Example use

The examples below are not intended to replace a working knowledge of the Crocodoc API, nor do they cover all possible uses and responses of the crocodoc-node client library.

They cover the main uses, assuming no errors.

More detailed descriptions of the client library behaviours, including errors, can be found in test-results\*.txt. These files were generated from the mocha test suite with the spec reporter.

DocumentAPI

var documentApi = new require('crocodoc-node').CrocodocAPI('API_TOKEN').documentAPI;

Uploading a local file to Crocodoc

documentApi.uploadFile(pathToSupportedFile, function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body.uuid should be a non-empty string: ', body.uuid);
});

Uploading a URL to Crocodoc

documentApi.uploadUrl('http://web.crocodoc.com/files/test-simple.pdf', function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body.uuid should be a non-empty string: ', body.uuid);
});

Getting an uploaded document's status

For a single document:

documentApi.status(docUuid, function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body should be an array containing a single status', body);
});

OR for multiple documents:

documentApi.status([docUuid1, docUuid2, ...] , function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body should be an array containing a single status', body);
});

Deleting an uploaded document

documentApi.remove(docUuid, function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body should be true', body);
});

Poll for completion

This is additional to the Crocodoc API, and is provided as a helper.

documentApi.poll(docUuid, function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body should be a single status', body);
});

The callback will not be invoked until the document has finished converting (or the conversion has failed). The body contains the retrieved document status indicating conversion completion or failure.

SessionAPI

var sessionApi = new require('crocodoc-node').CrocodocAPI('API_TOKEN').sessionAPI;

Creating a new session

With supplied session options:

sessionApi.create(docUuid, {editable:false, downloadable: true}, function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body.session should be a non-empty string', body.session);
});

With default session options:

sessionApi.create(docUuid, function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body.session should be a non-empty string', body.session);
});

DownloadAPI

var fs = require('fs');
var downloadApi = new require('crocodoc-node').CrocodocAPI('API_TOKEN').downloadAPI;

Downloading the original document

downloadApi.document(docUuid, fs.createWriteStream('filePath.orig'), function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body.uuid should be a non-empty string', body.uuid);
});

Downloading the document as a PDF

downloadApi.document(docUuid, {pdf: true}, fs.createWriteStream('filePath.pdf'), function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body.uuid should be a non-empty string', body.uuid);
});

Downloading the document's thumbnail

downloadApi.thumbnail(docUuid, '150x150', fs.createWriteStream('filePath.png'), function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body.uuid should be a non-empty string', body.uuid);
});

Downloading the extracted text for a document

downloadApi.text(docUuid,  fs.createWriteStream('filePath.txt'), function(error, response, body) {
  console.log('error should be falsey: ', error);
  console.log('response.statusCode should be 200: ', response.statusCode);
  console.log('body.uuid should be a non-empty string', body.uuid);
});

Contributing

Fork from: https://github.com/NetDevLtd/crocodoc-node

All contributions and constructive suggestions are welcome.

Set-up

Once you've cloned your fork to a local repo, to install all the dependencies, run:

$ make install

You can then run make lint and make test, to de-lint and run the tests, respectively.

In order to run the tests, you will need to configure the test framework with your Crocodoc API token:

edit test/framework/crocodoc-details.js, and change DUMMY-TOKEN to your API token.

If you don't do this, many of the tests will fail!

To make git stop tracking changes to this file, so that your sensitive API token doesn't get accidentally committed:

$ git update-index --assume-unchanged test/framework/crocodoc-details.js

You can still explicitly git add it, or if you want to turn tracking on again:

$ git update-index --no-assume-unchanged test/framework/crocodoc-details.js

These instructions are duplicated in the file.

Pull requests

Please ensure that Pull Requests:

  • are lint-free: make lint, with an unmodified jshint.json
  • include new / modified mocha tests: these should be in test/spec
  • pass all tests: make test reports no errors.
