Steam Community

Easily access information about yourself and your friends on the Steam community website. Given a 64bit Steam ID, this module retrieves a user's XML from the Steam Community site and returns a parsed JSON object. Awesome!

Includes configurable timeouts and retry, provided by the Re package.

Install

  npm install steam-community

Usage

Get your 64bit steam ID and plug it in. You'll get back an object with all the infos.

var steam = require('steam-community'),
    client = steam();

client.user("12345678901234567", function(err, user){
        console.log(util.inspect(user, false, 4, true));
});

There's also a games function. You use it like this:

var steam = require('steam-community'),
    client = steam();

client.games("12345678901234567", function(err, games){
        console.log(util.inspect(games, false, 4, true));
}); 

Where games is a JSON array of objects that look something like this:

{ 
   "appID": "42910",
   "name": "Magicka",
   "logo": "http://media.steampowered.com/steamcommunity/public/images/apps/42910/8c59c674ef40f59c3bafde8ff0d59b7994c66477.jpg",
   "storeLink": "http://store.steampowered.com/app/42910",
   "hoursOnRecord": "1.1",
   "statsLink": "http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/12345678901234567/stats/Magicka",
   "globalStatsLink": "http://steamcommunity.com/stats/Magicka/achievements/"
} 

Options

The default options look like this:

var options = {
    timeout : 10000,
    retries : 10,
    strategy : {
        "type": steam.STRATEGIES.EXPONENTIAL,
        "initial":800,
        "base":2,
        "max":3200
    }
}

everything except timeout is documented in Re, (and get's passed to it).
