npm version npm downloads dependencies license paypal

SteamUser is a handler module for node-steam version 1.0.0 or greater. It also works with node-steam-client.

It's designed to be a self-contained module which provides all the functionality expected of a Steam user client.

Contents

Enums ^

There are a lot of enums used in Steam. They're all available directly from SteamUser. For example, access EResult using SteamUser.EResult.

All enums can be viewed on GitHub.

Additionally, for convenience, the name of an enum value is available from any enum at the key identified by the enum value. For example, given an EResult of 88 you can translate it using SteamUser.EResult[88] which gives you the string TwoFactorCodeMismatch.

Static Properties ^

Static properties, or properties attached directly to SteamUser, are accessed on the root module and not on instantiated handler instances.

Steam

The node-steam-client module installation used by SteamUser. You can use this in place of require('steam-client') if you'd like to avoid duplicate installations. As of v3.7.0, all enums are built into SteamUser so you probably won't need to use this. Example of using EResult:

var ok = SteamUser.EResult.OK;

Static Methods ^

Static methods, or functions attached directly to SteamUser, are called on the root module and not on instantiated handler instances.

formatCurrency(amount, currency)

  • amount - The amount of the currency
  • currency - The currency code value in the ECurrencyCode enum

Formats a currency value and returns a string. For example:

console.log(SteamUser.formatCurrency(12.34, SteamUser.ECurrencyCode.USD)); // $12.34
console.log(SteamUser.formatCurrency(12345, SteamUser.ECurrencyCode.JPY)); // � 12345
console.log(SteamUser.formatCurrency(123.45, SteamUser.ECurrencyCode.EUR)); // 123,45�

generateAuthCode(secret[, timeOffset])

  • secret - A Buffer, hex string, or base64 string containing your shared secret
  • timeOffset - The number of seconds by which your local clock is off from the Steam servers. Defaults to 0.

Generates a 5-digit alphanumeric Steam Guard code for use with two-factor mobile authentication.

Deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Use steam-totp instead.

Options ^

There are a number of options which can control the behavior of the SteamUser object. They are:

dataDirectory

Controls where the Steam server list and sentry files are written. If null, no data will be automatically stored.

Defaults to a platform-specific user data directory.

  • On OpenShift, this is $OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR/node-steamuser
  • On Windows, this is %localappdata%\doctormckay\node-steamuser
  • On Mac, this is ~/Library/Application Support/node-steamuser
  • On Linux, this is $XDG_DATA_HOME/node-steamuser, or ~/.local/share/node-steamuser if $XDG_DATA_HOME isn't defined or is empty

Custom Storage Engine

If you don't want to (or can't) save data to the disk, you can implement your own storage engine. To do this, simply add the following code:

user.storage.on('save', function(filename, contents, callback) {
    // filename is the name of the file, as a string
    // contents is a Buffer containing the file's contents
    // callback is a function which you MUST call on completion or error, with a single error argument
 
    // For example:
    someStorageSystem.saveFile(filename, contents, function(err) {
        callback(err);
    });
});
 
user.storage.on('read', function(filename, callback) {
    // filename is the name of the file, as a string
    // callback is a function which you MUST call on completion or error, with an error argument and a Buffer argument
 
    // For example:
    someStorageSystem.readFile(filename, function(err, file) {
        if(err) {
            callback(err);
            return;
        }
 
        callback(null, file);
    });
});

In this manner, you can save data to a database, a cloud service, or anything else you choose.

autoRelogin

A boolean which controls whether or not SteamUser will automatically reconnect to Steam if disconnected due to Steam going down.

Defaults to true.

singleSentryfile

A boolean which controls whether or not SteamUser will use a single sentry file for all accounts.

If off, a file named sentry.accountname.bin will be saved for each account. If on, a file named sentry.bin will be used for all accounts.

Defaults to false.

promptSteamGuardCode

A boolean which controls whether or not SteamUser will automatically prompt for Steam Guard codes when necessary from stdin.

