node-pnp-js allows you to use pnp-js-core from Node.js environment.
node-pnp-js implements it's own version of NodeFetchClient (shipped with sp-pnp-js) which supports authentication with help of node-sp-auth module.


How to use

Install

npm install node-pnp-js --save

Import fetch client and configure pnp

import * as pnp from 'sp-pnp-js';
import NodeFetchClient from 'node-pnp-js';

pnp.setup({
    sp: {
        fetchClientFactory: () => {
            return new NodeFetchClient(credentials);
        }
    }
});

credentials - the same object (credentialOptions) provided for node-sp-auth module. That means you can use any authentication option from node-sp-auth you want.

Use PnP-JS-Core library in code:

new pnp.Web(siteUrl).get()
    .then(data => {
        console.log(`Your web title: ${data.Title}`);
    })

There are three different approaches you can use in order to provide your SharePoint site url.

1. Use Web or Site constructor (like in a sample above) with siteUrl constructor param:

pnp.setup({
    sp: {
        fetchClientFactory: () => new NodeFetchClient(test.creds)
    }
});

new pnp.Web(siteUrl).get()
    .then(data => {
        console.log(`Your web title: ${data.Title}`);
    })

2. Use baseUrl configuration parameter (coming from sp-pnp-js):

pnp.setup({
    sp: {
        fetchClientFactory: () => new NodeFetchClient(test.creds),
        baseUrl: siteUrl
    }
});

// now you can access your web using chaining syntax 
// (pnp.sp.web will reference the web with url you provided as baseUrl):
pnp.sp.web.get()
    .then(data => {
        console.log(`Your web title: ${data.Title}`);
    })

3. Use siteUrl constructor param for NodeFetchClient:

pnp.setup({
    sp: {
        fetchClientFactory: () => new NodeFetchClient(test.creds)
    }
});

// now you can access your web using chaining syntax 
// (pnp.sp.web will reference the web with url you provided as siteUrl param):
pnp.sp.web.get()
    .then(data => {
        console.log(`Your web title: ${data.Title}`);
    })

Use cases:

  1. Any Node.js project with SharePoint. It can be remote jobs, azure functions, daemons, etc.
  2. Build pipeline extensibility. You can easily enhance your gulp pipeline with custom actions touching SharePoint.
  3. Anything else you can do with Node.js and SharePoint :)

Development:

I recommend using VS Code for development. Repository already contains some settings for VS Code editor.

  1. git clone https://github.com/s-KaiNet/node-pnp-js.git
  2. npm install
  3. npm run build - runs typescript compilation

Integration testing:

  1. Rename file /test/integration/private.config.sample.ts to private.config.ts.
  2. Update information in private.config.ts with appropriate values (urls, credentials).
  3. Run gulp test-int.
