## <a name="introduction"></a> Introduction

Services should exit when asked to or when a no busines logic related error happens. When this happens, chances are the service is still processing some requests. An immediate exit can disrupt this requests and cause (specially in non-transacting environments like microservices) data inconsistencies.

Rescue-parachute helps to stop the execution in an ordered manner. For example, stopping the web server from receiving new requests, then the database connection and finally closing the process.

## <a name="installing"></a> Installing

npm install --save bernard

## <a name="usage"></a> Usage

Here you have a illustrative example on how to use it with Express:

const express = require('express');
const app = express();
const server = app.listen(9000);

const Bernard = require('bernard');
const bernard = new Bernard();

    title: 'Express Server',
    handler: function() {
        return server.close();

More examples available in `docs/examples` directory.

## <a name="faq"></a> Frequently Asked Questions

### Should I use it in my project?

Probably not. At least, not yet. I usually follow __semver__ for modules versioning and while it is at 0.x.x you can expect breaking changes.

### This project documentation sucks

Yes, I know. Unfortunately I have limited time resources. Feel free to open a issue or sumbit a pull request if you can help me improving this.

### Who draw the Saint Bernard?

I am unable to draw a circle. Gladly, my girlfriend, Maria Bonete, has more artistical skills. She did it.
