Getting started

Installing with NPM

npm install casparcg-connection --save

This installs the full project with sourcecode and dependencies, typescript project files and the compiled .js output with typings.

In your code, include and use the CasparCG object from this library with a code similar to:

const { CasparCG } = require('casparcg-connection')

const connection = new CasparCG()
const { error, request } = connection.play({ channel: 1, layer: 1, clip: 'amb' })
if (error) {
	console.log('Error when sending', error)
} else {
	const response = await request
	console.log(response)
}

Note: as of 6.0.0 the library has had a major rewrite with significant API changes and support for CasparCG 2.0 was dropped.

Build from source

Installing with yarn adds the dev-dependencies needed to compile TypeScript. A set of commands help you managing development and testing:

  • yarn clean Empties the /dist directory.
  • yarn build Runs a single build command without watching for changes.
  • yarn build -w Rebuilds on every change.
  • yarn lint Runs code linting. Pull Requests won't be accepted without lint compliance.
  • yarn test Runs code tests through Jest.

Doing a release

Run yarn changelog to generate the changelog, tags and commit. Push these changes and the newly made tag.
