    p-timeout

    Timeout a promise after a specified amount of time

    Install

    $ npm install p-timeout
    

    Usage

    import {setTimeout} from 'timers/promises';
    import pTimeout from 'p-timeout';
    
    const delayedPromise = setTimeout(200);
    
    await pTimeout(delayedPromise, 50);
    //=> [TimeoutError: Promise timed out after 50 milliseconds]

    API

    pTimeout(input, milliseconds, message?, options?)

    pTimeout(input, milliseconds, fallback?, options?)

    Returns a decorated input that times out after milliseconds time. It has a .clear() method that clears the timeout.

    If you pass in a cancelable promise, specifically a promise with a .cancel() method, that method will be called when the pTimeout promise times out.

    input

    Type: Promise

    Promise to decorate.

    milliseconds

    Type: number

    Milliseconds before timing out.

    Passing Infinity will cause it to never time out.

    message

    Type: string | Error
    Default: 'Promise timed out after 50 milliseconds'

    Specify a custom error message or error.

    If you do a custom error, it's recommended to sub-class pTimeout.TimeoutError.

    fallback

    Type: Function

    Do something other than rejecting with an error on timeout.

    You could for example retry:

    import {setTimeout} from 'timers/promises';
    import pTimeout from 'p-timeout';
    
    const delayedPromise = () => setTimeout(200);
    
    await pTimeout(delayedPromise(), 50, () => {
    	return pTimeout(delayedPromise(), 300);
    });

    options

    Type: object

    customTimers

    Type: object with function properties setTimeout and clearTimeout

    Custom implementations for the setTimeout and clearTimeout functions.

    Useful for testing purposes, in particular to work around sinon.useFakeTimers().

    Example:

    import {setTimeout} from 'timers/promises';
    import pTimeout from 'p-timeout';
    
    const originalSetTimeout = setTimeout;
    const originalClearTimeout = clearTimeout;
    
    sinon.useFakeTimers();
    
    // Use `pTimeout` without being affected by `sinon.useFakeTimers()`:
    await pTimeout(doSomething(), 2000, undefined, {
    	customTimers: {
    		setTimeout: originalSetTimeout,
    		clearTimeout: originalClearTimeout
    	}
    });

    pTimeout.TimeoutError

    Exposed for instance checking and sub-classing.
