Node.js Typekit API Client

This is a Node.js module that implements the Typekit developers API. It allows you to create, retrieve, delete, update, and publish Typekit kits from your Node.js code.


You can install the client using npm:

$ npm install typekit

and then include it in your code:

var kit = require('typekit');

kit.create(token, {
  name: 'Example',
  families: [{id: 'gkmg'}],
  domains: ['localhost']
}, function (err, data) {
  kit.update(token,, {
    families: ['gkmg', 'gkda']
  }, function (err) {
    kit.publish(token,, function (err) {
      console.log('All done!');


The typekit module has the following methods:

  • create(token, data, callback) Create a new kit;
  • update(token, id, data, callback) Update an existing kit;
  • get(token, id, callback) Get an existing kit;
  • list(token, callback) List all existing kits;
  • remove(token, id, callback) Remove an existing kit;
  • publish(token, id, callback) Publish an existing kit.

The token parameter should be your Typekit API token. The id parameter is a kit identifier, and the callback is always called with two arguments: err and data. If There are no errors err is null.
