Open eXchange Rates

A Node.js client for the Open Exchange Rates API.
Our client is designed to return Promises and provide a flexible caching capability.

Install

npm install --save oxr

Usage

Use the factory to create any number of client instances using your API keys

var oxr = require('oxr')
var service = oxr.factory({
  appId: process.env.OXR_APP_ID || '<YOUR_APP_ID>'
})
 
service.latest().then(function(result){
  var rates = result.rates
  console.log(rates)
})
 

Service API

latest(query, options)

@params query (optional) - A map of query string parameters to pass to the http call.
@params options (optional)- An object to merge with the http options sent to the remote API.
@returns - A promise with the latest rates from openexchangerates.org if resolved, reject with an Instance if the remote API returns an error response or with a standard Error otherwise.

historical(date, query, options)

@params date - Date object or a String which would result in a valid Date object if called with the Date constructor.
@params query (optional) - A map of query string parameters to pass to the http call.
@params options (optional) - An object to merge with the http options sent to the remote API.
@returns - A promise with the rates at the requested date from openexchangerates.org if resolved, reject with an Instance if the remote API returns an error response or with a standard Error otherwise.

currencies(query, options)

@params query (optional) - A map of query string parameters to pass to the http call.
@params options (optional) - An object to merge with the http options sent to the remote API.
@returns - A promise with the list of currency codes from openexchangerates.org if resolved, reject with an Instance if the remote API returns an error response or with a standard Error otherwise.

Cache Decorator

You can also decorate the service methods with a cache.

@params method (optional) - the method to decorate.
Defaults to latest

@params store

  • @params store.get(...methodArgs) - called before a request is sent to the remote API, use this getter to retrieve a value from the cache. can resolve a promise.
  • @params store.put(value, ...methodArgs) - called after the request completed, use this setter to store the value in cache. can resolve a promise.

@params tll (optional) - If the timestamp of the cached rates plus its time to live (ttl) in ms is higher than the current timestamp, the service will call the remote API, otherwise, it will take the value from the cache.
Defaults to 24 hours for latest and to Infinity for currencies and historical

If an error returned from the remote API, the service will fall back to the cached value if any, even if the cache has expired.

@returns - decorated service

var oxr = require('oxr')
var service = oxr.factory({
 appId: process.env.OXR_APP_ID || '<YOUR_APP_ID>'
})
 
service = oxr.cache({
 method: 'latest',
 ttl: 7 * 24 * 1000 * 3600,
 store: {
   get: function () {
     return Promise.resolve(this.value)
   },
   put: function (value) {
     this.value = value
     return Promise.resolve(this.value)
   }
 }
}, service)

You can decorate the service more than once, with different cache strategy for each method

service = oxr.cache({
  method: 'historical',
  store: {
    cache: {},
    get: function (date) {
      return this.cache[date];
    },
    put: function (value, date) {
      this.cache[date] = value;
    }
  }
}, service)
 
 
// note how the arguments that you pass to the decorated method
// are also passed to `get` and `put`
service.historical('2017-11-16')
  .then((value) => { ... })

Error Handling

If the remote service returns an error, Promises are rejected with an instance of OxrError.

var oxr = require('oxr')
var service = oxr.factory({
  appId: '<WRONG_APP_ID>'
})
 
service.latest().catch(function (error) {
  assert(error instanceof oxr.OxrError)
  assert.equal(error.status, 401)
  assert.equal(error.message, 'invalid_app_id')
  assert.equal(error.description, 'Invalid App ID provided - please sign up at https://openexchangerates.org/signup, or contact support@openexchangerates.org. Thanks!')
})
