Efficient Retry and Delay Handling
Summary of my bookmarked Github repositories from Feb 8th, 2017
Backoff for Node.js is a library that provides Fibonacci and exponential backoff functionality for Node.js applications. It offers a convenient way to handle retries and delays in sensitive operations such as connecting to a database or making API calls. The library allows you to instantiate a Backoff object using predefined factory methods and provides event handlers for backoff start and end events. It also supports functional usage to avoid boilerplate code when invoking asynchronous functions in a backoff loop. Backoff objects can be reset and reused, and there is an API available for customization. The library is licensed under the MIT license.
