VHX API — Node Demo Site
A Node.js demo site powered by the VHX API. Read more about the VHX API at our Developer Docs.
To take a deeper look at the ins and outs of the demo site, or to use it as a starting point for your own Node VHX powered site see below.
1) Fork the repo
3) Add an
.env file. The demo site uses the following:
PORT=1896 // or any available port VHX_API_KEY=YOUR_API_KEY // get this from the VHX Platforms Dashboard TYPEKIT_ID=YOUR_TYPEKIT_ID // only if you want to use typekit SESSION_SECRET=YOUR_SESSION_SECRET // for express-sessions
If you don't have an account sign up here.
Once you have an account, you can get your API Key here. You'll also need to setup your product, collections, and add any videos via the VHX Dashboard. Any API request
hrefs in the demo site codebase, will need to be replaced with your own resources from your VHX account.
Starting the server
2) Go to: http://localhost:1896 (or whatever port you set)
