nodejs-searchitunes

Light Node.js module to quickly search Apple's iTunes Store for music and apps.

Basically this performs a GET request to the iTunes API and validates the returned data to make sure the process doesn't die by remote failures.

Installation

Installation and connecting is simple:

From NPM

npm install searchitunes
var itunes = require('searchitunes')

From Github

git clone https://github.com/fvdm/nodejs-searchitunes
var itunes = require('./nodejs-searchitunes')

Usage

( paramsObject, callback )

  • paramsObject -- object with search parameters.
  • callback -- function that receives results.

You can find all the parameters in the API documentation: http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/resources/documentation/itunes-store-web-service-search-api.html

callback

Success: callbackFunction ( resultObject )

Faillure: callbackFunction ( result, errorObject )

Result is always the response body, in case of JSON the parsed object. In case of faillure errorObject is provided with reason and headers.
