    Node.js client to get unthrottled access to Amazon Product Advertising API

    alt text

    Node.js client for Amazon Product Advertising API. If you are frequently running into the RequestThrottled error You are submitting requests too quickly. Please retry your requests at a slower rate, this gives you unthrottled access to Amazon product data using a shared cache.

    This is meant to be a drop-in replacement for amazon-product-api Node.js client. If you are already using it, replace require('amazon-product-api') with require('amazon-unthrottled-api') and you should be good to go.

    NPM

    Installation

    npm install amazon-unthrottled-api
