Steam Web API for node

A Steam API Key is needed to use this module.

To install:

npm install steamAPI

To use:

var steam = require('steamAPI').configure('yourSteamAPIKey');

//Returns a JSON object of Robin Walker's TF2 Backpack

All methods accept an optional object for parameters, and require a callback function.

  format: 'json',               // default - ['json', 'xml', 'vdf']
  gameid: '440',                // default - see valve documentation for more gameids
  steamid: '76561197960435530', // default -  Robin Walker's steam id <3
  version: '0001'               // default
}, console.log);                // function(err, result){}

This method uses an array of 64bit Steamids in the query. The Steam Web API limits the request to 100 steamids.

  steamids: ['76561197960435530']
}, console.log);

By default, all methods will use version 0001. Currently the Steam Web API (non-TF2) methods support version 0002. To use the newest version please specify within the parameter object.

  appid: '440',
  version: '0002'
}, console.log);
