Diffbot API AS3 client

Introduction

This client is written in pure AS3 with no dependencies from external libraries.

The following products can be called from this client:

  • Article
  • Frontpage
  • Product
  • Image
  • Classifier

Installation

Link your project to the bin/DiffbotAS3Client.swc file and you're done. The process to link a libray file depends on your IDE. Please check the documentation of your IDE.

Configuration

First make sure to import the classes of the library in your code, as below:

import com.diffbot.as3client.DiffbotAS3Client;
import com.diffbot.as3client.events.LoaderEvent;

Then create an instance of the client, passing your developer token: You can obtain a developer token at http://diffbot.com/pricing

var diffbot:DiffbotAS3Client = new DiffbotAS3Client("DIFFBOT_TOKEN");

Then, we can move on to making actual requests.

Usage

Article API

With your client instance, call the getArticle method, passing the URL you want to process:

diffbot.getArticle("http://www.xconomy.com/san-francisco/2012/07/25/diffbot-is-using-computer-vision-to-reinvent-the-semantic-web/");

Listen for the complete event:

diffbot.addEventListener(LoaderEvent.COMPLETE, diffbotCompleteHandler);

And listen for errors:

diffbot.addEventListener(LoaderEvent.IO_ERROR, diffbotErrorHandler);
diffbot.addEventListener(LoaderEvent.SECURITY_ERROR, diffbotErrorHandler);

When the request completes, you can access the results in event.response:

protected function diffbotCompleteHandler(event:LoaderEvent):void
{
	if (event.response.error)
		trace("Error " + event.response.errorCode + ": " + event.response.error);
	else
		trace(event.response.title);
}

And the handler for network and security errors:

protected function diffbotErrorHandler(event:LoaderEvent):void
{
	trace("Error N." + event.response);
}

####Filtering Fields You can filter the fields returned by the API by passing a Vector of String:

diffbot.getImage("http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/iRobot-650-Roomba-Vacuuming-Robot/7886009/product.html", new <String>["title", "images(mime,pixelWidth,pixelHeight)"]);

Please see [Diffbot documentation] for available fields. [Diffbot documentation]:http://www.diffbot.com/products/automatic/

####Timeout You can specify a timeout in milliseconds (by default, there is no timeout):

diffbot.getArticle("http://www.xconomy.com/san-francisco/2012/07/25/diffbot-is-using-computer-vision-to-reinvent-the-semantic-web/",  null, 10000);

####Version The last parameter let you specify the API version, by default it is 2:

diffbot.getArticle("http://www.xconomy.com/san-francisco/2012/07/25/diffbot-is-using-computer-vision-to-reinvent-the-semantic-web/",  null, 0, 1);

Frontpage API

It is similar to the Article API but it doesn't take a fields parameter:

diffbot.getFrontpage("http://www.xconomy.com/san-francisco/2012/07/25/diffbot-is-using-computer-vision-to-reinvent-the-semantic-web/");

Product API

It is similar to the Article API:

diffbot.getProduct("http://www.xconomy.com/san-francisco/2012/07/25/diffbot-is-using-computer-vision-to-reinvent-the-semantic-web/");

Image API

It is similar to the Article API:

diffbot.getImage("http://www.xconomy.com/san-francisco/2012/07/25/diffbot-is-using-computer-vision-to-reinvent-the-semantic-web/");

Classifier API

It is similar to the Article API but it doesn't take a timeout parameter:

diffbot.getClassifier("http://www.xconomy.com/san-francisco/2012/07/25/diffbot-is-using-computer-vision-to-reinvent-the-semantic-web/");
