    Build Status

    Installation

    npm install gapitoken
    

    Usage

    var GAPI = require('gapitoken');
    
    var gapi = new GAPI({
        iss: 'service account email address from Google API console',
        scope: 'space delimited list of requested scopes',
        keyFile: 'path to private_key.pem'
    }, function(err) {
       if (err) { return console.log(err); }
    
       gapi.getToken(function(err, token) {
           if (err) { return console.log(err); }
           console.log(token);
       });     
    });
    

    Another option is to pass the private key as a string

    var key = "-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----\n\
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\n\
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\n\
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\n\
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\n\
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\n\
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\n\
    -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----";
    
    var gapi = new GAPI({
        iss: 'service account email address from Google API console',
        scope: 'space delimited list of requested scopes',
        key: key
    }, function() {
       gapi.getToken(function(err, token) {
           if (err) { return console.log(err); }
           console.log(token);
       });     
    });
    

    Creating a Private key file

    1. Login to Google API Console, and under "API Access" create a "service account" for your project.

    2. Download the .p12 private key file

    3. Convert the .p12 file to .pem: openssl pkcs12 -in key.p12 -out key.pem -nocerts

    NOTE: You must set a passphrase for the .pem file

    1. Remove the passphrase from the .pem file: openssl rsa -in key.pem -out key.pem

    Install
