Namara

npm version

The unofficial node.js client for the Namara Open Data service. namara.io

Installation

npm install namara

Usage

Instantiation

You need a valid API key in order to access Namara (you can find it in your My Account details on namara.io).

var Namara = require('namara');
 
var namara = new Namara('{YOUR_API_KEY}');

You can also optionally enable debug mode by passing a second argument:

var namara = new Namara('{YOUR_API_KEY}', true);

Getting Data

To make a basic request to the Namara API you can call get on your instantiated object and pass it the ID of the dataset you want and the ID of the version of the data set:

namara.get('18b854e3-66bd-4a00-afba-8eabfc54f524', 'en-2')
.then(function (data) {
  console.log(data);
})
.error(function (e) {
  // Depending on how Namara feels you may need e.message 
  // or e.error for a readable message. 
  console.log('Stop Breaking Shit, idiot: ' + e.error);
});

(All get requests return promises by default.)

Without a third options argument passed, this will return data with the Namara default offset (0) and limit (10) applied. To specify options, you can pass an options argument:

var options = {
  offset: 0,
  limit: 150
};
 
namara.get('18b854e3-66bd-4a00-afba-8eabfc54f524', 'en-2', options)
.then(function (data) {
  console.log(data);
})
.error(function (e) {
  console.log('Stop Breaking Shit, idiot: ' + e.error);
});

If you'd like to use a callback instead, the following is supported:

namara.get('18b854e3-66bd-4a00-afba-8eabfc54f524', 'en-2', options, function (err, data) {
  if(err) console.log(err);
  ...
});

You can also pass the callback as the third argument:

namara.get('18b854e3-66bd-4a00-afba-8eabfc54f524', 'en-2', function (err, data) {
  if(err) console.log(err);
  ...
});

Options

All Namara data options are supported.

Basic options

var options = {
  select: 'p0,p1',
  where: 'p0 = 100 AND nearby(p3, 43.25, -123.1, 10km)',
  offset: 0,
  limit: 10,
}

Aggregation options Only one aggregation option can be specified in a request, in the case of this example, all options are illustrated, but passing more than one in the options object will throw an error.

var options = {
  offset: 0,
  limit: 10,
  aggregation: {
    sum: 'p0',
    avg: 'p0',
    min: 'p0',
    max: 'p0',
    count: '*',
    geocluster: 'p3, 10',
    geobounds: 'p3'
  }
}
