What is it

TryOr is a simple utility function that can be used to use execute code within a supercharged, one-line try catch block.

How does it work

TryOr is just a function that has two parameters:

  1. a function to execute
  2. (optional) either a fallback value, or a fallback function. Default is null.
const result = tryOr(() => mightThrowAnError(), 'hello')

// result is 'hello';
const result = tryOr(
    () => mightThrowAnError(),
    (error) => {
        return 'hi';

// result is 'hi';
