    tasc-insight

    This is a library built for interacting with TASC Software Solution's education portal INSIGHT.

    This project was made from scratch in a matter of hours, this is a finalised API for use with future projects after several different attempts and methods. Official TASC website for Insight.

    • Fully typed! 😄
    • Includes 100% test coverage of features.
    • Uses modern and fast libraries, i.e. axios, fast-html-parser

    Background

    • This was initially started because Insight looks like utter garbage, and I can say for certain most of the developers at TASC really threw Insight together on their first try and didn't even bother with it.
    • The version of Insight in production, more specifically the one my school is running:
      • has unminified code hosted on their servers
      • has inline css and js in pretty much all pages
      • uses ASP.NET
      • looks plain ugly, no effort was made to make any of it look good (uses bootstrap too)
        • this would be fine for a developer site, but this is user facing
      • takes forever to load most pages, see test results
      • sends HTML code inside of a JSON object to display on timetable
      • has inconsistent dates everywhere, i.e. 5|6|2000 for fetching timetable week

    Usage

    Install using yarn or npm.

    # using yarn <3 
    yarn add tasc-insight
     
    # using npm 
    npm install tasc-insight --save

    All you need is the Client class which is exported from the root.

    import { Client } from 'tasc-insight';
    let client = new Client('https://path/to/insight');
     
    // all methods are async
    // everything has typescript typings
    await client.login('username', 'password');
    await client.details();
    await client.assignments();
    await client.timetable();
