foursquare-streams

SYNOPSIS

A simple streaming abstraction for foursquare's REST APIs

DESCRIPTION

If you for some reason want to collect the garbage that is foursquare's data, but you want to do it with streams, here's a module for it. Zing!

USAGE

var fsconn = {
  clientId: '2DSWUN',
  clientSecret: 'YCSISJ'
}

var foursquare = require('foursquare-streams').createClient(fsconn)

var opts = {
  'near': 'NYC',
  'limit': 50,
}

foursquare.getVenues(opts).pipe(...) // pipe that stream, dog!

INSTALL

$ npm install foursquare-streams
var querystring = require('querystring')
var hyperquest = require('hyperquest')
var JSONStream = require('JSONStream')
var through = require('through')
var mapStream = require('map-stream')
exports.createClient = function (opts) {
if (!opts.clientId || !opts.clientSecret) {
throw new Error('options object requires `clientId` and `clientSecret` members.')
}
var clientId = opts.clientId
var clientSecret = opts.clientSecret
var today = new Date()
var month = today.getMonth() + 1
if (month < 10) {
month = '0' + month
}
var day = today.getDate()
if (day < 10) {
day = '0' + day
}
var date = today.getFullYear() + '' + month + '' + day
var credentials = {
'v': date,
'client_id': clientId,
'client_secret': clientSecret
}
var client = {}
client.getVenues = function getVenues(params) {
var url = [
'https://api.foursquare.com/v2/venues/search?',
querystring.stringify(params) + '&',
querystring.stringify(credentials)
].join('')
return hyperquest(url)
.pipe(JSONStream.parse('response.venues.*'))
.pipe(mapStream(function (venueRef, callback) {
var that = this
client.getVenue({
venueId: venueRef.id
}).pipe(through(function(venue) {
callback(null, venue)
}))
}))
}
client.exploreVenues = function exploreVenues(params, callback) {
var url = [
'https://api.foursquare.com/v2/venues/explore?',
querystring.stringify(params) + '&',
querystring.stringify(credentials)
].join('')
return hyperquest(url).pipe(JSONStream.parse())
}
client.getVenue = function getVenue(params, callback) {
var url = [
'https://api.foursquare.com/v2/venues/',
params.venueId + '?',
querystring.stringify(credentials)
].join('')
return hyperquest(url).pipe(JSONStream.parse())
}
return client
