    Seneca

    A Seneca.js decorator that adds a fire-and-forget method.

    Seneca-fire-and-forget

    npm version Dependency Status

    This is a plugin for Seneca that adds a simple .fire(pattern[, cb]) method to your Seneca instance. This acts in a fire-and-forget manner, so this will swallow any errors from the act you called. The callback is optional.

    Example

    var seneca = require('seneca')()
     
    seneca.use(require('fire-and-forget'))
     
    // A basic pattern to use
    seneca.add({ role: 'foo' }, (args, done) => {
      // maybe save args.name in a database?
      done(null, { msg: `hey ${args.name}!` })
    })
     
    // Expected use!, no reply is expected, so callback can be excluded
    seneca.fire({ role: 'foo', name: 'glen' })
     
    // Don't actually need to worry about any error here...
    seneca.fire({ role: 'bar', name: 'glen' })
     
    // Firing and using the reply data
    seneca.fire({ role: 'foo', name: 'glen' }, (err, reply) => {
      if (err) {
        //maybe handle an error if it happens?
      }
      console.log(reply.msg)
    })
     
    // Firing, but no reply to be expected
    seneca.fire({ role: 'bar', name: 'glen' }, (err, reply) => {
      if (err) {
        //maybe handle an error if it happens?
      }
      console.log(reply.msg)
    })
