Usage

API

Client

Creates a client that listens for gitter events.

Params

Example

var gitter = Gitter(process.env.GITTER_TOKEN);

.listen

Tell the client to start listening for gitter events. Setup any event listeners for the events before starting the client.

Params

  • rooms {Array}: Optional array of rooms to listen to. If empty, the client will use all the rooms the gitter user has previously joined. The gitter user is the user associated with the token used above.
  • returns {Promise}: Returns a promise that will resolve to a boolean when the client has finished setting up listeners.

Example

gitter.on('chatMessages', console.log);
gitter.on('users', console.log);
gitter.on('events', console.log);

gitter.listen();

Events

The following events will be emitted after .listen has been called and are available to be listened for:

chatMessages

The chatMessages event will be emitted when anything happens to a chat message. Check the .operation property to see what is happening to the message:

gitter.on('chatMessages', function(msg, room) {
  console.log(msg);
  switch (msg.operation) {
    case 'create':
      // new message being created
      break;
    case 'patch':
      // message was updated (e.g. someone marked it as "read")
      break;
  }
});

events

The events event will be emitted when an event in the room occurs.

gitter.on('events', function(event, room) {
  console.log(event);
});

users

The users event will be emitted when a user joins or leaves a room:

gitter.on('users', function(user, room) {
  console.log(user);
});
