A RESTful API wrapper for the npm module (useful for mobile clients)
npm install rest-npm
rest-npm takes two parameters. A port to run on, and an
object that defines what commands the API will accept as well as the number of arguments
each one requires.
var restNpm = require'rest-npm'// Configure with port and valid commandsrestNpmstart3000// view command accepts between 1 and 5 paramsview: 1 5// search command accepts 1 and only 1 paramsearch: 1;
The query structure is very simple. I wanted to mirror the npm cli interface as close as possible so the structure is very generic.
# Basic structure/<COMMAND>?p=<PARAM_1>&p=<PARAM_2>&p=<PARAM_3># Sample search query# npm search blog/search?p=blog# View module name, description and version# npm view express name description version/view?p=express&p=name&p=description&p=version
