In this example the error() method is used when a chunk could not be transformed.

const transformContent = {
  start() { /* … */ },
  async transform(chunk, controller) {
    try {
      chunk = await applyMyTransformation(chunk);
    } catch (err) {
      controller.error(`Unable to transform chunk: ${err}`);
    }
    // …
  },
  // …
};
