NodeJS wrapper for DataSift REST API

datasift-rest

Node.js Wrapper for DataSift REST API.

Does not callback with (err, res, data) as is the default in request. Now uses more normal (err, data) parameters.

npm install datasift-rest
var DataSift = require('datasift-rest');

var options = {
  USERNAME: "MY_DATASIFT_USERNAME", // ex: joespizza
  API_KEY: "MY_DATASIFT_PASSWORD" // ex: 75368shgpauihawieyear754873
};

var ds = new DataSift(options);

ds.core.balance(function(err, data) {
  if (err) { throw err; }
  console.log("balance: " + data);
});

var ids = [20731458, 18751623, 363450850];

ds.helpers.generateTwitterFollowHash(ids, function (err, data) {
  if (err) { throw err; }
  console.log(data);
});

More info for each call and additional options is available here: DataSift Rest API Docs

In addition to the core API calls, I've included a few helpers to build CSDLs for common use cases. These should be considered experimental and additions or revisions would be very welcome.
