    Discontinued

    I worked on this project in my spare time, but unfortunately I no longer work with mikrotik devices and don't have the free time anymore, so consider it as discontinued. Feel free to fork this project and create your own spin.

    Description

    This is a Mikrotik Routerboard API written in Typescript for nodejs, can be either used with plain javascript or imported on typescript projects.

    This library will handle the API in a more lowerlevel way, for a simpler to use interface I recommend my routeros-client for a more "object-oriented" API, which wraps this API. It has a very rich documentation, so please check it out.

    Features

    • Connection and reconnection without destroying the object.
    • Change host, username and other parameters of the object without recreating it.
    • Based on promises.
    • You can choose to keep the connection alive if it gets idle.
    • Every command is async, but can be synced using the promises features.
    • Can pause, resume and stop streams (like what you get from /tool/torch).
    • Support languages with accents, keeping it consistent throughout winbox and api.

    Installing

    npm install node-routeros --save

    Examples

    You can import in TypeScript using:

    import { RouterOSAPI } from 'node-routeros';

    Adding an IP address to ether2, printing it, then removing it synchronously:

    const RosApi = require('node-routeros').RouterOSAPI;
    
    const conn = new RosApi({
        host: '192.168.88.1',
        user: 'admin',
        password: '',
    });
    
    conn.connect()
        .then(() => {
            // Connection successful
    
            // Let's add an IP address to ether2
            conn.write('/ip/address/add', [
                '=interface=ether2',
                '=address=192.168.90.1',
            ])
                .then((data) => {
                    console.log('192.168.90.1 added to ether2!', data);
    
                    // Added the ip address, let's print it
                    return conn.write('/ip/address/print', ['?.id=' + data[0].ret]);
                })
                .then((data) => {
                    console.log('Printing address info: ', data);
    
                    // We got the address added, let's clean it up
                    return conn.write('/ip/address/remove', [
                        '=.id=' + data[0]['.id'],
                    ]);
                })
                .then((data) => {
                    console.log('192.168.90.1 as removed from ether2!', data);
    
                    // The address was removed! We are done, let's close the connection
                    conn.close();
                })
                .catch((err) => {
                    // Oops, got an error
                    console.log(err);
                });
        })
        .catch((err) => {
            // Got an error while trying to connect
            console.log(err);
        });

    Listening data from /ip/torch and using pause/resume/stop feature:

    const RosApi = require("node-routeros").RouterOSAPI;
    
    const conn = new RosApi({
        host: "192.168.88.1",
        user: "admin"
        password: ""
    });
    
    conn.connect().then(() => {
        // Counter to trigger pause/resume/stop
        let i = 0;
    
        // The stream function returns a Stream object which can be used to pause/resume/stop the stream
        const addressStream = conn.stream(['/tool/torch', '=interface=ether1'], (error, packet) => {
            // If there is any error, the stream stops immediately
            if (!error) {
                console.log(packet);
    
                // Increment the counter
                i++;
    
                // if the counter hits 30, we stop the stream
                if (i === 30) {
    
                    // Stopping the stream will return a promise
                    addressStream.stop().then(() => {
                        console.log('should stop');
                        // Once stopped, you can't start it again
                        conn.close();
                    }).catch((err) => {
                        console.log(err);
                    });
    
                } else if (i % 5 === 0) {
    
                    // If the counter is multiple of 5, we will pause it
                    addressStream.pause().then(() => {
                        console.log('should be paused');
    
                        // And after it is paused, we resume after 3 seconds
                        setTimeout(() => {
                            addressStream.resume().then(() => {
                                console.log('should resume');
                            }).catch((err) => {
                                console.log(err);
                            });
                        }, 3000);
    
                    }).catch((err) => {
                        console.log(err);
                    });
    
                }
    
            }else{
                console.log(error);
            }
        });
    
    }).catch((err) => {
        // Got an error while trying to connect
        console.log(err);
    });

    Note that, if are cloning this repo, you must be familiar with Typescript so you can make your changes.

    Testing

    In order to run the tests, I used RouterOS CHR on a virtual machine with 4 interfaces, where the first interface is a bridge of my network card:

    VirtualBox RouterOS CHR Conf

    TODO

    • Write more tests
