API documentation

var chain = require('stack-chain');

When the Error.stack getter is executed, the stack-chain will perform the following:

  1. execute the modifiers attach by chain.extend.
  2. execute the modifiers attach by chain.filter.
  3. execute the formater set by chain.format.replace.

chain.extend.attach(modifier)

chain.filter.attach(modifier)

Will modify the callSite array. Note you shouldn't format the stack trace.

The modifier is a function there takes two arguments error and frames.

  • error is the Error object.
  • frames is an array of callSite objects, see v8 documentation for details.

When the modifier is done, it should return a modified frames array.

chain.filter.attach(function (error, frames) {

    // Filter out traces related to this file
    var rewrite = frames.filter(function (callSite) {
      return (callSite[i].getFileName()[0] !== module.filename);
    });

    return rewrite;
});

chain.extend.deattach(modifier)

chain.filter.deattach(modifier)

Removes a modifier function from the list of modifiers.

var modifier = function () {};

// Attach modifier function
chain.extend.attach(modifier);

// Deattach modifier function
chain.extend.deattach(modifier);

chain.format.replace(formater)

Replaces the default v8 formater. The new formater takes a two arguments error and frames.

  • error is the Error object.
  • callSites is an array of callSite objects, see v8 documentation for details.

When the formater is done, it should return a string. The string will what Error.stack returns.

chain.format.replace(function (error, frames) {
  var lines = [];

  lines.push(error.toString());

  for (var i = 0; i < frames.length; i++) {
    lines.push("    at " + frames[i].toString());
  }

  return lines.join("\n");
});

chain.format.restore()

Will restore the default v8 formater. Note that dude to the nature of v8 Error objects, if one of the getters Error.stack or Error.callSite has already executed, the value of Error.stack won't change.

Error.callSite

Returns the original callSite array.
