Tumblr Works!

One node.js package lib talks to tumblr API v2 that really works.

The recommended way is through the excellent NPM:

$ npm install tumblrwks
var Tumblr = require('tumblrwks');
 
/*
  You can get the consumerKey and consumerSecret by registing a tumblr app: http://www.tumblr.com/oauth/apps
*/
 
var tumblr = new Tumblr(
  {
    consumerKey: 'your consumer key'
  }//, "arktest.tumblr.com" 
  // specify the blog url now or the time you want to use 
);
 
tumblr.get('/info', {hostname: 'arktest.tumblr.com'}, function(errjson){
  console.log(json);
});
 
// Or with Promises 
tumblr.get('/info', {hostname: 'arktest.tumblr.com'})
    then(function (json) {
        console.log(json);
    }, function (error) {
        console.log(error)
    });
});

Want to post blog? Need to specify more parameters!

var Tumblr = require('tumblrwks');
 
/*
  For accessToken and accessSecret, user need to grant access of your app. I recommend to use: https://github.com/jaredhanson/passport-tumblr
*/
 
var tumblr = new Tumblr(
  {
    consumerKey: 'your consumer key',
    consumerSecret: 'your consumer secret',
    accessToken: 'access token',
    accessSecret: 'access secret'
  }, "arktest.tumblr.com"
  // specify the blog url now or the time you want to use 
);
 
tumblr.post('/post', {type: 'text', title: 'tumblrwkstesting', body: '<h3>should work!! </h3>'}, function(errjson){
    console.log(json);
});
 
// Or with Promises 
tumblr.post('/post', {type: 'text', title: 'tumblrwkstesting', body: '<h3>should work!! </h3>'}).then(function(json) {
    console.log(json);
}, function (error) {
    console.log(error);
});
// upload local photo can work but can not upload multiple photos in a single blog 
// most of the code for this are from ntumblr 
 
// in general, tumblr api sucks 
var photo = fs.readFileSync('./test/img/P1010486.jpg');
 
tumblr.post('/post', {type: 'photo', data: [photo]}, function(errjson){
  console.log(json);
});
 
$ mocha
