edge-library

Node module to simplify use of edge.js to wrap .NET libraries.

  1. Allows a group of .NET methods to be instantiated as a block
  2. Methods are lower-cased
  3. Methods are wrapped in $q promises
  4. Arguments are transformed to an array

Installation

npm install edge-library --save

Use

var EdgeLibrary = require('../lib/edge-library').EdgeLibrary;

var test_library_definition = {
    assemblyFile: require('path').join(__dirname, './cs/bin/Release/com.blackpear.edge.test.dll'),
    type: {
        name: 'com.blackpear.edge.test.Lib',
        method: [
            'GetString',
            {
                name: 'GetJsonString',
                return: 'json'
            },
            'Add'
        ]
    }
};

var lib = new EdgeLibrary(test_library_definition);

Method calls use $q promises in place of node.js callbacks:

lib.reflectstring('edge.js rocks!').then(
    function(value){
        console.log(value);
    },
    function(err){
        console.log('ERR:', err);
    }
);

Methods with more than one argument are transformed to an array:

lib.add(1, 2).then(
    function(value){
        console.log(value);
    },
    function(err){
        console.log('ERR:', err);
    }
);
