electron-unhandled

Catch unhandled errors and promise rejections in your Electron app

You can use this module directly in both the main and renderer process.

Install

$ npm install electron-unhandled

Requires Electron 5 or later.

Usage

const unhandled = require('electron-unhandled');

unhandled();

API

unhandled(options?)

You probably want to call this both in the main process and any renderer processes to catch all possible errors.

options

Type: object

logger

Type: Function
Default: console.error

Custom logger that receives the error.

Can be useful if you for example integrate with Sentry.

showDialog

Type: boolean
Default: Only in production

Present an error dialog to the user.

reportButton

Type: Function
Default: undefined

When specified, the error dialog will include a Report… button, which when clicked, executes the given function with the error as the first argument.

const unhandled = require('electron-unhandled');
const {openNewGitHubIssue, debugInfo} = require('electron-util');

unhandled({
	reportButton: error => {
		openNewGitHubIssue({
			user: 'sindresorhus',
			repo: 'electron-unhandled',
			body: `\`\`\`\n${error.stack}\n\`\`\`\n\n---\n\n${debugInfo()}`
		});
	}
});

Example of how the GitHub issue will look like.

unhandled.logError(error, [options])

Log an error. This does the same as with caught unhandled errors.

It will use the same options specified in the unhandled() call or the defaults.

error

Type: Error

Error to log.

options
