Simple error-handling library

ees: Simple Error-Handling Library

ees is a simple error-handling library. Rather than provide its own error-related types, it uses std::error::Error and provides a number of convenience functions.

use std::io::Read;

// Use ees::Error for arbitrary owned errors
// You can also use ees::Result<()> as a shorthand
fn do_work() -> Result<(), ees::Error> {
    let mut file = std::fs::File::open("hello world")?;
    let mut contents = String::new();
    file.read_to_string(&mut contents)?;
    if contents.is_empty() {
        // Construct an error on the fly
        ees::bail!("file is empty");

// Take an arbitrary borrowed error
fn take_an_error(error: ees::ErrorRef<'_>) {
    // Print the complete error chain
    println!("Error: {}", ees::print_error_chain(error));

// Use ees::MainResult to automatically create nicely-
// formatted error messages in the main() function
fn main() -> ees::MainResult {
        // add additional context
        |e| ees::wrap!(e, "failed to do work"))?;
