node-bossgeo

A node.js wrapper for the Yahoo! BOSS Geo API.

Installation

npm install bossgeo

Usage

First, create a client using your consumer key and consumer secret:

var BossGeoClient = require('bossgeo').BossGeoClient;
var bossgeo = new BossGeoClient(
    'consumerKey',
    'consumerSecret'
);

Then, you may query the PlaceFinder and PlaceSpotter services as follows:

bossgeo.placefinder({
    q: '701 first avenue sunnnyvale'
}, function(err, res) {
    if (err) {
        console.log('error: ' + err);
        return;
    }

    console.log(JSON.stringify(res, null, 4));
});

bossgeo.placespotter({
    documentType: 'text/plain',
    documentContent: 'I live in San Francisco.'
}, function(err, res) {
    if (err) {
        console.log('error: ' + err);
        return;
    }

    console.log(JSON.stringify(res, null, 4));
});
