requestbin

RequestBin API methods for Node.js

var requestbin = require ('requestbin');
 
requestbin.create (false, function (errdata) {
  if (err) { return console.log (err); }
 
  console.log ('Send requests to: http://requestb.in/' + data.name);
  console.log ('Inspect requests: http://requestb.in/' + data.name + '?inspect');
});

npm install requestbin

The callback receives only one parameter err in case of an error. This will be aninstanceof 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.

function callback (errdata) {
  if (!err) {
    console.log (data);
  } else {
    console.log (err);          // message + info properties, ie. details 
    console.log (err.stack);    // what caused it 
  }
}
