Quick start - OAuth2

  1. Create a new OAuth2 object with some parameters (host is optional, default is ''):

     var oa = new OAuth2(client_id, client_secret, redirectUri, host);
     e.g.: var oa = new OAuth2('1234', 'qwertasdfgzxcv', 'http://localhost:8888/callback');
  2. Get the OAuth Request Token URL and call it (parameters are optional, i.e. shop):

     var authUrl = oa.getAuthorizeUrl(params);
     e.g.: var authUrl = oa.getAuthorizeUrl({ 'shop': 'my-shop' });
  3. Your App should have a callback servlet (i.e. http://localhost:8888/callback) where you get the notification with the code as a query parameter. Then you can *request an AccessToken:*

     oa.getAccessToken(code, {
         'shop': 'my-shop',
         'grant_type': 'authorization_code',
     }, function(error, response, body) {
         // The body response contains some parameters among which you will 
         // find the `access_token` and the `refresh_token`

Quick start - REST

  1. Create a new Rest object with the target url and the parameters needed for the authentication (mac_key and access_token):

     var target = "<shop-handle>/rest/<resource>";    
     var rest = new Rest(target, {
         "mac_key": "abcd",
         "access_token": "abcd"
  2. Use one of the four verbs CRUD to access a resource:

     rest.GET(function(error, response, body){
         // Handle callback
  3. You can also request the Authorization Header with:

     var authHeader = rest.getAuthHeader();
