Codebits API Node.js Module Wrapper

This is the Codebits API (https://codebits.eu/s/api) Node.js Module Wrapper to speed up for development during that 72 hour straight hackathon we know and love!

Node-Codebits

Badgers

NPM

Gitter Dependency Status

Installation

  1. $ npm install codebits

Usage

var codebits = require('codebits');
codebits.auth.logIn('USERNAME', 'PASSWORD', function (err, token){
  // codebits module will cache the token
  codebits.users.getUserbyID('USERID', function(err, user){
    console.log(user);
  });

});
// but if you want to use another auth token, you can
codebits.users.getUserbyID('USERID', anotherToken, function(err, user){
  console.log(user);
});

Disclaimer

This module was built in a very quick 'hacky' manner, it has tests, which is a good thing, but it is not bullet proof, if you find any bug or a better way to do things, we accept happily pull requests.

Big thanks to axfcampos who liked the idea and offered his time to implement several of the functionalities.
