Front-End Error Handling

via Front-End Error Handling.

When building a web application, it’s often a little too easy to focus only on the golden path, building and testing only for situations when things go right. Unfortunately, things rarely go right all the time in the real world. Error handling is a vital part of any application’s user experience, and if done well, can leave your users feeling informed and properly considered.

Most errors that an application encounters can be grouped into a few categories:

  • Input Errors: Information provided by the user is unacceptable for some reason. This includes errors from form validation, duplicate actions, uniqueness issues, resources not found, etc.
  • Authorization Errors: A user is attempting to perform an action to which he/she does not have permission.
  • Availability Errors: A resource that is needed to complete the user’s action is unavailable for some reason. This may be expected (scheduled maintenance) or unexpected (server crash!).
  • Unexpected Errors: These are errors that likely indicate a bug in the application, such as unhandled exceptions.

Almost every application will have instances of each of these error categories at some point. Handling each appropriately is key to keeping users who encounter errors from becoming angry users.
