  1. Another way to handle the try catch if/else is to use the await keyword but use .catch on that promise if you don’t want the outer try catch involved. You can also handle it in the .catch and also re throw it if you would want to halt the execution flow.

    try {
    // business logic includes exception so nds particular handling
    const data = await something()
    .catch(th => {
    // process exception
    // rethrow if some condition
    });
    // only caught by outer bc it’s a zero sum expectation for example
    const more = await someone();
    } catch (th) {
    // handle th
    }

  2. The approach is similar to monad-transformer TaskEither

    https://gcanti.github.io/fp-ts/modules/TaskEither.ts.html

    Actually there is a significant difference between Either.Left and Exception.

    The first one should be used for “recovable” errors, the second one — for unrecoverable.

    So it means we don’t need to avoid throwing an exception in all cases, replacing them with error-result tuple. And the promiser can help with that.

    Nevertheless, the movement to functional programming is great.
