Access the DNSimple API
This is an unofficial DNSimple API module for node.js. You need a DNSimple account to use this.
npm install dnsimple
npm install fvdm/nodejs-dnsimple#develop
See Configuration below for details.
var dnsimple = 'dnsimple' email: 'email@example.com' token: 'abc123' ;// Add a domain namevar input =domain: name: 'example.tld';dnsimple 'POST' '/domains' inputif errreturn console.log err ;console.log datadomainname +' created with ID '+ datadomainid ;;
More examples: https://github.com/fvdm/nodejs-dnsimple/wiki
This module supports multiple authentication methods. None of them is totally secure, but some are easier to reset.
Most secure, easy to reset at dnsimple.com/account.
require'dnsimple' email: 'firstname.lastname@example.org' token: '12345abcde'
require'dnsimple' email: 'email@example.com' password: 'secret'
Access to only one domain name, easy to reset.
require'dnsimple' domainToken: 'abc123'
When you have set up two-factor authentication for your account the module returns
twoFactorOTP missing when you did not provide your one-time password.
First your need to tell the API once your one-time code from Authy or SMS, by
defining it during setup along with your
password and calling a random
method. Then the API returns a token which you can use instead of your email and password.
// Set the OTP code on loadvar dnsimple = require'dnsimple'email: 'firstname.lastname@example.org'password: 'my-secret'twoFactorOTP: '0123456';// Now call a random method to trade the OTP for a longterm tokendnsimple 'GET' '/subscription'if err return console.logerrconsole.log 'Two-factor token: '+ metatwoFactorToken ;;// From now on only use this token - no email/passwordvar dnsimple = require'dnsimple'twoFactorToken: '22596363b3de40b06f981fb85d82312e';
When loading the module into your code you need to provide an Object for authentication as described above. This object can have a few more settings.
|Account email address|
|token||Account access token|
|domainToken||Domain specific API access token|
|twoFactorOTP||One-time code, i.e. Authy|
|twoFactorToken||Login token, from |
|timeout||End API call after this amount of ms||30000|
To use the sandbox environment
The module is only one method which takes care of all the error handling and basic post-processing.
See the API documentation for details on each method.
|method||string||yes||GET, POST, PUT, DELETE|
|callback||function||yes||Function to receive response|
The last argument
callback receives three arguments:
When an error occurs
erris an instance of
errcan have additional properties.
When everything is good
errwill be null and
datawill be the parsed result.
- DELETE result
datais true on success, false otherwise.
- DELETE result
metaparameter is always available and contains extra information from the API, such as statusCode, request_id, runtime and twoFactorToken.
err.message can be any of these:
|credentials missing||No authentication details set|
|connection dropped||Connection was closed too early|
|not json||Invalid API response, see |
|API error||The API returned an error, see |
|request timeout||The request took too long|
|request failed||The request cannot be made, see |
