This project is still updated and used by hubot-stackstorm, but it is officially deprecated.

Please refer to for the documentation on the latest version of the StackStorm API.

StackStorm ST2 JavaScript bindings

Officially supported node.js/browserify client library for using ST2 APIs.

The library (and the whole API, to be fair) is in Alpha, so incompatible changes should be expected.


The library is distributed through the npm. To install it, run:

npm install st2client


Depending on the environment, you need to either require it (node\browserify)

var api = require('st2client')();

or add a script tag to the head of your index.html and access it through the global variable

<script src="node_modules/st2client/dist/st2client.js"></script>
  var api = st2client(config);

In both cases, st2client is a factory that takes config object as an argument and returns an api object with a number of entities (actions, actionExecutions, rules, ...) each having a set of methods (list(), get(), create(), ...). Method returns an A+ compliant promise or throws an error if it can't make a request due to insufficient data (i.e. id in api.actions.get(id) is undefined).



Please refer to StackStorm Docs.


To build it manually, clone the project, install dependencies and then run gulp

npm install -g gulp
npm install

You can also launch gulp in a watch state so it would lint and recompile browserify version every time it will detect the change.

Integration tests require st2 to be present. To set up dev environment and run StackStorm, follow these instructions.

Running Unit Tests

gulp test

or, to run tests with coverage results:

npm test

Running Browser tests

gulp test-browser

Running Integration tests

For the integration tests to work, all the StackStorm services including authentication service need to be running and accessible to the client.

The client assume you are using Vagrant setup so it will try to connect to auth service running on using username testu and password testp.

Username and password used for authentication can be configured in integration/config.js.

gulp test-integration
