Installation

$ npm install node-xero

Private Usage

var PrivateApplication = require('node-xero').PrivateApplication;
var privateApp = new PrivateApplication({ consumerSecret: 'AAAAA', consumerKey: 'BBBBBB', privateKeyPath: './cert/privatekey.pem'});

Public Usage

var PublicApplication = require('node-xero').PublicApplication;
var publicApp = new PublicApplication({ consumerSecret: 'AAAAA', consumerKey: 'BBBBBB'});

Partner Usage

var ParnetApplication = require('node-xero').PartnerApplication;

Examples

Efficient paging:

privateApp.core.contacts.getContacts({ pager: {start:1 /* page number */, callback:onContacts}})
    .fail(function(err)
    {
        console.log('Oh no, an error');
    })

/* Called per page */
function onContacts(err, response, cb)
{
    var contacts = response.data;
    if (response.finished) // finished paging
        ....
    cb(); // Async support
}

Filter support: Modified After

// No paging
publicApp.core.contacts.getContacts({ modifiedAfter: new Date(2013,1,1) })
    .then(function(contacts)
    {
        _.each(contacts,  function(contact)
        {
            // Do something with contact
        })
    })
