#pushbullet.js

There have been many server based PushBullet wrappers such as node-pushbullet-api, but none of them worked on the browser side of things. If someone is writing a web app that involves pushing, they either were forced to go through the server, or reinvent the wheel on the browser. Not anymore! Enter pushbullet.js


pushbullet.js is a convenient wrapper for the PushBullet API with no outside dependencies and no requirements for the user other than a modern web browser such as Chrome, Safari, mobile browsers, or Internet Explorer > 10. Support for previous versions of IE is welcome in a pull request, or until then, get your users to upgrade to an actual browser.

All methods exposed by this wrapper are optionally asynchronous. To use the methods asynchronously, simply supply a callback with the two arguments of err and res as the final argument to the function call. If you'd rather use things synchronously, simply ommit the callback and the function will work as expected.

Results or return values will nearly always be JSONified. The keys can be found at the corresponding PushBullet API links. Return values are copied from the previously mentioned PushBullet API documentation.

NOTE: This is licensed under the GPL. If that does not work, feel free to contact me and I'm sure we can work something out. If this code is used, I would appreciate if you let me know, and if possible, contributing any improvements that you made via a pull request.

Include this library by inserting the following before your code in the HTML (or by your other favorite way of loading scripts)

<script src="http://alexschneider.github.io/pushbullet-js/pushbullet.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

##Methods Exposed by this Wrapper NOTE: Before using any methods, PushBullet.APIKey MUST be set. Otherwise an exception will be thrown. Example:

PushBullet.APIKey = "<your api key here>";

PushBullet.push

PushBullet.push(pushType, devId, email, data, callback) - pushes either a note, link, address, or list to a PushBullet device.

  • pushType - either 'note', 'link', 'address', or 'list'. For file, use PushBullet.pushFile.
  • devId - the ID of the device to push to. Available device IDs can be found by using PushBullet.devices. Either devId or email can be used, not both.
  • email - the email address of the contact to push to. Available contacts can be found with PushBullet.contacts. Either devId or email can be used, not both.
  • data - the information to push. Expects a JSONified version of the type parameters here.
  • callback - Optional callback that expects an err and a res parameter.

If neither devId nor email are supplied, all devices will be pushed to.

Example for synchronous:

var res = PushBullet.push("note", "<your device here", null, {title: "<your title here>", body: "<your body here>"});
console.log(res);

JSFiddle

Example for asynchronous:

PushBullet.push("link", null, "<your friend's email here>", {title: "<your title here>", url: "<your url here>", body: "<your optional body here>"}, function(err, res) {
    if(err) {
        throw err;
    } else {
        console.log(res);
    }
});

JSFiddle

Example return value:

{
    "iden":"ubdpjxxxOK0sKG",
    "type":"note",
    "title":"Note title",
    "body":"Note body",
    "created":1399253701.9746201,
    "modified":1399253701.9744401,
    "active":true,
    "dismissed":false,
    "owner_iden":"ubd",
    "target_device_iden":"ubddjAy95rgBxc",
    "sender_iden":"ubd",
    "sender_email":"ryan@pushbullet.com"
    "sender_email_normalized":"ryan@pushbullet.com",
    "receiver_iden":"ubd",
    "receiver_email":"ryan@pushbullet.com",
    "receiver_email_normalized":"ryan@pushbullet.com"
}

PushBullet.pushFile

PushBullet.pushFile(devId, email, fileHandle, body, callback) - Pushes a file from an HTML form element

  • devId - the ID of the device to push to. Available device IDs can be found by using PushBullet.devices. Either devId or email can be used, not both.
  • email - the email address of the contact to push to. Available contacts can be found with PushBullet.contacts. Either devId or email can be used, not both.
  • fileHandle - the variable that gets returned when selecting an input of type file.
  • body - optional body to be sent with the file.
  • callback - Optional callback that expects an err and a res parameter.

NOTE: Because of the large amount of data being transmitted and the fact that doing this synchronously will freeze up the entire web page, asynchronous is strongly recommended.

Example for synchronous:

var file = document.getElementById('files')[0];
var res = PushBullet.pushFile("<your device id here>", null, "<optional message here>");
console.log(res);

JSFiddle

Example for asynchronous:

var file = document.getElementById('files')[0];
PushBullet.pushFile("<your device id here>", null, "<optional message here>", function(err, res) {
    if(err) {
        throw err;
    } else {
        console.log(res);
    }
});

Example return value: Check the PushBullet.push example.


PushBullet.deletePush

PushBullet.deletePush(pushId, callback) - Deletes a push given the ID of a push.

Example for asynchronous

PushBullet.pushHistory(function(err, res) {
    if(err) {
        throw err;
    } else {
        var pushId = res.pushes[0].iden;
        PushBullet.deletePush(pushId, function(err2, res2) {
            console.log(res2);
        });
    }
});

Example return value:

{}

PushBullet.pushHistory

PushBullet.pushHistory(callback) - Retrieves all the pushes that have been made to PushBullet

  • modifiedAfter - Optional parameter for the unixtime lower bound to look for (upper bound being Date.now())
  • Cursor - optional cursor. Check to see if your response contains the cursor key, and if it does, supply this.
  • callback - Optional callback that expects an err and a res parameter.

Example for synchronous:

var res = PushBullet.pushHistory();
console.log(res);

Example for asynchronous:

PushBullet.pushHistory(function(err, res) {
