Example of using nitroSdk.js

const nitro = require('bbcparse/nitroSdk');
const api = require('bbcparse/nitroApi/api');

const host = '';
const path = api.nitroMasterbrands;

let query = nitro.newQuery();

let options = {};

  // process the response object

Utilities to:

  • fetch API definitions (fetchApis.js)
  • create an OpenAPI 3.0 definition from the Nitro API feed (parseNitroApi.js)

  • show channel (masterbrand) information (nitroChannels.js)

  • show linear service IDs (nitroServices.js)
  • query the configured nitro host and return the response time (nitroPing.js)

  • find images by keyword (imageFinder.js)
  • show information for an image PID (imageInfo.js)
  • show TV iPlayer programme, category or channels information (ibl.js)
