Better error handling with unknown type in TypeScript
const hasErrorCode = (error: unknown): error is { code: string } => {
return !!error && typeof error === 'object' && 'code' in error && typeof error.code === 'string';
};
try {
throw {code: 72};
} catch (error: unknown) {
if (hasErrorCode(error)) {
console.error(`Failed with error code "${error.code}".`);
}
}
