Speaking of good error handling. Have you or your mates/colleagues thought much about good/best practices around this? Besides the fact that itโ€™s a bit of an โ€œart formโ€ โ€“ So is good Unit Testing really and even designing good interfaces.

For example, how much context to provide? Should you always wrap the underlying error? Is it always useful to bubble errors up the stack? Iโ€™m not even sure myself, but one thing that does come to mind is to avoid repeating the same error as they bubble up the stack. I donโ€™t know how to define this clearly though in a set of examples and best practices like Jessica Black has done so eloquently in her article (yet)

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Yeah completely agree on good error handling and messages. I think Iโ€™ve personally done a poor job on this with yarnd for example and probably ended up with logging and errors that were a bit too verbose and maybe too wrapped and redundant.
