tumblrbot

Hubot-compatible Tumblr API wrapper for Node.js

A Hubot-compatible Tumblr API wrapper for Node.js

npm install tumblrbot

Use it in your Hubot script:

module.exports = (robot) ->
  tumblr = require('tumblrbot')(robot)

Or use it on its own:

tumblr = require('tumblrbot')
# Get the latest 3 posts 
tumblr.posts("funblog.tumblr.com").last 3(data) ->
  console.log post.title for post in data.posts

The following options are available to help you filter by post type: posts, text, quote, link, answer, video, audio, photo.

# Get the most recent video post 
tumblr.video("funblog.tumblr.com").last (data) ->
  console.log data.posts[0].title
 
# Or use the plural form (it's just an alias) 
tumblr.videos("funblog.tumblr.com").last (data) ->
  console.log data.posts[0].title
 
# Or get it without the array 
tumblr.video("funblog.tumblr.com").one (post) ->
  console.log post.title

You can pass any options specified in the Tumblr API:

tumblr.posts("funblog.tumblr.com").last 2{ tag: "potatoes" }(data) ->
  console.log post.title for post in data.posts

Get a random photo post:

tumblr.photo("funblog.tumblr.com").random (post) ->
  console.log post.photos[0].original_size.url

If process.env.HUBOT_TUMBLR_API_KEY is present, you're automatically authenticated. Sweet!

Hubot will log errors if a request fails.
