Node SDK for ISBNDB

Features

Install

npm install isbndbjs

Usage

First of all you will have to initialize the SDK using the API Key, which can be obtained after you create an account and then go to access keys manager.

var ISBNDB = require("isbndb")
ISBNDB.initialize("YOUR_API_KEY_HERE")

Books API

If you know the ISBN number of a particular book, you can get the book directly, as illustrated

ISBNDB.Books.get("9780743294065", function(responseBody){
  // .... successful response callback
}, function(errorResponse){
  // .... error callback
})

// .... Or, you could use the promise implementation in the following manner. Promise based examples will be used from here on

ISBNDB.Books.get("9780743294065")
.then(function(bookData){
  // .... Play with book data here
}, function(errorObject){
  // .... Handle errors here
})

If you desire to search books written by Shakespeare, it can be done in the following manner.

ISBNDB.Books.search({query: "William Shakespeare", type: "author_name"})
.then(function(books){
  // .... A list of books published by William Shakespeare
}, function(errorObject){
  // .... Handle errors here
})

Authors API

If you know the author_id for any author, you can directly get the author data as below:

ISBNDB.Author.get("richards_rowland")
.then(function(authorData){
  // Play with author data
}, function(errorObject){
  // .... Handle errors here
})

You can also search for authors as shown below:

ISBNDB.Author.search("william")
.then(function(authors){
  // An array of authors
}, function(errorObject){
  // .... Handle errors here
})