Defaults to true.

machineIdType

What kind of machine ID will SteamUser send to Steam when logging on? Should be a value from EMachineIDType.

Added in 1.7.0.

Defaults to AccountNameGenerated.

machineIdFormat

If you're using machineIdType AccountGenerated, this is the format it uses. This is an array of three strings, each of which will be hashed with SHA1 before being sent to Steam. {account_name} will be replaced with the current account name.

Added in 1.13.0.

Defaults to ["SteamUser Hash BB3 {account_name}", "SteamUser Hash FF2 {account_name}", "SteamUser Hash 3B3 {account_name}"].

enablePicsCache

If enabled, then node-steam-user will internally cache data about all apps and packages that it knows about. Currently, node-steam-user "knows about" an app/package if:

  • Packages
    • You own it
    • You request info about it via getProductInfo
  • Apps
    • It's in a known package
    • You request info about it via getProductInfo
    • A friend who is online plays the app
    • You request info about an online user who is playing it via getPersonas

This option is required in order to use several methods and events. This works when logging in anonymously.

Added in 3.3.0.

Defaults to false.

picsCacheAll

If enabled, enablePicsCache is enabled, and changelistUpdateInterval is nonzero, then apps and packages which get updated while your bot is running will also be added to the cache. Default behavior is to only cache apps and packages that are "known" via the above criteria.

Added in 3.3.0.

Defaults to false.

changelistUpdateInterval

If enablePicsCache is enabled, then node-steam-user will automatically request app/package changes (via getProductChanges) for known apps and packages, and update the internal cache when they update. Set to 0 to disable.

Added in 3.3.0.

Defaults to 60000.

Methods ^

Constructor([client][, options])

  • client - An optional SteamClient to use to connect to Steam. If not provided, one will be created automatically.
  • options - An optional object containing zero or more options to set for this SteamUser.

Constructs a new SteamUser. If you allow SteamUser to create its own SteamClient, then SteamUser will automatically save and reload the CM server list.

setOption(option, value)

  • option - The name of the option to set
  • value - The value to set for this option

Changes the value of an option.

setOptions(options)

  • options - An object containing zero or more options.

setSentry(sentry)

  • sentry - A Buffer containing the binary sentry file, binary SHA1 hash, or null to unset the set sentry

If you aren't using dataDirectory or you just want to provide your own sentry file, you can do it using this method.

You should call this before calling logOn. When you log on, SteamUser will use this sentry file.

You can provide either an entire sentryfile (preferred), or a Buffer containing the binary SHA1 hash of your sentryfile (e.g. the output of the sentry event in node-steam 0.6.x).

logOn([details])

  • details - An object containing details for this logon
    • accountName - If logging into a user account, the account's name
    • password - If logging into an account without a login key, the account's password
    • authCode - If you have a Steam Guard email code, you can provide it here. You might not need to, see the steamGuard event. (Added in 1.9.0)
    • twoFactorCode - If you have a Steam Guard mobile two-factor authentication code, you can provide it here. You might not need to, see the steamGuard event. (Added in 1.9.0)
    • loginKey - If logging into an account with a login key, this is the account's login key
    • rememberPassword - true if you want to get a login key which can be used in lieu of a password for subsequent logins. false or omitted otherwise.
    • logonID - A number to identify this login. The official Steam client derives this from your machine's private IP (it's the obfustucated_private_ip field in CMsgClientLogOn). If you try to logon twice to the same account from the same public IP with the same logonID, the first session will be kicked with reason SteamUser.EResult.LogonSessionReplaced. Defaults to 0 if not specified.
    • machineName - A string containing the name of this machine that you want to report to Steam. This will be displayed on steamcommunity.com when you view your games list (when logged in).
    • dontRememberMachine - If you're providing an authCode but you don't want Steam to remember this sentryfile, pass true here.

v3.11.0 or later is required to use machineName or dontRememberMachine.

