Benbria DashingClient

Sends stats to Dashing.

DashingClient sends stats to Dashing, the exceptionally handsome dashboard framework.

In much the same way that you can send data from the command line using curl:

curl -d '{ "auth_token": "YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN", "text": "Hey, Look what I can do!" }'\
\http://localhost:3030/widgets/welcome

You can send data using DashingClient from your node.js program:

DashingClient = require('dashing-client');

dashing = new DashingClient("http://localhost:3030", "YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN");
dashing.send("welcome", {text: "Hey, look what I can do!"}, function(err, resp, body) {
    // Do callback stuff
});

Note that you can also pass authentication credentials for basic_auth:

DashingClient = require('dashing-client');

dashing = new DashingClient("http://localhost:3030", "YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN",
  {auth: {user: "user", pass: "secret"}});

Install with:

npm install dashing-client

Or, add to your package.json

"dependencies": {
  "dashing-client": ">=0.0.1"
}
