Setting a Connect Timeout

Each library has its own, language preferred way, to pass connection options. One of the most common options is a connect timeout. It limits how long it can take to establish a connection to a server. Should multiple URLs be provided, this timeout applies to each cluster member individually. To set the maximum time to connect to a server to 10 seconds:

nc, err := nats.Connect("", nats.Name("API Options Example"), nats.Timeout(10*time.Second))
if err != nil {
defer nc.Close()

// Do something with the connection
