#Turntable API

A simple nodejs wrapper for the turntable API. You'll need to find your AUTH, USERID and ROOMID information with this bookmarklet.


npm install ttapi

If you are having problems with npm (like with Windows nodejs or portable versions), just clone the repo and edit the templates in the 'examples' folder!


Chat bot

This bot responds to anybody who writes "/hello" in the chat.

var Bot = require('ttapi');
var bot = new Bot(AUTH, USERID, ROOMID);

bot.on('speak', function (data) {
   // Respond to "/hello" command
   if (data.text.match(/^\/hello$/)) {
      bot.speak('Hey! How are you @'' ?');


This bot logs the room activity in the console.

var Bot    = require('ttapi');
var AUTH   = 'auth+live+xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx';
var USERID = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx';
var ROOMID = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx';

var bot = new Bot(AUTH, USERID);

bot.on('ready',        function (data) { bot.roomRegister(ROOMID); });
bot.on('roomChanged',  function (data) { console.log('The bot has changed room.', data); });

bot.on('speak',        function (data) { console.log('Someone has spoken', data); });
bot.on('update_votes', function (data) { console.log('Someone has voted',  data); });
bot.on('registered',   function (data) { console.log('Someone registered', data); });

Dynamic bot

REPL allows you to dynamically call the bot functions and modify his variables during his execution.

var Bot  = require('ttapi')
  , repl = require('repl');

var bot = new Bot(AUTH, USERID, ROOMID);
repl.start('> ') = bot;

// ...


bot.debug = true;

That will print on the terminal all the data that you get and all the data that you send.
