Node.js client for Box Content API
Node.js client for the Box.com Content API.
The SDK aims to abstract away the intricacies of authentication, refreshing tokens, etc. as far as possible. Hence, you will not find explicit methods to perform low-level operations.
All legitimate public methods map to the high level functionality described in the Content API docs.
Install the module with:
npm install box-sdk
var box_sdk = ;var logLevel = 'debug'; //default log level on construction is info//Default host: localhostvar box = box_sdk;var connection = box;//Navigate user to the auth URLconsole;connection;
Note: There is a complete express example in this gist.
var express =passport =BoxStrategy = Strategybox_sdk = ;...var box = box_sdk;...passport;...var app = ;...app;app;app;
var connection = box;//Navigate user to the auth URLconsole;connection
Before running your tests locally, copy
test/env.json and fill in correct values for the environment variables to be imported during testing.
phantomjs executables must be available in the enviroment path. Usually it is enough to run:
$ (sudo) npm install -g phantomjs$ (sudo) npm install -g casperjs
Run all tests with:
$ grunt mochaTest
The files under
test/integration are completely self-contained, and hence can be run independently. For example:
$ grunt mochaTest --target=./test/integration/api/content/folders-test.js
API documentation is generated by running:
$ grunt jsdoc
The generated documentation is available in the
dist/docs folder. An up-to-date online version is hosted at http://adityamukho.github.io/node-box-sdk/ .
Complete tutorials will soon be added to the documentation. In the meantime, have a look at the included test cases to get an idea of how the SDK is used.
In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
