gs-JS-API

Experimental JavaScript library for the GNU social API.

The interface is a bit weird. It might change significantly in the future.
This is mainly just an excuse for me to play with JavaScript Promises.

Note: In the current version, most methods use the JSON endpoints of the GNU social API. In the future, it is planned to switch to XML by default with the option to switch to JSON for the endpoints that support it.

Example

Most methods function similarly.
Here, we’re getting the configuration information, then the version information about the GNU social instance located at http://sn.chromic.org:

// Create the GS Object and pass it to the provided callback
gs('http://sn.chromic.org', function (instance) {
    // Inside the callback, we use .config() to fetch the configuration information.
    instance.config()
        .then(function (json) {
            // The .config() call succeeded, print the data on the console.
            console.log(json);
        }, function (err) {
            // The .config() call failed, print the error message on the console.
            console.log(err);
        });

    // On the same GS Object, we use .version() to fetch the configuration information.
    instance.version()
        .then(function (json) {
            // The .version() call succeeded, print the data on the console.
            console.log(json);
        }, function (err) {
            // The .version() call failed, print the error message on the console.
            console.log(err);
        });
});
