NPM

Installation | Constructor | Messaging | Voice | Verify | Number Insight | Applications | Management | Redact | JWT (JSON Web Token)

Installation

npm install nexmo

Constructor

const Nexmo = require('nexmo');

const nexmo = new Nexmo({
    apiKey: API_KEY,
    apiSecret: API_SECRET,
    applicationId: APP_ID,
    privateKey: PRIVATE_KEY_PATH,
  }, options);
  • apiKey - API Key from Nexmo.
  • apiSecret - API SECRET from Nexmo.
  • applicationId - The Nexmo Application ID to be used when creating JWTs. Required for voice-related functionality.
  • privateKey - The Private Key to be used when creating JWTs. You can specify the key as any of the following:
    • The private key as a string (It must start with -----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----).
    • A Buffer containing the file contents. Required for voice-related functionality.
    • A path to the key file on disk.
  • options - Additional options for the constructor.

Options are:

{
  // If true, log information to the console
  debug: true|false,
  // append info the the User-Agent sent to Nexmo
  // e.g. pass 'my-app' for /nexmo-node/1.0.0/4.2.7/my-app
  appendToUserAgent: string,
  // Set a custom logger
  logger: {
    log: function() {level, args...}
    info: function() {args...},
    warn: function() {args...}
  },
  // Set a custom timeout for requests to Nexmo in milliseconds. Defaults to the standard for Node http requests, which is 120,000 ms.
  timeout: integer

const Nexmo = require('nexmo');

const jwt = Nexmo.generateJwt('path/to/private.key', {application_id: APP_ID});

Or via a Nexmo instance where your supplied applicationId and privateKey credentials will be used:

const Nexmo = require('nexmo');

const nexmo = new Nexmo({
    apiKey: API_KEY,
    apiSecret: API_SECRET,
    applicationId: APP_ID,
    privateKey: PRIVATE_KEY_PATH,
  });

const jwt = nexmo.generateJwt();

Send TTS Prompt With Confirm

nexmo.voice.sendTTSPromptWithConfirm(<TO_NUMBER>, message ,<MAX_DIGITS>,'<PIN_CODE>',<BYE_TEXT>,<FAILED_TEXT>,options,callback);

Testing

Run:

npm test

Or to continually watch and run tests as you change the code:

npm run-script test-watch

Examples

See examples/README.md.

Also, see the Nexmo Node Quickstarts repo.

Creating your own requests

IMPORTANT

This section uses internal APIs and should not be relied on. We make no guarantees that the interface is stable. Relying on these methods is not recommended for production applications

For endpoints that are not yet implemented, you can use the Nexmo HTTP Client to make requests with the correct authentication method.

In these examples, we assume that you've created a nexmo instance as follows:

const nexmo = new Nexmo({
    apiKey: 'API_KEY',
    apiSecret: 'API_SECRET',
    applicationId: 'APPLICATION_ID',
    privateKey: './private.key',
});
  • If your API endpoint is on api.nexmo.com, use the nexmo.options.api object.
  • If your API endpoint is on rest.nexmo.com, use the nexmo.options.rest object.

Both of these objects expose the following methods:

  • get(path, params, callback, useJwt) (params is the query string to use)
  • post(path, params, callback, useJwt) (params is the POST body to send)
  • postUseQueryString(path, params, callback, useJwt) (params is the query string to use)
  • delete(path, callback, useJwt)

To make a request to api.nexmo.com/v1/calls?status=rejected:

nexmo.options.api.get(
    "/v1/calls",
    {"status": "rejected"},
    function(err, data){
        console.log(err);
        console.log(data);
    },
    true // Use JWT for authentication
);

To make a request to rest.nexmo.com/sms/json?from=Demo&to=447700900000&text=Testing:

nexmo.options.rest.postUseQueryString(
    "/sms/json",
    {"from": "Demo", "to": "447700900000", "text": "Testing"},
    function(err, data){
        console.log(err);
        console.log(data);
    },
    false // Don't use JWT, fall back to API key/secret
);
