Official Spark cloud API library.

SparkJS: A Javascript library for Spark devices

SparkJS is a library for interacting with your cores and the Spark Cloud. It uses node.js and can run on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux fairly easily. It can also run in the browser without node.js. It's also open source so you can edit, change or even send in pull requests if you want to share!

Complete documentation can be found in ParticleJS Docs

First, make sure you have node.js installed!

Next, open a command prompt or terminal, and install by typing:

$ npm install -g spark
var Spark = require('spark');
Spark.login({ username: '', password: 'password' }, function(errbody) {
  console.log('API call login completed on callback:', body);

It's important that you login before executing any command.

Every function returns a promise for you to handle the async result, or you can pass a callback function. (Please note that if a callback function is passed, the function will return null instead of a promise)

More examples on how to use promises/callbacks visit:

  • compileCode
  • createUser
  • callFunction
  • claimCore
  • downloadBinary
  • flashCore
  • getAttributes
  • getAttributesForAll
  • getEventStream
  • getVariable
  • listDevices
  • login
  • onEvent
  • publishEvent
  • removeCore
  • removeToken
  • renameCore
  • signalCore

You can get a list of devices by calling: Spark.devices

Each device has the following parameters:

  • name
  • connected
  • variables
  • functions
  • version
  • requiresUpgrade

And you can call the following commands on it:

  • callFunction
  • claim
  • flash
  • subscribe
  • getVariable
  • onEvent
  • remove
  • rename
  • sendPublicKey
  • signal
  • stopSignal
  • getAttributes
