Tinder Pro

A wrapper for the Tinder API

Installation

via npm

npm install tinder_pro

via git

git clone https://github.com/tranhungt/tinder_pro.git

Getting the Facebook OAUTH Tokens

In order to use the API, you will need the facebook oauth token. To get the facebook oauth token, it's best to use a proxy service such as Charles Proxy. You can set up Charles Proxy by following a simple walkthrough here:

http://hungtran.co/discovering-tinders-private-api/

After setting up the proxy, initiate the tinder app on your phone, and you will see the http request to https://api.gotinder.com/auth. Check the request json body, and you will see something like

{
  "facebook_token": "CAAGm0PX4ZCps............",

  "facebook_id": "761..."
}

Usage

###Authenticating With the facebook auth token, you can plug it into the app's auth.

var FACEBOOK_ID = "761..."

var FACEBOOK_TOKEN = "BAAGm0PX4ZCps............"

var TinderPro = require('tinder_pro')
var tinder = new TinderPro()

tinder.sign_in(FACEBOOK_ID, FACEBOOK_TOKEN, function(err, res, body){})

Every function is an asynchronous request to Tinder's API, therefore takes a callback with the params callback(err, res, body) that reflects the API's response.

###Interacting with Users

.get_nearby_users(callback)
```

Returns an array of json user objects.

```
.like(user_id, callback)
```

Likes a user, equivalent of swiping right.


```
.dislike(user_id, callback)
```

Passes on the user.

```
.send_message(user_id, message, callback)
```

Sends a message to the user. You can only do this to users whom you've been matched with.
Generally used after you call `.like` and the response body.match is true.

```
.fetch_updates(callback)
```
Gets updates from your last visit, ie. messages, likes, blocks.


###Updating preferences
```
.update_search_distance(distance, callback)
```

Takes an integer distance in miles and updates your search distance preference.

```
.update_location(latitude, longitude, callback)
```

Updates your current position. Latitude and longitude are float precision.
