Usage

Create a reconnect instance that keeps reconnecting over tcp:

var inject = require('reconnect-core');
var net = require('net');

// build you own reconnect module
var reconnect = inject(function () {
  // arguments are what you passed to .connect
  // this is the reconnect instance
  return net.connect.apply(null, arguments);
});

var re = reconnect({}, function (stream) {
  // stream = the stream you should consume 
})
.on('connect', function (con) {
  // con = underlying connection  
})
.on('reconnect', function (n, delay) {
  // n = current number of reconnect  
  // delay = delay used before reconnect
})
.on('disconnect', function (err) {
  // err = possible error  
})
.connect(port)

// disconnect
re.disconnect();

Available implementations

Installation

With npm do:

npm install reconnect-core

Kudos

This has been refactored out of dominictarr's reconnect module.
