node-hnsearch is a thin wrapper around the HNSearch REST API. Since node-hnsearch is such a thin wrapper, consulting the documentation provided by HNSearch is highly advised.

Installation

Download

$ npm install hnsearch

Require

var hnsearch = require('hnsearch');

API

hnsearch.submissions(query, cb)

hnsearch.comments(query, cb)

hnsearch.users(query, cb)

Use for querying submissions, comments, and users, respectively, against HNSearch's search API. query is the object containing the key-value pairs that the query string will be composed of. cb is the callback function that will be called when the response from HNSearch is received. It should support a (err, response) signature.

Details about the query fields and the response object can be found on the HNSearch API website.

Example

var hnsearch = require('hnsearch');

hnsearch.submissions({ q: 'javascript semicolons' }, function(err, response) {
  if (err) { process.exit(1); }

  console.log('Comments about semicolons and javascript!');
  response.results.forEach(function(result) { 
    console.log(result.item.text); 
  });
});
