Guardian Content API for NodeJS =============================== Setup ----- This example uses NodeJS and a number of dependencies to demonstrate a simple example of retrieving content from the Guardian Content API and present that in a web page. Dependencies are managed by [ndistro](https://github.com/visionmedia/ndistro) so should be easy to get started. Install ndistro as per instructions on that site and then run 'ndistro' on the command line. This will set up the following dependencies: - connect, a HTTP middleware library - expressjs, a lightweight web framework - ejs, a rendering engine for HTML - node-properties, a small library to externalise configuration Once ndisto has run the following directories will have been created: bin, lib and modules. NodeJS is now setup locally and relative to the directory you are currently in. Running ------- To run the web app, run the following command ./bin/node index.js If you have not changed any defaults, the web app will load on port 3000. Usage ----- You will be required to enter a name for your query and the URI for the query. You can get the query URI by going to the [Content API Explorer](http://explorer.content.guardianapis.com). Sign up for an account (without one, you can't get HTML from the API required for this app) and use the 'content' tab to build your query. Notes ----- There is no persistence in this application, so when you start the app no queries will have been remembered.
