A serverside javascript wrapper round the 7digital API with the ability to return XML or JSON responses.


The easiest way to use this wrapper is to install it via npm

npm install 7digital-api

or globally

sudo npm install -g 7digital-api 

If you have a clean checkout of the code, you must update the git submodules before installing:

git submodule update --init --recursive

Then you can install via npm as usual (for npm >=1.0)

npm install  ../path/to/checkout


See the examples folder for examples of how to use this. If you have included 7digital-api in your dependencies in the package.json file, you can use the like so:

var api = require('7digital-api'),
    artists = new api.Artists();

artists.getReleases({ artistid: 1 }, function(err, data) {

If you need to supply your own config or want XML, you do so like this:

var api, artists;

api = require('7digital-api').configure({
    format: 'XML',
    oauthkey: 'MY_KEY_HERE',
    oauthsecret: 'MY_SECRET_HERE',

artists = new api.Artists();

artists.getReleases({ artistid: 1 }, function(err, data) {

See []( for full details of the API
endpoints and the parameters they accept.


The 7digital wrapper currently only supports the portions of the API which do not require OAUTH authentication. I.E. The catalogue API
