rolodex

Instalation

I always recomend you bundle your dependencies with your application. To do this, create a package.json file in the root of your project with the minimum information...

{
  "name": "yourapplication",
  "version": "0.1.0",
  "dependencies": {
    "rolodex": "0.5.8"
  }
}

Then run the following command using npm...

npm install

OR, if you just want to start playing with the library run...

npm install rolodex

Docs

To create a rolodex object that gives us user management functions we must first pass in a redis client for it to use. require the library redis and then pass it as an argument to the rolodex lib.

var redis   = require("redis")
var client  = redis.createClient()
var rolodex = require("rolodex")(client)

Now we have rolodex.account object that gives us account management functions.

Errors

Anytime errors are accepted as the first argument of the callback it will return null if the request was successful and if there are validation errors it will look like the following...

{
  messages: [
    "Password is required",
    "Username must be unique"
  ],
  details: {
    "password": "is required",
    "username": "must be unique"
  }
}

Account

Account Object looks like the following...

{ 
  id: 'ojzg-su2w-kqsn',
  uuid: 'b902b494-3392-4499-958b-2698b8ae411e',
  email: 'brock@sintaxi.com',
  login_at: '2011-10-23T05:18:31.229Z',
  login_count: 84,
  updated_at: '2011-09-23T02:17:26.229Z',
  created_at: '2011-09-23T02:17:26.228Z'
}

account.create(props, callback)

rolodex.account.create(
  {
    "email": "brock@sintaxi.com",
    "password": "something"
  },
  function(errors, account){
    console.log(account)
  }
)

account.update(id, props, callback)

rolodex.account.update("ojzg-su2w-kqsn", { "email": "fred@sintaxi" },
  function(errors, account){
    console.log(account)
  }
)

account.authenticate(username, password, callback)

rolodex.account.authenticate({ email: "brock@sintaxi" }, "something",
  function(errors, account){
    console.log(account)
  }
)
