWentWrong = errors.Sentinel("something went wrong")

// ErrMyError is an error that can be returned from a public API.
type ErrMyError struct {
	Msg string
}

func (e ErrMyError) Error() string {
	return e.Msg
}

func foo() error {
	// Attach stack trace to the sentinel error.
	return errors.WithStack(ErrSomethingWentWrong)
}

func bar() error {
	return errors.Wrap(ErrMyError{"something went wrong"}, "error")
}

func main() {
	if err := foo(); err != nil {
		if errors.Cause(err) == ErrSomethingWentWrong { // or errors.Is(ErrSomethingWentWrong)
			// handle error
		}
	}

	if err := bar(); err != nil {
		if errors.As(err, &ErrMyError{}) {
			// handle error
		}
	}
}

Match errors:

package main

import (
    "emperror.dev/errors"
    "emperror.dev/errors/match"
)

// ErrSomethingWentWrong is a sentinel error which can be useful within a single API layer.
const ErrSomethingWentWrong = errors.Sentinel("something went wrong")

type clientError interface{
    ClientError() bool
}

func foo() error {
	// Attach stack trace to the sentinel error.
	return errors.WithStack(ErrSomethingWentWrong)
}

func main() {
    var ce clientError
    matcher := match.Any{match.As(&ce), match.Is(ErrSomethingWentWrong)}

	if err := foo(); err != nil {
		if matcher.MatchError(err) {
			// you can use matchers to write complex conditions for handling (or not) an error
            // used in emperror
		}
	}
}
