lob-typescript-sdk

semantic-release: angular

Typescript SDK for the Lob.com API. See the full Lob.com API documentation here.

Getting Started

Registration

First, you will need to first create an account at Lob.com and obtain your Test and Live API Keys.

Once you have created an account, you can access your API Keys from the Settings Panel.

Installation

lob-typescript-sdk can be installed through the npm:

$ npm i @lob/lob-typescript-sdk

Examples

First API Calls

import { Configuration, AddressesApi } from "@lob/lob-typescript-sdk";
const config: Configuration = new Configuration({
  username: "<<YOUR API KEY HERE>>",
});

const addressApi = new AddressesApi(config);

try {
  const addressCreate = new AddressEditable({
    name: "Thing T. Thing",
    address_line1: "1313 CEMETERY LN",
    address_city: "WESTFIELD",
    address_state: "NJ",
    address_zip: "07090",
  });

  const myAddress = await addressApi.create(addressCreate);
  const myAddressFromApi = await addressApi.get(myAddress.id);
  const addressList = await addressApi.list(3); // lists up to 3 addresses
} catch (err: any) {
  console.error(err);
}

API Documentation

The full and comprehensive documentation of Lob's APIs is available here.

Supported Node.js Versions

Our client libraries follow the Node.js release schedule. This package is compatible with all current active and maintenance versions of Node.js. If you are using a version that is not listed as an active or maintenance version we recommend that you switch to an actively supported LTS version.

Any support or compatability with versions of Node.js not listed as active or maintenance is on a best-efforts basis.

Testing

Unit Tests

To run unit tests:

$ npm test

Integration Tests

Integration tests run against a live deployment of the Lob API and require multiple valid API keys with access to specific features. As such, it is not expected that these tests will pass for every user in every environment.

To run integration tests:

$ LOB_API_LIVE_KEY=<<API KEY 1>> LOB_API_LIVE_KEY=<< API KEY 2>> npm run test:integration

A cleaner alternative if you are going to run integration tests frequently

Run this the first time:

$ echo "LOB_API_LIVE_KEY=<<API KEY 1>>\nLOB_API_LIVE_KEY=<< API KEY 2>>" > LOCAL.env

Then, to run the integration tests:

$ env $(cat LOCAL.env) npm run test:integration