Logs onto Steam. The CMClient/SteamClient should not be already logged on, although as of v3.4.0 it can be connected. Omit the details object if you wish to login to an anonymous user account.

logOff()

Logs you off of Steam and closes the connection.

relog()

v3.18.0 or later is required to use this method

Logs you off of Steam and then immediately back on. If you aren't logged into an anonymous account, then you must set rememberPassword to true when logging on initially to use this. You also must wait for the loginKey event to be emitted before you can use this. Attempts to call this method without both criteria being met will result in an Error being thrown and nothing else will happen.

When used, disconnected and then loggedOn will be emitted in succession. This is essentially the same as using logOff() and then calling logOn() immediately in the disconnected event callback.

webLogOn()

SteamUser will automatically log onto steamcommunity.com when a successful connection to Steam is established (as an individual user), but you can call webLogOn() to create a new session if your old one expires or becomes invalid.

Listen for the webSession event to get your cookies.

createAccount(accountName, password, email, callback)

  • accountName - The username of your new account
  • password - The password for your new account
  • email - The contact email for your new account
  • callback - Called when the account is either created or an error occurs

      • SteamUser.EResult.OK if the account was created successfully
      • SteamUser.EResult.DuplicateName if there is already an account with that username
      • SteamUser.EResult.IllegalPassword if your password is too weak or otherwise bad
      • or something else on another error
    • steamid - If successful, this is a SteamID object containing the new account's SteamID

Creates a new individual user Steam account. You must be logged on either anonymously or as an existing individual user to use this.

Currently it seems that Steam is not properly sending back the SteamID of the newly-created account. The steamid argument in the callback is currently null.

requestValidationEmail([callback])

  • callback - Optional. Called when a response is available
    • result - A value from SteamUser.EResult. SteamUser.EResult.OK if the mail was sent successfully.

Requests Steam to send you a validation email to your registered email address.

enableTwoFactor(callback)

  • callback - Required. Called when the activation email has been sent.
    • response - An object containing the response data

v2.0.0 or later is required to use this method

Starts the process to turn on TOTP for your account. You must have a phone number already linked with and verified on your account.

You'll be sent an SMS with an activation code that you'll need to provide to finalizeTwoFactor.

You should save the entire response object somewhere secure. You can use JSON.stringify on it safely.

Properties of note in the response object:

  • status - A value from EResult. If this is not OK (1), then the request failed.
  • shared_secret - This is your secret that's used for two-factor authentication.
  • revocation_code - You will need this in the future to disable two-factor authentication.

finalizeTwoFactor(secret, activationCode, callback)

  • secret - A Buffer containing your shared secret
  • activationCode - A string containing the activation code you got in your SMS
  • callback - Required.
    • err - An Error object on failure, or null on success

v2.0.0 or later is required to use this method

Finishes the process of enabling TOTP two-factor authentication for your account. You can use steam-totp in the future when logging on to get a code.

If TOTP two-factor authentication is enabled, a code will be required on every login unless a loginKey is used.

disableTwoFactor(options, callback)

This method no longer works. Attempts to call it will result in an Error being thrown. Use node-steamcommunity instead.

getSteamGuardDetails(callback)

  • callback - A function to be called when the requested data is available
    • enabled - true if Steam Guard is enabled for your account, false if not
    • enabledTime - A Date object representing when Steam Guard was enabled for your account, or null if not available
    • machineTime - A Date object representing when your current machine was authorized with Steam Guard, or null if not available

v1.11.0 or later is required to use this method. v1.12.0 or later is required to use canTrade. v3.3.3 or later is required to use twofactorTime. v3.5.0 or later is required to use hasPhone.

Requests details about your account's Steam Guard status. This could be used to see if your account passes the Steam Guard trading requirements.

