errno exposed

Ever find yourself needing more details about Node.js errors? Me too, so node-errno contains the errno mappings direct from libuv so you can use them in your code.

By errno:

require('errno').errno[3] // → { // "errno": 3, // "code": "EACCES", // "description": "permission denied" // }

By code:

require('errno').code.ENOTEMPTY // → { // "errno": 53, // "code": "ENOTEMPTY", // "description": "directory not empty" // }

Make your errors more descriptive:

var errno = require('errno') function errmsg(err) { var str = 'Error: ' // if it's a libuv error then get the description from errno if (errno.errno[err.errno]) str += errno.errno[err.errno].description else str += err.message // if it's a `fs` error then it'll have a 'path' property if (err.path) str += ' [' + err.path + ']' return str } var fs = require('fs') fs.readFile('thisisnotarealfile.txt', function (err, data) { if (err) console.log(errmsg(err)) })

Use as a command line tool:

~ $ errno 53 { "errno": 53, "code": "ENOTEMPTY", "description": "directory not empty" } ~ $ errno EROFS { "errno": 56, "code": "EROFS", "description": "read-only file system" } ~ $ errno foo No such errno/code: "foo"

Supply no arguments for the full list. Error codes are processed case-insensitive.

You will need to install with npm install errno -g if you want the errno command to be available without supplying a full path to the node_modules installation.

Custom errors

Use errno.custom.createError() to create custom Error objects to throw around in your Node.js library. Create error hierarchies so instanceof becomes a useful tool in tracking errors. Call-stack is correctly captured at the time you create an instance of the error object, plus a cause property will make available the original error object if you pass one in to the constructor.

var create = require('errno').custom.createError var MyError = create('MyError') // inherits from Error var SpecificError = create('SpecificError', MyError) // inherits from MyError var OtherError = create('OtherError', MyError) // use them! if (condition) throw new SpecificError('Eeek! Something bad happened') if (err) return callback(new OtherError(err))

Also available is a errno.custom.FilesystemError with in-built access to errno properties:

fs.readFile('foo', function (err, data) { if (err) return callback(new errno.custom.FilesystemError(err)) // do something else })

The resulting error object passed through the callback will have the following properties: code, errno, path and message will contain a descriptive human-readable message.
