node-lou

This node library provides methods to connect to the Lord of Ultima game API.

Usage

You must first connect to LoU using the createClient() method. Once the connection is made you can then request info from LoU easily.

var lou = require('lou')

lou.createClient({
  acct: {
    email: 'myemail@domain.com'
  , pass: 'myloupassword'
  }
, world: {
    id: 55
  , url: 'prodgame10.lordofultima.com/128'
  }
}, function(err){
  if(err) console.log(err)
  else {
    lou.get.player([1,17], function(err, res){
      if(err) console.log(err)
      else {
        console.log(res)
      }
    })
  }
})
