Client for the SendGrid v3 Web API

This client library is used by the other Twilio SendGrid service packages to make requests to the Twilio SendGrid v3 Web API. You can also use it independently to make custom requests to the Twilio SendGrid v3 Web API and other HTTP APIs.

Installation

Prerequisites

  • Node.js version 6, 8 or >=10
  • A Twilio SendGrid account, sign up for free to send up to 40,000 emails for the first 30 days or check out our pricing.

Obtain an API Key

Grab your API Key from the Twilio SendGrid UI.

Setup Environment Variables

Do not hardcode your Twilio SendGrid API Key into your code. Instead, use an environment variable or some other secure means of protecting your Twilio SendGrid API Key. Following is an example of using an environment variable.

Update the development environment with your SENDGRID_API_KEY, for example:

echo "export SENDGRID_API_KEY='YOUR_API_KEY'" > sendgrid.env
echo "sendgrid.env" >> .gitignore
source ./sendgrid.env

Install Package

The following recommended installation requires npm. If you are unfamiliar with npm, see the npm docs. Npm comes installed with Node.js since node version 0.8.x, therefore, you likely already have it.

npm install --save @sendgrid/client

You may also use yarn to install.

yarn add @sendgrid/client

General v3 Web API Usage Example

Please see USAGE.md for all endpoint examples for the Twilio SendGrid v3 Web API.

const client = require('@sendgrid/client');
client.setApiKey(process.env.SENDGRID_API_KEY);
const request = {
  method: 'GET',
  url: '/v3/api_keys'
};
client.request(request)
.then(([response, body]) => {
  console.log(response.statusCode);
  console.log(body);
})

Add a Custom Default Header

client.setDefaultHeader('User-Agent', 'Some user agent string');
// or
client.setDefaultHeader({'User-Agent': 'Some user agent string'});

Change Request Defaults

client.setDefaultRequest('baseUrl', 'https://api.sendgrid.com/');
// or
client.setDefaultRequest({baseUrl: 'https://api.sendgrid.com/'});

Overwrite Promise Implementation

You can overwrite the promise implementation you want the client to use. Defaults to the ES6 Promise:

global.Promise = require('bluebird');

Instantiate Client Instances Manually

const {Client} = require('@sendgrid/client');
const sgClient1 = new Client();
const sgClient2 = new Client();
sgClient1.setApiKey('KEY1');
sgClient2.setApiKey('KEY2');
