Package ergo provides better errors for Go.

    // TrivialSeverity can be safely ignored, used for informative errors
    // that don't have a meaningful impact on program execution. For example, a
    // failed HTTP request to a remote API that will be retried multiple times.

func AddTemplate Uses

func AddTemplate(name string, template Template) error

AddTemplate adds a template to the package template registry. It is an error to register two templates by the same name.

type Context Uses

type Context interface {
    Error() string
    AddData(key string, data Data)

Context is what actually implements the standard library error interface. Before returning a Context, optionally call AddContextData to provide additional information that is available in the Error method for printing. Note that once you return a Context as a generic error, you will lose the ability to add more data to the error (since objects that implement error don't necessarily implement Context). However, since you've got a generic 'error', you could conceivably use a template's Enhance method on it. There's likely to be virtually no situations where this is advisable.

type ContextData Uses

type ContextData struct {
    Key  string
    Data Data

type Data Uses

type Data interface{}

type DataMap Uses

type DataMap map[string]Data

type Error Uses

type Error struct {
    OriginalError string       `json:"original_error,omitempty"`
    Data          ErrorDataMap `json:"data,omitempty"`

func (*Error) AddData Uses

func (self *Error) AddData(key string, data Data)

func (*Error) Error Uses

func (self *Error) Error() string

type ErrorDataMap Uses

type ErrorDataMap DataMap // alias preserves backwards compatibility for builtin

type ErrorTemplate Uses

type ErrorTemplate struct {
    Id           string `json:"id"`
    Severity     uint8  `json:"severity"`
    Message      string `json:"message"`
    Category     string `json:"category,omitempty"`
    OutputFormat string `json:"-"`

func (*ErrorTemplate) Enhance Uses

func (self *ErrorTemplate) Enhance(err error, data ...*ContextData) Context

Enhance creates a new Context from a provided error and template. This allows for the creation of enhanced errors from basic ones.

func (*ErrorTemplate) Render Uses

func (self *ErrorTemplate) Render(data ...*ContextData) Context

Render dumps the Template's information into a Context, optionally tacking on additional data before returning the Context.

type Template Uses

type Template interface {
    Render(...*ContextData) Context
    Enhance(error, ...*ContextData) Context

Templates can be declared as package-scoped globals and render them as needed, optionally inflating the error with any extra data you want to appear in the Error() output of the resulting Context.

func GetTemplate Uses

func GetTemplate(name string) Template

GetTemplate returns a template registered by AddTemplate, if it exists.
