import { withRetries } from '@dr.pogodin/react-utils';

withRetries(action, maxRetries = 5, interval = 1000): Promise

Attempts to perform the given asynchronous action up to maxRetries times, with the given interval [ms] between attempts. If an attempt is successful the output Promise is immediately resolved to the action result, and the function exits without further attempts. If all allowed attempts failed the output Promise rejects with the error capture in the last attempt.

Arguments & Result

  • action - function - An asynchronous operation.
  • maxRetries = 5 - number - Optional. Maximum number of attempts. Defaults 5.
  • interval = 1000 - number - Optional The interval between attempts in milliseconds. Defaults 1000 (1s).
  • Returns Promise - Resolves to the result of the first successful attempt (without any further attempts after the success); or rejects with the error thrown from the last allowed, and failed attempt.

// After 1s delay it prints: "success".
