Introduction

Build Status

Tolerance is a node.js module that wraps a function with retry functionality by passing a timeout. So the function will be more tolerant.

You can use it for example if you want to connect to a database that is not running immediately...

Installation

$ npm install tolerance

Usage

var tolerate = require('tolerance');

tolerate(
    function(callback) {
        db.connect(callback);
    },
    1500,
    function(err, res) {
        // If the db comes up after 800 ms
        // this callback will be called as the connection
        // would have been established immediately.
        //
        // If the db does not come up within the 1500 ms
        // this callback will be called with the appropriate error.
        //
        // In the background 'tolerance' will retry to connect to the db.
    }
);

Use own retry indication

var tolerate = require('tolerance');

tolerate(
    function(callback) {
        db.connect(callback);
    },
    1500,
    function(err) { // should return true if you want to trigger a retry...
        if (err === 'not reached') {
            return true;
        } else {
            return false;
        }
    },
    function(err, res) {
        // If the db comes up after 800 ms
        // this callback will be called as the connection
        // would have been established immediately.
        //
        // If the db does not come up within the 1500 ms
        // this callback will be called with the appropriate error.
        //
        // In the background 'tolerance' will retry to connect to the db.
    }
);
