CloudRail SI for node.js

Integrate Multiple Services With Just One API

CloudRail is an API integration solution which abstracts multiple APIs from different providers into a single and universal interface.

--- ---

Learn more about CloudRail at https://cloudrail.com

Full documentation can be found here



With CloudRail, you can easily integrate external APIs into your application. CloudRail provides abstracted interfaces that take several services and then exposes a developer-friendly API that uses common functions between all providers. This means that, for example, upload() works in exactly the same way for Dropbox as it does for Google Drive, OneDrive, and other Cloud Storage Services, and getEmail() works similarly the same way across all social networks.

NPM

npm install cloudrail-si

Advantages of Using CloudRail

  • Consistent Interfaces: As functions work the same across all services, you can perform tasks between services simply.

  • Easy Authentication: CloudRail includes easy ways to authenticate, to remove one of the biggest hassles of coding for external APIs.

  • Switch services instantly: One line of code is needed to set up the service you are using. Changing which service is as simple as changing the name to the one you wish to use.

  • Simple Documentation: There is no searching around Stack Overflow for the answer. The CloudRail Wiki is regularly updated, clean, and simple to use.

  • No Maintenance Times: The CloudRail Libraries are updated when a provider changes their API.

  • Direct Data: Everything happens directly in the Library. No data ever passes a CloudRail server.

NPM

npm install cloudrail-si

Typescript

(this only concerns Typescript users)

The package includes an index.d.ts file. To use the typings provided, include services and types like so:

/// <reference path="node_modules/cloudrail-si/index.d.ts" />

import {PointsOfInterest} from "cloudrail-si/interfaces/PointsOfInterest";
import {Foursquare} from "cloudrail-si/services/Foursquare";
import {POI} from "cloudrail-si/types/POI";

let poi:PointsOfInterest = new Foursquare(null, "[clientID]", "[clientSecret]");

poi.getNearbyPOIs(49.4557091, 8.5279138, 1000, "restaurant", null, (err:Error, pois:POI[]) => {
    if (err) console.log(err);
    console.log("Amount of locations called 'restaurant' in a 1 km radius around the given coordinates: " + pois.length);
});
