Create a request sandbox. There is also a deprecated interface dav.createSandbox(). Add requests to the sandbox like so:

var sandbox = new dav.Sandbox();
// sandbox instanceof Sandbox 
dav.createAccount({
  username: 'Yoshi',
  password: 'babybowsersoscaryomg',
  server: 'https://caldav.yoshisstory.com',
  sandbox: sandbox  // <- Insert sandbox here! 
})
.then(function(calendars) {
  // etc, etc. 
});

And abort sandboxed requests as a group with sandbox.abort().

Create a new dav.transport.Basic object. This sends dav requests using http basic authentication.

@param {dav.Credentials} credentials user authorization.
@param {dav.Request} request object with request info.
@return {Promise} a promise that will be resolved with an xhr request after its readyState is 4 or the result of applying an optional request `transformResponse` function to the xhr object after its readyState is 4.
 
Options:
 
  (dav.Sandbox) sandbox - optional request sandbox.

Create a new dav.transport.OAuth2 object. This sends dav requests authorized via rfc 6749 oauth2.

@param {dav.Credentials} credentials user authorization.
@param {dav.Request} request object with request info.
@return {Promise} a promise that will be resolved with an xhr request after its readyState is 4 or the result of applying an optional request `transformResponse` function to the xhr object after its readyState is 4.
 
Options:

Options:
 
  (String) data - put request body.
  (String) method - http method.
  (String) etag - cached calendar object etag.
Options:
 
  (String) depth - optional value for Depth header.

  (Array.<Object>) props - list of props to request.
  (String) timezone - VTIMEZONE calendar object.
Options:
 
  (String) depth - optional value for Depth header.
  (Array.<Object>) props - list of props to request.
Options:
 
  (String) depth - option value for Depth header.
  (Array.<Object>) props - list of props to request.
  (Number) syncLevel - indicates scope of the sync report request.
  (String) syncToken - synchronization token provided by the server.

Create a new dav.Client object. The client interface allows consumers to set their credentials and transport once and then make authorized requests without passing them to each request. Each of the other, public API methods should be available on dav.Client objects.

@param {dav.Transport} xhr - request sender.
 
Options:
 
  (String) baseUrl - root url to resolve relative request urls with.

Send a request using this client's transport (and perhaps baseUrl).

@param {dav.request.Request} req - dav request.
@return {Promise} a promise that will be resolved with an xhr request after its readyState is 4 or the result of applying an optional request `transformResponse` function to the xhr object after its readyState is 4.
 
Options:
 
  (dav.Sandbox) sandbox - optional request sandbox.
  (String) url - relative url for request.

Object that holds various xml namespace constants.

var dav = require('dav');
 
var xhr = new dav.transport.Basic(
  new dav.Credentials({
    username: 'xxx',
    password: 'xxx'
  })
);
 
dav.createAccount({ server: 'http://dav.example.com', xhr: xhr })
.then(function(account) {
  // account instanceof dav.Account 
  account.calendars.forEach(function(calendar) {
    console.log('Found calendar named ' + calendar.displayName);
    // etc. 
  });
});
 
// Or, using the dav.Client interface: 
 
var client = new dav.Client(xhr);
// No transport arg 
client.createAccount({
  server: 'http://dav.example.com',
  accountType: 'carddav'
})
.then(function(account) {
  account.addressBooks.forEach(function(addressBook) {
    console.log('Found address book name ' + addressBook.displayName);
    // etc. 
  });
});

Caution: The lower-level request api is undergoing some major reworking with frequent changes which will break consumers upgrading from earlier versions. If you're looking for a stable api and can live with the higher-level CalDAV and/or CardDAV abstractions, I strongly recommend those since that api is largely stable.

var dav = require('dav');
 
var client = new dav.Client(
  new dav.transport.Basic(
    new dav.Credentials({
      username: 'xxx',
      password: 'xxx'
    })
  ),
  {
    baseUrl: 'https://mail.mozilla.com'
  }
);
 
var req = dav.request.basic({
  method: 'PUT',
  data: 'BEGIN:VCALENDAR\nEND:VCALENDAR',
  etag: '12345'
});
 
// req instanceof dav.Request
 
client.send(req, '/calendars/123.ics')
.then(function(response) {
  // response instanceof XMLHttpRequest
});

Or perhaps without the client:

var dav = require('dav');
 
var xhr = new dav.transport.Basic(
  new dav.Credentials({
    username: 'xxx',
    password: 'xxx'
  })
);
 
// xhr instanceof dav.Transport
 
var req = dav.request.basic({
  method: 'PUT',
  data: 'BEGIN:VCALENDAR\nEND:VCALENDAR',
  etag: '12345'
});
 
// req instanceof dav.Request
 
xhr.send(req, 'https://mail.mozilla.com/calendars/123.ics')
.then(function(response) {
  // response instanceof XMLHttpRequest
});