In order to trade, all of the following must be true:

  • enabled must be true (account-level restriction)
  • enabledTime must be at least 15 days ago (account-level restriction)
  • ONE of machineTime OR twoFactorTime must be at least 7 days ago (sentryfile-level restriction)

getCredentialChangeTimes(callback)

  • callback - A function to be called when the requested data is available
    • lastPasswordChange - A Date object representing when your password was last changed, or null if never changed
    • lastPasswordReset - A Date object representing when your password was last reset via the "forgot your password" utility, or null if never reset

Gets your account's auth secret, which is the pre-shared key used for in-home streaming.

requestPasswordChangeEmail(currentPassword[, callback])

  • currentPassword - Your account's current password, pre-change
  • callback - Optional. Called when the request completes.
    • err - null on success, or an Error object on failure

v3.13.0 or later is required to use this method

Requests Steam to send you an email that contains a code you can supply to changePassword in order to change your account's password. If you have a Mobile Authenticator enabled, this will return success but not actually do anything. With 2FA, you should use a 2FA code instead of an email code.

changePassword(oldPassword, newPassword, code[, callback])

  • oldPassword - Your account's current (old) password
  • newPassword - Your desired new password
  • code - Either the code sent to your email from requestPasswordChangeEmail or your current Mobile Authenticator 2FA code (if you have 2FA on)
  • callback - Optional. Called when the request completes.
    • err - null on success, or an Error object on failure

v3.13.0 or later is required to use this method

Changes your Steam account's password. This won't effect any trading restrictions.

changeEmail(options[, callback])

  • options - An object containing (some of) the following properties:
    • password - Required. Your account's current password.
    • newEmail - Required. The new email address you want to set on your account.
    • code - Optional (at first). The verification code sent to your new email (see below).
    • twoFactorCode - Optional (if you don't have 2FA enabled). If you do have 2FA (Mobile Authenticator) enabled, this is your current 2FA code (when confirming code).
    • smsCode - Optional (if Steam doesn't want it). See below.
  • callback - Optional. Called when the request completes.
    • err - null on success, or an Error object on failure
    • needsSmsCode - true if Steam wants an SMS verification code (see below).

v3.13.0 or later is required to use this method.

Performs both steps in the two-step process that is changing your account's contact email. First, call this with only your password and newEmail. This will cause Steam to send an email to your new email address containing a verification code. Once you have that code, call this again with your password, newEmail, and code.

If you have a Mobile Authenticator (2FA) enabled on your account, then for the second request you will need to include your current 2FA code as twoFactorCode. If you don't and needsSmsCode was true in the callback to the first request, then Steam has sent a verification code in an SMS to your phone. In this case, you need to provide that code as smsCode in the second request.

needsSmsCode may still be true in the callback to the second request. In this case, simply ignore it. If you received no err, then your email was changed. The emailInfo event will be emitted when your email changes.

Changing your account's email will start a 5-day trading cooldown.

kickPlayingSession([callback])

  • callback - Optional. A function to be called once Steam receives and responds to this request.
    • err - An Error object on failure, or null on success

v3.21.0 or later is required to use this method

If this account is being used to play a game on another logon session, calling this method will kick that other session off of Steam entirely (it will get an error event if the other session is using node-steam-user).

gamesPlayed(apps[, force])

  • apps - An array, object, string, or number (see below)
  • force - Optional, default false. If true and this account is playing a game elsewhere, calls kickPlayingSession first.

v3.21.0 or later is required to use force

Reports to Steam that you're playing or using zero or more games/apps. To exit all games/apps, use an empty array [].

To play a single game by AppID, use a single integer (e.g. 440)

To play a single non-Steam game by name, use a single string (e.g. "Minecraft")

To play a single game by AppID and name (the client-provided name is what is given to the WebAPI and mobile app), use an object of this format:

{
    "game_id": 440,
    "game_extra_info": "Team Fortress 2"
}

You can use multiple apps by providing an array of any mixture of the above formats.

Older free-to-play games are in the "Steam" package (package ID 0). This package is automatically granted to all accounts (but not anonymous ones). Games in this package do not need a license to be explicitly requested.

