Function timeout will timeout an asynchronous computation after specified amount of time. It requires two arguments, a time tuple representing the duration for which the computation is allowed to run and asynchronous computation, which can be obtain by an async function for example. If the value is not computed in the specified timeout, a :timeout exception is raised.


timeout (:seconds, 5) (async \-> :something)

It is recommended to always wrap a function passed as the second argument using async function, this way you can ensure that the function is being calculated asynchronously and the timeout can be applied.
