Package description

What is nice-try?

The nice-try npm package is a utility module that provides a simple way to attempt executing a function that might or might not throw an error without having to use try-catch blocks explicitly. It is designed to be a minimalistic and straightforward tool for safe function execution.

What are nice-try's main functionalities?

Safe Function Execution

This feature allows you to execute a function and if it throws an error, nice-try will catch it and return undefined instead of letting the error propagate. This is useful when you want to attempt an operation but don't want to handle the error explicitly.

const niceTry = require('nice-try');

const result = niceTry(() => {
  // Potentially risky operation
  return 'Operation successful';
});

console.log(result); // Outputs: 'Operation successful' or undefined if an error occurred

What others say

This module is a controversial thing and people like to get mad about it. I decided to give those people a voice. Here's what they're saying.

fundamentally inane

the worst Javascript library […] in several categories

how is this a thing

This is blowing my mind

a shit-tastic try-catch alias

I assumed every commit was a joke, but after researching the maintainer a bit I'm not sure it is...
