Callback

Callback from all API calls returns 2 parameters - error and a json object.

An example callback function :

function consolelog (err,messageResponse) {
       if (err) {
            console.log(err);
       } else {
            console.dir(messageResponse);
       }
}

Refer here http://nexmo.com/documentation/ to get the schema for the returned message response object.

Testing

There is a basic test suite which will test the functionality. It uses environment variables for settings for the tests. The environment variables are:

  • KEY = The API key provided by Nexmo for your account
  • SECRET = The secret provided by NExmo for your account
  • FROM_NUMBER = The phone number to send messages and make calls from.
  • TO_NUMBER = The phone number to send messages and make calls to.
  • MAX_DIGITS = The maximum number of digits for the pin code.
  • ANSWER_URL = The URL which has the VoiceXML file to control the call functionality
  • PIN_CODE = The digits you must enter to confirm the message

You run the test suite using:

KEY=<your key> SECRET=<your secret> FROM_NUMBER=<from number> TO_NUMBER=<to number> MAX_DIGITS=<max digits> ANSWER_URL=<your answer url> PIN_CODE=<your pin code> node test/nexmo_test.js

Please remember to substitute the values!

For testing purposes you can also use setHost function to make the library send requests to another place like localhost instead of real Nexmo. Feel free to catch and process those requests the way you need. A usage example:

nexmo.setHost('localhost');

Note that default port is 443 and easynexmo does https calls in such a case. You can use setPort function to make it proper for your testing environment. When port is not 443 it will make requests via http protocol. Have a look at an example:

nexmo.setPort('8080');
