octonode

octonode is a library for nodejs to access the github v3 api

Installation

npm install octonode

Usage

var github = require('octonode');

// Then we instanciate a client with or without a token (as show in a later section)

var ghme        = client.me();
var ghuser      = client.user('pksunkara');
var ghrepo      = client.repo('pksunkara/hub');
var ghorg       = client.org('flatiron');
var ghissue     = client.issue('pksunkara/hub', 37);
var ghmilestone = client.milestone('pksunkara/hub', 37);
var ghpr        = client.pr('pksunkara/hub', 37);
var ghgist      = client.gist();
var ghteam      = client.team(37);

var ghsearch = client.search();

Build a client which accesses any public information

var client = github.client();

client.get('/users/pksunkara', {}, function (err, status, body, headers) {
  console.log(body); //json object
});

Build a client from an access token

var client = github.client('someaccesstoken');

client.get('/user', {}, function (err, status, body, headers) {
  console.log(body); //json object
});

Build a client from credentials

var client = github.client({
  username: 'pksunkara',
  password: 'password'
});

client.get('/user', {}, function (err, status, body, headers) {
  console.log(body); //json object
});

Build a client from client keys

var client = github.client({
  id: 'abcdefghijklmno',
  secret: 'abcdefghijk'
});

client.get('/user', {}, function (err, status, body, headers) {
  console.log(body); //json object
});

Request Options

Request options can be set by setting defaults on the client. (e.g. Proxies)

var client = github.client();

client.requestDefaults['proxy'] = 'https://myproxy.com:1085'

These options are passed though to request, see their API here: https://github.com/mikeal/request#requestoptions-callback

Proxies

You can set proxies dynamically by using the example above, but Octonode will respect environment proxies by default. Just set this using: export HTTP_PROXY='https://myproxy.com:1085' if you are using the command line

Many of the below use cases use parts of the above code

Authentication

Authenticate to github in cli mode (desktop application)

github.auth.config({
  username: 'pksunkara',
  password: 'password'
}).login(['user', 'repo', 'gist'], function (err, id, token) {
  console.log(id, token);
});

Revoke authentication to github in cli mode (desktop application)

github.auth.config({
  username: 'pksunkara',
  password: 'password'
}).revoke(id, function (err) {
  if (err) throw err;
});

Authenticate to github in web mode (web application)

// Web application which authenticates to github
var http = require('http')
  , url = require('url')
  , qs = require('querystring')
  , github = require('octonode');

// Build the authorization config and url
var auth_url = github.auth.config({
  id: 'mygithubclientid',
  secret: 'mygithubclientsecret'
}).login(['user', 'repo', 'gist']);

// Store info to verify against CSRF
var state = auth_url.match(/&state=([0-9a-z]{32})/i);

// Web server
http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  uri = url.parse(req.url);
  // Redirect to github login
  if (uri.pathname=='/login') {
    res.writeHead(301, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain', 'Location': auth_url})
    res.end('Redirecting to ' + auth_url);
  }
  // Callback url from github login
  else if (uri.pathname=='/auth') {
    var values = qs.parse(uri.query);
    // Check against CSRF attacks
    if (!state || state[1] != values.state) {
      res.writeHead(403, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
      res.end('');
    } else {
      github.auth.login(values.code, function (err, token) {
        res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
        res.end(token);
      });
    }
  } else {
    res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'})
    res.end('');
  }
}).listen(3000);

console.log('Server started on 3000');

Rate Limiting

You can also check your rate limit status by calling the following.

client.limit(function (err, left, max) {
  console.log(left); // 4999
  console.log(max);  // 5000
});

API Callback Structure

All the callbacks for the following will take first an error argument, then a data argument, like this:

ghme.info(function(err, data, headers) {
  console.log("error: " + err);
  console.log("data: " + data);
  console.log("headers:" + headers);
});

Pagination

If a function is said to be supporting pagination, then that function can be used in many ways as shown below. Results from the function are arranged in pages.

The page argument is optional and is used to specify which page of issues to retrieve. The perPage argument is also optional and is used to specify how many issues per page.

// Normal usage of function
ghrepo.issues(callback); //array of first 30 issues

// Using pagination parameters
ghrepo.issues(2, 100, callback); //array of second 100 issues
ghrepo.issues(10, callback); //array of 30 issues from page 10

// Pagination parameters can be set with query object too
ghrepo.issues({

  per_page: 100,
  state: 'closed'
}, callback); //array of second 100 issues which are closed
