EXP Javascript SDK
Last updated a year ago by jrd261 .
MIT · Original npm · Tarball · package.json
$ cnpm install exp-sdk 
SYNC missed versions from official npm registry.

Installation

Bower

The easiest way to get the SDK for standalone browser usage is using bower.

bower install exp-sdk

Then include the sdk in a script tag from the bower_components directory. You can then access the sdk as the window bound global EXP.

<script src="bower_components/exp-sdk/exp-sdk.min.js"></script>
<script>// I have access to EXP!</script>

NPM

To use the EXP SDK with NodeJS, install using npm:

npm install exp-sdk

and require in the exp module.

const EXP = require('exp-sdk');

Runtime

Starting the SDK

EXP.start(options)

Starts and returns an sdk instance. Can be called multiple times to start multiple independent instances of the sdk. The sdk can be started using user, device, or consumer app credentials, or directly with an authentication payload. options is an object that supports the following properties:

  • username The username used to log in to EXP. Required user credential.
  • password The password of the user. Required user credential.
  • organization The organization of the user. Required user credential.
  • uuid The uuid of the device or consumer app. Required consumer app credential and required device credential unless allowPairing is true.
  • secret The device secret. Required device credential unless allowPairing is true.
  • apiKey The consumer app api key. Required consumer app credential.
  • allowPairing Whether or not to allow authentication to fallback to pairing mode. If true, invalid or missing device credentials will start the sdk in pairing mode. Defaults to false.
  • host The api host to authenticate with. Defaults to https://api.goexp.io.
  • enableNetwork Whether or not to establish a socket connection with the network for real time communication. If false you will not be able to listen for broadcasts. Defaults to true.
  • auth A valid authentication payload. Can be specified with credentials. SDK will fallback to credentials if auth payload fails.
# Authenticating as a user.
exp = EXP.start({ username: 'joe@scala.com', password: 'joeIsAwes0me', organization: 'joeworld' })

# Authenticating as a device.
exp = EXP.start({ uuid: '[uuid]', secret: '[secret]' });

# Authenticating as a consumer app.
exp = EXP.start({ uuid: '[uuid]', apiKey: '[api-key]' });

# Authenticating with previous auth payload.
exp = EXP.start({ uuid: '[uuid]', apiKey: '[api-key]', auth: auth });

Stopping the SDK

EXP.stop()

Stops all running instance of the sdk, cancels all listeners and closes socket connections.

exp1 = EXP.start(options1)
exp2 = EXP.start(options2)

EXP.stop()
exp1.createDevice()  // Error

New instance can still be started by calling EXP.start().

exp.stop()

Stops the the SDK instance and clears all event listeners. Sdk instance cannot be restarted and any invokation on the instance will result in an Error being thrown.

Authentication

exp.getAuth()

Resolves to the current authentication payload. The authentication payload may be updated by performing this request.

exp.auth

Returns the current authentication payload. Will be null if not yet authenticated.

exp.on('update',callback)

Callback is called when authentication payload is updated. Returns a listener.

exp.on('error',callback)

Register a callback for when the sdk instance encounters a critical error and cannot continue. The callback is called with the error as the first argument. This is generally due to authentication failure. Returns a listener.

const exp = EXP.start(options)
exp.on('error', error => console.error('Uhoh, the sdk instance died.', error));

Listeners

listener.cancel()

Cancels the registered callback. This operation cannot be undone.

Real Time Communication

Status

exp.on('offline',callback)

Callback is called when connection to EXP is lost. Returns a listener.

exp.on('online',callback)

Callback is called when connection to EXP is established. Returns a listener.

exp.isConnected

Whether or not you are connected to EXP.

Channels

exp.getChannel(name, options)

Returns a channel with the given name and options. Options is a javascript object with two flags: consumer and system. Consumer devices can only listen and broadcast on consumer channels. System channels are listen only and can receive broadcasts about system events.

consumerChannel = exp.getChannel('my-consumer-channel', { consumer: true })
channel = exp.getChannel('my-channel');

channel.broadcast(name, payload, timeout)

Sends a broadcast with given name and payload on the channel. Waits for responses for timeout milliseconds and resolves with an array of responses.

channel.broadcast('hi!', { test: 'nice to meet you!' }).then(responses => {
  responses.forEach(response => console.log(response));
});

channel.listen(name, callback)

Registers a listener callback for events on the channel with the given name. Resolves to a listener when the callback is registered and the connection has subscribed to the channel.

The callback is called with the broadcast payload as the first argument and a respond method as the second argument. Call the respond method to send a response back to the broadcaster.

channel = exp.getChannel('my-channel')
channel.listen('hi!', (payload, respond) => {
  if (payload && payload.text === 'hi') respond({ text: 'hi to you too!' });
});

channel.listen(callback)

Registers a listener callback for ALL events on the channel. Resolves to a listener when the callback is registered and the connection has subscribed to the channel.

The callback is called with the raw message object as the first argument (with name and payload properties) and a respond method as the second argument. Call the respond method to send a response back to the broadcaster.

channel = exp.getChannel('my-channel')
channel.listen('myEvent', (payload, respond) => {
  if (payload && payload.text === 'hi') respond({ text: 'hi to you too!' });
});

channel.fling(payload)

Fling an app launch payload on the channel.

channel.fling({ appTemplate: { uuid: '[uuid]' } });

channel.identify()

Requests that devices listening for this event on this channel visually identify themselves. Implementation is device specific; this is simply a convience method.

Running the SDK Unit Tests

Requirements The tests require Mocha

npm install -g Mocha

The tests project must be compiled with Babel

npm install -g babel-cli
npm install -g babel-core

Preparing the Environment
The SDK requires access to a test API, Network, and Gateway. The databases the API depends on will have to be seeded with a user, role, organization, devices, and content. Running the API with NODE_ENV=test will cause the API to seed these things into the databases.

Configuring The settings for the test are located in test/index.js. The username, password, api-key, test-secret, and organization will have to match those used in the API test configuration.
The host should be set to the address of the Gateway.

Running

npm run build
npm test
