Provides a safe way to execute functions asynchronously, recovering them in case of panic. It also provides an error stack aiming to facilitate fail causes discovery, and a simple way to control execution flow without WaitGroup.


var (
    user   User
    songs  []Songs
    photos []Photos

err := async.Run(ctx,
    func(ctx context.Context) error {
        user, err = user.Get(ctx, id)
        return err
    func(ctx context.Context) error {
        songs, err = song.GetByUserID(ctx, id)
        return err
    func(ctx context.Context) error {
        photos, err = photo.GetByUserID(ctx, id)
        return err

if err != nil {

You can also limit the number of asynchronous tasks

runner := async.NewRunner(tasks...).WithLimit(3)
if err := runner.Run(ctx); err != nil {

func Run

func Run(parent context.Context, tasks ...Task) error

Run provides a safe way to execute Task functions asynchronously, recovering if they panic and provides all error stack aiming to facilitate fail causes discovery


type Runner

type Runner struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields

func NewRunner

func NewRunner(tasks ...Task) *Runner

NewRunner creates a new task manager to control async functions.

func (*Runner) AllErrors

func (r *Runner) AllErrors() []error

AllErrors returns all errors reported by functions

func (*Runner) Run

func (r *Runner) Run(parentCtx context.Context) error

Run starts the task manager and returns the first error or nil if succeed

func (*Runner) WaitErrors

func (r *Runner) WaitErrors() *Runner

WaitErrors tells the runner to wait for the response from all functions instead of cancelling them all when the first error occurs.

func (*Runner) WithLimit

func (r *Runner) WithLimit(limit int) *Runner

WithLimit defines a limit for concurrent tasks execution

type Task

type Task func(context.Context) error

Task ...
