0.2.0 • Public • Published


A simple Node.js-based command-line client to the Intellinote REST API.


Via npm

intellinote-cli is deployed as an npm module under the name intellinote-cli. Hence you can install a pre-packaged version with the command:

npm install -g intellinote-cli

Omit the -g part to install the module "locally" (in the current working directory).

Once installed, the command intellinote should be available in your node_modules/.bin directory.

For use as a library

You can use intellinote-cli within your Node.js module by adding a line like:

"intellinote-cli": "latest"

to the dependencies or devDependencies part of your package.json file.

From source

The source code and documentation for intellinote-cli is available on GitHub at intellinote/intellinote-cli. You can clone the repository via:

git clone

Once the code is obtain, you can run:

make install bin

to install any dependencies and build the executeable script.

Once installed, the command intellinote should be available in the intellinote-cli/bin directory.



Invoke intellinote with the command line parameter --help for a quick usage summary:

$ ./bin/intellinote --help
USE: intellinote login|logout|(GET|POST|PUT|PATCH|DELETE|HEAD <URL> [<BODY>])

"Raw" API calls

intellinote-cli provides a simple way to invoke Intellinote's REST API using the following form:

intellinote <HTTP-VERB> <PATH> [<BODY>]

For example, the following command invokes the REST method /v2.0/ping (which returns a timestamp):

$ ./bin/intellinote GET /v2.0/ping"


Before you can use intellinote-cli you must authenticate to Intellinote using the login command.

intellinote-cli ask you for your username and password and then use the OAuth2 protocol to exchange those credentials for an "access token"

$ ./bin/intellinote login
Password? ********

intellinote-cli does NOT store your username and password. It does however store the access token value in a file located at $HOME/.intellinote. In a limited sense, that access token can be used much like a password. You should keep that file secure.


Invoking intellinote logout will remove all log-in information from the configuration file at $HOME/.intellinote. You will need to log in again to access your Intellinote data.

How to contribute

Your contributions, bug reports and pull-requests are greatly appreciated.

We're happy to accept any help you can offer, but the following guidelines can help streamline the process for everyone.

  • You can report any bugs at

    • We'll be able to address the issue more easily if you can provide an demonstration of the problem you are encountering. The best format for this demonstration is a failing unit test (like those found in ./test/), but your report is welcome with or without that.
  • Our preferred channel for contributions or changes to the source code and documentation is as a Git "patch" or "pull-request".

    • If you've never submitted a pull-request, here's one way to go about it:

      1. Fork or clone the repository.
      2. Create a local branch to contain your changes (git checkout -b my-new-branch).
      3. Make your changes and commit them to your local repository.
      4. Create a pull request as described here.
    • If you'd rather use a private (or just non-GitHub) repository, you might find these generic instructions on creating a "patch" with Git helpful.

  • If you are making changes to the code please ensure that the unit test suite still passes.

  • If you are making changes to the code to address a bug or introduce new features, we'd greatly appreciate it if you can provide one or more unit tests that demonstrate the bug or exercise the new feature.

Please Note: We'd rather have a contribution that doesn't follow these guidelines than no contribution at all. If you are confused or put-off by any of the above, your contribution is still welcome. Feel free to contribute or comment in whatever channel works for you.
