node.js module for little printer publications

branch: master
README.md

node-littleprinter

Build Status

Introduction

node-little printer is a node.js module that makes it simple to create a node.js server that can serve up content for Little Printers. It simplifies publising content for Little Printer, handling all of the API routing and etag generation so that you can concentrate on the actual content.

What are Little Printers?

Little Printer lives in your home, bringing you news, puzzles and gossip from friends. Use your smartphone to set up subscriptions and Little Printer will gather them together to create a timely, beautiful miniature newspaper.

Take a look at the BERG documentation for more info.

Installation and Usage

Super Simple Example

var express = require('express'),
      littleprinter = require('littleprinter');

var app = express();

// in this example I am using ejs, feel free to use a different view engine if you wish
app.set('view engine', 'ejs');

var handler = { };

handler.meta = {
  "owner_email":"a@a.com",
  "publication_api_version":"1.0",
  "name": "Hello, World!",
  "description": "Example publication for Little Printer",
  "delivered_on":"every day",
  "external_configuration": false,
  "send_timezone_info": true,
  "send_delivery_count": true
};

littleprinter.setup(app, handler);
console.log('Server started on: http://localhost:3000');
app.listen(3000);

There is also a more structured example project that you can fork and play with.

I have also written a post about hosting a Little Printer server on Heroku if it's useful.
