By Josh Balfour

npm-version npm-installs dev-deps issues

Description

Unofficial SDK for Microsoft® Cognitive Services written for Node.JS.

Usage of Microsoft® Cognitive Services is bound by their Terms and Conditions.

Getting Started

To get started first sign up and grab your API keys. Then figure out which API you want to use, you can find descriptions here.

To use this SDK in your project, run npm install --save cognitive-services.

Then make a JS file in your project directory and add the following:

const cognitiveServices = require('cognitive-services');

You are now ready to use the APIs, for example:

const parameters = {
    "mode": "proof",
    "mkt": "en-us"
}
 
const body = "Text=Bill+Gatas"
 
const spellCheckClient = new cognitiveServices.bingSpellCheck({
    apiKey: "YOUR-API-KEY",
    endpoint: "YOUR-ENDPOINT"
})
 
spellCheckClient.spellCheck({
    parameters,
    body
}).then(response => {
    console.log(response);
})

If you want to see more examples of use you can see within the test folder.
