JSON API

Nodejitsu provides a web API for developers who want to interact with the Nodejitsu platform programatically. This API is built to be RESTful and communicates via JSON. The API is the most low-level way of interacting with the Nodejitsu platform. For most deployment scenarios you should use our command line tool, jitsu, or the online administrative interface.

Jitsu is implemented by wrapping the JSON API.

Authentication

Most of the calls to the API will require that you authenticate using your Nodejitsu account. If you do not have an account it is possible to create one using the user API, the jitsu CLI, or just by visiting http://nodejitsu.com. Currently, we support Basic Authentication. If you haven't used Basic Auth before, don't fret; it's easy!

Here is an example using the command line utility, Curl:

 // get all applications for User "Marak"
 curl --user Marak:password http://nodejitsu.com/apps/marak

Applications

Applications are the core of the Nodejitsu API. Each application represents a set of Node.js code plus a package.json which contains meta-data about the application such as it's dependencies, database connections, configuration settings, authors, etc. For more information about the package.json format see: package.json

Confirm a User account

All User accounts must be confirmed. When a new User is created, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address associated with that user. In this email there will be an invite code. This code must be sent to the API to confirm the account.

{
  inviteCode: "SecretCode"
}
