asterisk-manager

A node.js module for interacting with the Asterisk Manager API.

Asterisk Manager API

For a project of mine I needed a low level interface to the Asterisk Manager API. I looked around and found https://github.com/mscdex/node-asterisk . While it was a good starting point, it had too many abstractions for my taste. Which is why I based my version on it an then radically refactored it. In the end there now is very little in common with it.

So this is basically a different piece of work, but since there is a shared DNA and I got a good start by depending on Brian's work, I feel like giving credit is appropriate.

$ npm install asterisk-manager
/**
 * port:  port server
 * host: host server
 * username: username for authentication
 * password: username's password for authentication
 * events: this parameter determines whether events are emited.
 **/
var ami = new require('asterisk-manager')('port','host','username','password', true); 
 
// In case of any connectiviy problems we got you coverd. 
ami.keepConnected();
 
// Listen for any/all AMI events. 
ami.on('managerevent', function(evt) {});
 
// Listen for specific AMI events. A list of event names can be found at 
// https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/Asterisk+11+AMI+Events 
ami.on('hangup', function(evt) {});
ami.on('confbridgejoin', function(evt) {});
 
// Listen for Action responses. 
ami.on('response', function(evt) {});
 
// Perform an AMI Action. A list of actions can be found at 
// https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/Asterisk+11+AMI+Actions 
ami.action({
  'action':'originate',
  'channel':'SIP/myphone',
  'context':'default',
  'exten':1234,
  'priority':1,
  'variable':{
    'name1':'value1',
    'name2':'value2'
  }
}, function(errres) {});
