    VAST(json)

    Accepts a JSON-formatted VAST document (described below.) All properties of the JSON-formatted VAST document will be copied to the VAST object. Any unspecified properties will be given default values. For example, if no mediaFiles are specified, the default will be an empty Array.

    Here is complete JSON-formatted VAST document:

            }
        ]
    }

    VAST.prototype.wrappers

    Returns all of the ads with type "wrapper."

    VAST.prototype.inlines

    Returns all of the ads with type "inline."

    VAST.prototype.get(prop)

    Gets the specified property from the VAST instance. If one of the parent properties is a non-object, it will return undefined instead of throwing a TypeError.

    VAST.prototype.set(prop, value)

    Sets the specified prop to the provided value. If one of the parent properties is a non-object, it will be converted into a POJO ({}.)

    VAST.prototype.map(array, mapper)

    Uses Vast.prototype.get() to retrieve the array and calls the mapper for each item in the array with the item, index and array. In the mapper, this will refer to the VAST instance. A new Array will be returned containing items with the result of each call of mapper.

    If array does not resolve to an Array, an empty Array will be returned.

    VAST.prototype.filter(array, predicate)

    Uses Vast.prototype.get() to retrieve the array and calls the predicate for each item in the array with the item, index and array. In the predicate, this will refer to the VAST instance. A new Array will be returned containing items for which predicate returned something truthy.

    If array does not resolve to an Array, an empty Array will be returned.

    VAST.prototype.find(array, predicate)

    Uses Vast.prototype.get() to retrieve the array and calls the predicate for each item in the array with the item, index and array. As soon as predicate returns a truthy value, the corresponding item will be returned. If predicate never returns something truthy, undefined will be returned.

    If array does not resolve to an Array, undefined will be returned.

    VAST.prototype.resolveWrappers([maxRedirects], [cb])

    Returns a Promise. This method will make a request for all the wrappers' vastAdTagURIs. A new VAST will be created, with each wrapper being replaced by the ad(s) that were fetched. This process will repeat recursively until there are no more wrappers or maxRedirects is exceeded.

    When there are no more wrappers, the returned Promise will be fulfilled with the new wrapper-free VAST instance. If maxRedirects is exceeded, the Promise will be rejected with an Error.

    If the optional callback cb is provided, it will be called in the Node.js conventional way: (err, result).

    VAST.prototype.copy()

    Returns a new VAST instance that is a copy of this one.

    VAST.prototype.toPOJO()

    Returns the instance converted to JSON-formatted VAST.

    VAST.prototype.toXML()

    Returns the instance converted to VAST XML.

    VAST.pojoFromXML(xml)

    Converts a String of xml into JSON-formatted VAST.

    VAST.fetch(uri, [options], [cb])

    Returns a Promise. This method will make a network request for the provided uri and fulfill the returned Promise with a VAST instance representing the fetched VAST XML.

    options:

    {
        resolveWrappers: Boolean, // Should 'wrapper' ads be automatically resolved?
        maxRedirects: Number // Maximum number of wrapper redirects that should be followed,
        headers: Object // Request headers to include
    }

    If the optional callback cb is provided, it will be called in the Node.js conventional way: (err, result).
