API wrapper for RequestBin (http://requestb.in)
API wrapper for RequestBin
With NPM for the latest stable release:
npm install requestbin
Or from Github for the most recent code, but may be unstable:
git clone https://github.com/fvdm/nodejs-requestbin npm install ./nodejs-requestbin
This module has only four methods and each of them requires a callback function as last parameter to receive the results. The API response is JSON parsed to an object or array.
var requestbin = require'requestbin'requestbincreate callbackFunction
The callback receives only one parameter
err in case of an error. This will be an
instanceof Error with stack trace and sometimes more properties to describe the error.
When everything seems fine the
err param is
null and a second param
data contains the result.
if !errconsole.log dataelseconsole.log err // message + info properties, ie. detailsconsole.log errstack // what caused it
Error: disconnected : connection closed too early Error: request failed : request can't be made Error: invalid response : API did not return JSON Error: HTTP error : a HTTP error like 404

The output is much like the previous example, but it's an object instead of array.
