🎮 Minimal Moltin API request library for Node

Installation

yarn add @moltin/request # npm install @moltin/request

Quickstart (implicit)

const { MoltinClient } = require('@moltin/request')
// import { MoltinClient } from '@moltin/request'

const client = new MoltinClient({
  client_id: '...'
})

client
  .get('products')
  .then(console.log)
  .catch(console.error)

Quickstart (client credentials)

⚠️ You should not use client credentials on the client-side. You will expose your client secret, read more about authentication here.

const { MoltinClient } = require('@moltin/request')
// import { MoltinClient } from '@moltin/request'

const client = new MoltinClient({
  client_id: '...',
  client_secret: '...'
})

client
  .post('brands', {
    name: 'My Special Brand',
    slug: 'my-special-brand',
    status: 'live'
  })
  .then(console.log)
  .catch(console.error)

client
  .put('brands/:id', {
    name: 'My Special Brand!'
  })
  .then(console.log)
  .catch(console.error)

client
  .delete('brands/:id')
  .then(console.log)
  .catch(console.error)

Quickstart (with storage)

To prevent unnecessary authentication requests, you will want to use a storage adapter.

Node Local Storage

const { MoltinClient } = require('@moltin/request')
const NodeStorageAdapter = require('@moltin/node-storage-adapter')

const client = new MoltinClient({
  client_id: '...',
  storage: new NodeStorageAdapter('./localStorage')
})

client
  .get('products')
  .then(console.log)
  .catch(console.error)

Quickstart (with custom fetch)

This library uses cross-fetch to make requests. If you wish to change this library, you can pass a custom fetch when instantiating a new moltin client.

const { MoltinClient } = require('@moltin/request')
const fetchEverywhere = require('fetch-everywhere')

const client = new MoltinClient({
  client_id: '...',
  fetch: fetchEverywhere
})

client
  .get('products')
  .then(console.log)
  .catch(console.error)

Kitchen sink

const { MoltinClient } = require('@moltin/request')
// import { MoltinClient } from '@moltin/request'

const client = new MoltinClient({
  client_id: '...',
  client_secret: '...',
  fetch: customFetch,
  storage: new NodeStorageAdapter('./moltin'),
  host: '...',
  version: '...',
  application: '...',
  currency: '...',
  customer_token: '...',
  headers: {
    // ...
  }
})

Custom headers per request

The Moltin API provides you the ability to send various request headers that change the way data is stored or retrieved.

By default this library will encode all data as JSON, however you can customise this by setting your own Content-Type header as an additional argument to get, post, put and delete.

This argument can be used to get products by enabled currency, language or even use for uploading files to Moltin.

Note: If you add the Content-Type custom header to post, put or delete you will need to encode data yourself.

const { MoltinClient } = require('@moltin/request')

const client = new MoltinClient({
  client_id: '...'
})

const headers = {
  'X-Moltin-Currency': 'gbp'
}

client
  .get('products', headers)
  .then(console.log)
  .catch(console.error)
