Installation

$ npm install robinhood --save

Usage

To authenticate, you can either use your username and password to the Robinhood app or a previously authenticated Robinhood api token:

Username & Password

//The username and password you use to sign into the robinhood app.
 
var credentials = {
    username: '',
    password: ''
};

Robinhood API Auth Token

//A previously authenticated Robinhood API auth token
 
var credentials = {
    token: ''
};
var Robinhood = require('robinhood')(credentials, function(){
 
    //Robinhood is connected and you may begin sending commands to the api.
 
    Robinhood.quote_data('GOOG', function(error, response, body) {
        if (error) {
            console.error(error);
            process.exit(1);
        }
        console.log(body);
    });
 
});

API

Before using these methods, make sure you have initialized Robinhood using the snippet above.

auth_token()

Get the current authenticated Robinhood api authentication token

var credentials = require("../credentials.js")();
var Robinhood = require('robinhood')(credentials, function(){
    console.log(Robinhood.auth_token());
        //      <authenticated alphanumeric token>
}

expire_token()

Expire the current authenticated Robinhood api token (logout).

NOTE: After expiring a token you will need to reinstantiate the package with username & password in order to get a new token!

var credentials = require("../credentials.js")();
var Robinhood = require('robinhood')(credentials, function(){
    Robinhood.expire_token(function(err, response, body){
        if(err){
            console.error(err);
        }else{
            console.log("Successfully logged out of Robinhood and expired token.");
            // NOTE: body is undefined on the callback
        }
    })
});

Furthermore, I believe they are working on an amazing product, and hope that by publishing this NodeJS framework their users can benefit in even more ways from working with them.
