bail

Build Coverage Downloads Size

Throw if given an error.

Contents

What is this?

This package throws a given error.

When should I use this?

Use this package if you’re building some scripts that might theoretically get errors but frequently don’t and you keep writing if (error) throw error over and over again and you’re just really done with that.

Install

This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 12.20+, 14.14+, or 16.0+), install with npm:

npm install bail

In Deno with Skypack:

import {bail} from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/bail@2?dts'

In browsers with Skypack:

<script type="module">
  import {bail} from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/bail@2?min'
</script>

Use

import {bail} from 'bail'

bail()

bail(new Error('failure'))
// Error: failure
//     at repl:1:6
//     at REPLServer.defaultEval (repl.js:154:27)
//     …

API

This package exports the following identifier: bail. There is no default export.

bail(err?)

Throw a given error (Error?).

Types

This package is fully typed with TypeScript. There are no extra exported types.

Compatibility

This package is at least compatible with all maintained versions of Node.js. As of now, that is Node.js 12.20+, 14.14+, and 16.0+. It also works in Deno and modern browsers.

Security

This package is safe.
