bigbluebutton-api-js is a very simple Javascript library that generates links to all methods in BigBlueButton's API. It's written in Coffeescript and should work in the browser or in Node.js applications.


Open example/index.html or check http://mconf.github.com/bigbluebutton-api-js for a quick example of what this lib does.


This library requires:

Once you add these libraries to your page, you can get the links with (code in Coffeescript):

# Create an API object passing the url, the salt and the mobile salt
api = new BigBlueButtonApi("http://test-install.blindsidenetworks.com/bigbluebutton/api/",
                           "8cd8ef52e8e101574e400365b55e11a6", "03b07")

# A hash of parameters.
# The parameter names are the same names BigBlueButton expects to
# receive in the API calls. The lib will make sure that, for each
# API call, only the parameters it support will be used.
params =
  name: "random-9998650"
  meetingID: "random-9998650"
  moderatorPW: "mp"
  attendeePW: "ap"
  welcome: "<br>Welcome to <b>%%CONFNAME%%</b>!"
  attendeePW: "ap"
  fullName: "User 8584148"
  meetingID: "random-9998650"
  moderatorPW: "mp"
  password: "mp"
  publish: false
  random: "416074726"
  record: false
  recordID: "random-9998650"
  voiceBridge: "75858"
urls = api.getUrls(params)

# Will return an object with all URLs, similar to:
    create: "http://test-install.blindsidenetworks.com/bigbluebutton/api/create?name=random-266119&meetingID=random-266119&moderatorPW=mp&attendeePW=ap&welcome=%3Cbr%3EWelcome%20to%20%3Cb%3E%25%25CONFNAME%25%25%3C%2Fb%3E!&voiceBridge=76262&record=false&checksum=6c529b6e31fbce9668fd66d99a09da7a78f4"

At first install Node.js, see package.json for the specific version required.

Install the dependencies with:

npm install -d

Then, to compile the coffee files into javascript, run:

cake build

This will compile all *.coffee files in /src to javascript files in /lib.

To watch for changes and compile the files automatically run:

cake watch
