InformaCast Mobile REST Client

A simple REST client for Node to communicate with the InformaCast Mobile API. This library defines a simple wrapper around the great rest library. Because of this, the format of request params and client configuration params are the same.

Installation

Node

npm install icm-js-client --save

Browser

bower install icm-js-client --save

Usage

Make sure to require the client in your code

Node

var ICMClient = require('icm-nodejs-client');

Browser

<script type="text/javascript" src="vendor/bundle.min.js"></script>

Create an instance of the client

var client = ICMClient({
    token: 'KBXCNEAYXEI6JOUVXDUFMMTXI3PHWUNALIPBDZFLGGFB2AZ5YM5HDYNJFLIVWX6ZT56A='
});

A list of options that can be passed to create the client can be found in the table below:

Name Required Type Default Description
url false String 'https://api.icmobile.singlewire.com' Used if necessary to provide a different API endpoint. Useful for testing.
token true String null The required API token to authorize requests.
clientSetup false Function null Passes the wrapped rest object for additional configuration. Useful for defining additional interceptors

Create

client.users().create({entity: {name: 'John Smith', email: 'john.smith@acme.com'}});
client.notifications().create({entity: {messageTemplateId: 'cc93bfd0-9917-11e4-a401-c22f013130a9', subject: 'FooBar'}});

Read

To read an individual resource:

client.users('fa875180-7fc3-11e4-a09c-7a198bebdf90').show();
client.users('fa875180-7fc3-11e4-a09c-7a198bebdf90').notifications('3bc560d0-974b-11e4-b83f-1ae59cb5b126').show();

To list/paginate/search a resource:

// List with the default page size
client.users().list();

// List with max of 50 per page
client.users().list({params: {limit: 50}});

// Search for users with the name John
client.users().list({params: {q: 'John'}});

// The client library a helper method to make pagination easier
client.paginate(client.users().list(), function(usersPage) {
    // Do something awesome with this page
    return true; // Return true to get the next page (if available), false to stop
}, function(error) {
    // Something went wrong!
});

Update

client.users('de7b51a0-5a1e-11e4-ab31-8a1d033dd637').update({entity: {name: 'John Jacob Smith'}});
client.distributionLists('dada08f0-7fc3-11e4-a09c-7a198bebdf90').update({entity: {name: 'Updated Name'}});

Delete

client.users('de7b51a0-5a1e-11e4-ab31-8a1d033dd637').remove();
client.distributionLists('dada08f0-7fc3-11e4-a09c-7a198bebdf90').remove();

Note

Every request returns a Promise object and can be used as described below. The response format can be found in the Common Response Properties section of the rest docs.

var responsePromise = ...;
responsePromise.then(function(response) {
    // Request was successful, process the data
}, function (error) {
    // Request failed
});

Building
