RESTFul api client base object. Usually use by some api client implementation.

Example: gitlab

Install

$ npm install restful-client --save

Usage

var restful = require('restful-client');
var util = require('util');

function Project(client) {
  restful.RESTFulResource.call(this, client, '/projects', 'id');
}
util.inherits(Project, restful.RESTFulResource);

function Gitlab(options) {
  options = options || {};
  options.api = options.api || 'https://gitlab.com/api/v3';
  restful.RESTFulClient.call(this, options);
  this.token = options.token;

  this.addResources({
    projects: Project
  });
}

util.inherits(Gitlab, restful.RESTFulClient);

Gitlab.prototype.setAuthentication = function (req) {
  req.params.data.private_token = req.params.data.private_token || this.token;
  return req;
};

var gitlab = new Gitlab({token: 'your token', requestTimeout: 5000});
gitlab.projects.list({page: 1}, function (err, result) {
  console.log(arguments);
});

RESTFulResource

Every RESTFulResource instance has these methods:

  • constructor
/**
 * RESTFul Resource base class.
 *
 * @param {Client} client RESTful api client instance.
 * @param {String} resourcePath resource url path, e.g.: '/issues'
 * @param {String} idName id name for get one entry, e.g.: 'id', 'name'
 * @param {String} [updateMethod] update http method, default is 'put'
 */
function RESTFulResource(client, resourcePath, idName, updateMethod);
  • get(params, callback)
  • list(params, callback)
  • create(params, callback)
  • update(params, callback)
  • remove(params, callback)

Example

function Project(client) {
  this.constructor.super_.call(this, client, '/projects', 'id');
}
util.inherits(Project, restful.RESTFulResource);
