Fuel REST Client (for Node.js) Build Status

This repo used to be located at https://github.com/exacttarget/Fuel-Node-REST

This library allows users access to the Salesforce Marketing Cloud (formerly ExactTarget) REST API at a low level.

npm install fuel-rest --save

yarn add fuel-rest

Initialization

new FuelRest(options) - Initialization

  • options.auth
  • options.origin or options.restEndpoint
  • options.headers
    • Required: no
    • Type: Object
    • set headers that apply to all REST requests (not auth requests)

API

  • apiRequest(options, callback)
    • options - see request modules options
    • options.auth - will be passed into getAccessToken inside Fuel Auth
    • options.uri - can either be a full url or a path that is appended to options.origin used at initialization (url.resolve)
    • options.retry - boolean value representing whether or not to retry request (and request new token) on 401 invalid token response. default: false
    • callback - executed after task is completed.
      • if no callback is passed, you'll need to use the promise interface
  • get | post | put | patch | delete(options, callback)
    • options - see apiRequest options
    • options.retry - see above for description. default: true
    • callback - see apiRequest options
    • Request method will be overwritten by these methods. It will be set to same value as the name of the method used

Setting up the client

const FuelRest = require('fuel-rest');
const options = {
    auth: {
        // options you want passed when Fuel Auth is initialized
        clientId: 'clientId',
        clientSecret: 'clientSecret'
    },
    origin: 'https://alternate.rest.endpoint.com' // default --> https://www.exacttargetapis.com
};
 
const RestClient = new FuelRest(options);

Examples

const options = {
    uri: '/platform/v1/endpoints',
    headers: {}
    // other request options
};
 
// CANNOT USE BOTH CALLBACKS AND PROMISES TOGETHER
RestClient.get(options, (err, response) => {
    if (err) {
        // error here
        console.log(err);
    }
 
    // will be delivered with 200, 400, 401, 500, etc status codes
    // response.body === payload from response
    // response.res === full response from request client
    console.log(response);
});
 
// or with promises
RestClient.get(options)
    .then(response => {
        // will be delivered with 200, 400, 401, 500, etc status codes
        // response.body === payload from response
        // response.res === full response from request client
        console.log(response);
    })
    .catch(err => console.log(err));