All newer free-to-play games have "free-on-demand packages". These are packages that are not automatically granted to all accounts, but will be granted upon request ("on demand"). This is so that the Steam client can show free-to-play games you have previously added to your library when not installed. In order to "play" any free-to-play app that isn't in sub 0, you need to request a license for it using this method.

If successful, calling this method will result in the licenses event being emitted containing your new license(s).

    • ticket - If successful, this is your encrypted appticket as a Buffer. You should provide the entire contents of the Buffer to the recipient.

v3.14.0 or later is required to use this method

Requests an "encrypted app ticket" from Steam servers for a particular game. This can be used to prove your ownership of an app and also your account identity to some publisher server, provided they're expecting an encrypted app ticket. To use encrypted app tickets, publishers must set up an encryption key in the Steamworks backend. Therefore, this will not work if encrypted tickets haven't been set up for the AppID you request a ticket for. You cannot decrypt an encrypted app ticket, nor can you view anything it contains. It is for all intents and purposes an opaque blob of binary data which only the developer/publisher of the game can do anything with.

Events ^

ID Events

Events marked as ID events are special. They all have a SteamID object as their first parameter. In addition to the event itself firing, a second event comprised of eventName + "#" + steamID.getSteamID64() is fired.

For example:

// This will fire when we receive a chat message from ANY friend
user.on('friendMessage', function(steamID, message) {
    console.log("Friend message from " + steamID.getSteam3RenderedID() + "" + message);
});
 
// This will fire when we receive a chat message from [U:1:46143802] / 76561198006409530 ONLY
user.on('friendMessage#76561198006409530', function(steamID, message) {
    console.log("Friend message from " + steamID.getSteam3RenderedID() + "" + message);
});

loggedOn

  • details - An object containing various details about your account (see CMsgClientLogonResponse)
  • parental - An object containing your parental controls settings

v3.5.0 or later is required to use parental.

Emitted when you're successfully logged into Steam.

steamGuard

  • domain - If an email code is needed, the domain name of the address where the email was sent. null if an app code is needed.
  • callback - Should be called when the code is available.
    • code - The Steam Guard auth code
  • lastCodeWrong - true if you're using 2FA and the last code you provided was wrong, false otherwise

If the promptSteamGuardCode option is disabled, this event will be emitted when Steam requests a Steam Guard code from us. You should collect the code from the user somehow and then call the callback with the code as the sole argument.

Example:

user.on('steamGuard', function(domain, callback) {
    console.log("Steam Guard code needed from email ending in " + domain);
    var code = getCodeSomehow();
    callback(code);
});

error

  • err - An Error object

Emitted when an error occurs during logon. Also emitted if we're disconnected and autoRelogin is either disabled, or it's a fatal disconnect.

If this event isn't handled, the program will crash.

The SteamUser object's steamID property will still be defined when this is emitted. The Error object will have an eresult parameter which is a value from the EResult enum.

disconnected

  • eresult - A value from the SteamUser.EResult enum
  • msg - A string describing the reason for the disconnect, if available (might be undefined)

Emitted when we're disconnected from Steam for a non-fatal reason and autoRelogin is enabled. SteamUser will continually retry connection and will either emit loggedOn when logged back on, or error if a fatal logon error is experienced.

Also emitted in response to a logOff() call.

The SteamUser object's steamID property will still be defined when this is emitted.

The eresult value might be 0 (Invalid), which indicates that the disconnection was due to the connection being closed directly, without Steam sending a LoggedOff message.

sentry

  • sentry - A Buffer containing your new sentry file

Emitted when Steam sends us a new sentry file. By default, SteamUser will automatically save and reuse this sentry file for subsequent logins, but if you wish you may handle it yourself (see setSentry).

webSession

  • sessionID - The value of the sessionid cookie
  • cookies - An array of cookies, as name=value strings

Emitted when a steamcommunity.com web session is successfully negotiated. This will automatically be emitted on logon and in response to webLogOn calls.

