Node.js client for hull.io Codeship Status for hull/hull-node

This provides utility functions to use hull.io APIs within Node.js apps.

Usage

var hull = require('hull')


hull.conf({
  appId: 'YOUR_HULL_APP_ID',
  orgUrl: 'YOUR_HULL_ORG_URL',
  appSecret: 'YOUR_HULL_APP_SECRET'
});

// Instanciates a client for the API
var client = hull.client();

API

  • hull.conf(obj) : Returns the global configuration or sets it if an object is given. It's mostly a helper to avoid the necessity of specifying the configuration everytime it is needed.
  • hull.utils.signUserData(userJson/*, appSecret*/) : Creates a signed id for the user passed in parameter. It allows to connect your own users to hull.io services.
  • hull.utils.checkSignedUserId(userId, userSig/*, appSecret*/) : Checks the validity of the signature relatively to a user id
  • hull.middleware(/*appId, appSecret, deserializer*/): Generates a middleware to add to your Connect/Express apps. It will check if a user is onnected.
  • hull.client(): Instanciates an HTTP client to hull.io APIs.

Using the HTTP client

Once you have instanciated a client, you can use one of the get, post, putor delete methods to perform actions of our APIs. The first parameter is the route, the second is the set of parameters you want to send with the request, the third is a callback.

Resources

We have built a demo that uses this library, check out hull_userbase.
