API

The API interface which helps you include the check into your library is kind of new. If you have suggestions for improvements feel free to open an issue.

const checker = require('ikea-availability-checker');

(async function() {
    const result = await checker.availability('394', '00501436');
    console.log('RESULT', result);
})();

Checkout more examples in the examples directory.

Development

Requirements

  • nodejs for version info check .nvmrc. it is strongly recommended to use either nvm and the same node version or the docker container as a development environment

Debug

Node provides a simple way to debug all HTTP-related requests and responses using NODE_DEBUG:

NODE_DEBUG=http npm run start

Testing

The project has a preconfigured test runner mocha. Test coverage is not good.

Running all tests will also create coverage reports shown after the test results.

npm run test

TDD

npm run tdd

Run Specific tests

run test -- --grep="stock reporter"

Smoke Testing

Two shell scripts can be used for testing the different output formats and all or some countries in the "/scripts" directory.