Some libraries require you to provide your sessionID, others don't. If your library doesn't, you can safely ignore it.

Read more about how cookies work and interact with other modules.

loginKey

  • key - Your login key

If you enabled rememberPassword in logOn, this will be emitted when Steam sends us a new login key. This key can be passed to logOn as loginKey in lieu of a password on subsequent logins.

At this time, I'm not sure if login keys expire, so to be safe you should record this somewhere (in a database, in a file, etc) and overwrite it every time the event is emitted.

newItems

  • count - How many new items you have (can be 0)

Emitted when Steam sends a notification of new items. You can reset the count to 0 by loading your inventory page (https://steamcommunity.com/my/inventory) while logged in.

  • myItems - How many of the total comments are on your content (workshop items, screenshots, your profile, etc.)
  • discussions - How many of the total comments are posts in subscribed discussion threads

Emitted when Steam sends a notification of new trade offers.

offlineMessages

  • count - How many unread offline chat messages you have
  • friends - An array of SteamID strings for the users who have sent you unread offline chat messages

Emitted when Steam sends a notification of unread offline chat messages. This will always be emitted after logon, even if you have no messages.

vanityURL

  • url - Your new vanity URL

v3.7.0 or later is required to use this event

Emitted when your vanity URL changes. url is your new vanity URL. This event is emitted before the vanityURL property is updated, so you can compare to see what changed.

  • country - The character code from which you're logging in (via GeoIP), e.g. "US"
  • authedMachines - How many machines are authorized to login to your account with Steam Guard

  • facebookName - If your account is linked with Facebook, this is your (real) name on Facebook

v3.4.0 or later is required to use this event

Emitted on logon and when account info changes. This event is emitted before the accountInfo property is updated, so you can compare to see what changed.

emailInfo

  • address - Your account's email address
  • validated - A boolean value for whether or not your email address is validated

Emitted on logon and when email info changes. The emailInfo property will be updated after this event is emitted.

accountLimitations

  • communityBanned - true if your account is banned from Steam Community, false if not
  • locked - true if your account is locked, false if not (accounts can also be locked by Support)

Emitted on logon and when limitations change. The limitations property will be updated after this event is emitted.

vacBans

  • numBans - How many bans your account has
  • appids - The AppIDs from which you're banned. Since each ban affects a range of AppIDs, some of the AppIDs in this array may not exist.

Emitted on logon and probably when you get banned/unbanned. The vac property will be updated after this event is emitted.

wallet

  • hasWallet - true if your account has a Steam Wallet, false if not
  • currency - The currency ID of your account's wallet (the enum of currencies is available as SteamUser.ECurrencyCode)
  • balance - Your account's current wallet balance

Emitted on logon and when wallet balance changes. The wallet property will be updated after this event is emitted.

licenses

  • licenses - An array of licenses

Contains the license data for the packages which your Steam account owns. To see license object structure, see CMsgClientLicenseList.License.

Emitted on logon and when licenses change. The licenses property will be updated after this event is emitted.

This isn't emitted for anonymous accounts. However, all anonymous user accounts have a license for package 17906 automatically.

gifts

  • gifts - An array of gift objects

Emitted on logon and when you receive/accept/decline a gift or guest pass. The gifts property will be updated after this event is emitted.

Guest Passes (do they even still exist?) are gifts (actually, gifts are Guest Passes with a very long expiration date). Consequently, both come through this event.

Each object in the array is an oustanding gift or guest pass that was sent to you that you haven't accepted/declined yet. Only outstanding gifts show up here. Gifts that you stored in your inventory don't show up here.

The structure of the objects in the array is defined in the documentation for the gifts property.

appOwnershipCached

v3.3.0 or later is required to use this event

This is only emitted if enablePicsCache is true and changelistUpdateInterval is nonzero.

appUpdate

  • appid - The AppID of the app which just changed
