How do you prevent/fix callback hell?

The three ways to prevent/fix callback hell are:

  • Handle every single error
  • Keep your code shallow
  • Modularize – split the callbacks into smaller, independent functions that can be called with some parameters then joining them to achieve desired results.

The first level of improving the code above might be:

var logError = function(error){
updateTransaction = function(t){
query(“UPDATE transactions SET value = ” + (t.value*0.1) + ” WHERE id=” +, logError);
handleTransactions = function(transactions){
handleClient = function(id){
query(“SELECT * FROM transactions WHERE clientId=” + id, handleTransactions);

query(“SELECT clientId FROM clients WHERE clientName=’picanteverde’;”,handleClient);

You can also use Promises, Generators and Async functions to fix callback hell.
