descil-mturk

API to connect to the Mturk-service offered by the ETH Decision Science Laboratory (DeSciL)

DeSciL-mturk

API to connect to the Amazon Mechanical Service payment service provided by the ETH Decision Science Laboratory (DeSciL).

The DeSciL Mturk service is still in beta. If you are interested in testing the descil-mturk API, contact the lab manager to receive valid credentials.

Create a file called descil.conf.js containing the following lines:

module.exports.key = "zyx";
module.exports.project = "xyx";
module.exports.uri = "http://xxx.xxx";
module.exports.file = "path/to/codes"; // optional 

You can then import the configuration file:

var dk = require('descil-mturk')('path/to/descil.conf.js');
 
// or 
 
var dk = require('descil-mturk')();
dk.readConfiguration('path/to/descil.conf.js');
dk.checkIn(code, cb);
dk.checkOut(code, cb);
dk.postPayoffs(payoffs, cb);
dk.dryRun(false); // Actually establishes connections with the service. 

Refer to the in-line documentation for more examples.
