JavaScript Reactor SDK

A Library for accessing the Adobe Experience Platform Launch API.

This API is fairly low-level. The Reactor methods are one-to-one with the RESTful API endpoints, and they provide very little help in constructing your payloads. This is intended to meet the expectations of JavaScript developers, but we welcome your feedback.

Installation

Using npm

You can use the Reactor SDK from npm with a bundler like Webpack, Rollup, or Parcel. If you use npm for client package management, you can install the SDK with:

npm install @adobe/reactor-sdk --save

Using a CDN

If you'd prefer not to use npm to manage your client packages, reactor-sdk also provides a UMD distribution in a dist folder which is hosted on a CDN:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/@adobe/reactor-sdk/dist/reactor-sdk.min.js"></script>

The Reactor constructor will be installed as window.Reactor, so typical usage would go something like this:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/@adobe/reactor-sdk/dist/reactor-sdk.min.js"></script>
<script>
  const tok = '<see instructions below for getting your access token>';
  const url = 'https://reactor.adobe.io';
  const reactor = new window.Reactor(tok, { reactorUrl: url });
  const acme = await reactor.getCompany('CO0123456789012345678901');
  ...
</script>

Usage

The example below is a nodejs script that lists the ID's and names of all your Company's properties.

Put this text in a file named list-properties.js:

#!/usr/bin/env node
const Reactor = require('@adobe/reactor-sdk').default;

(async function() {

  // Build a Reactor object with API methods
  async function buildReactor() {
    const accessToken = process.env['ACCESS_TOKEN'];
    const reactorUrl = 'https://reactor.adobe.io';
    return await new Reactor(accessToken, { reactorUrl: reactorUrl });
  }

  const reactor = await buildReactor();
  // Example API call: list Companies for the authenticated organization
  const companyList = await reactor.listCompanies();
  for (var company of companyList.data) {
    console.log("%j %j", company.id, company.attributes.name);
    // Example API call: list Properties for the identified Company
    const list = await reactor.listPropertiesForCompany(company.id);
    for (var property of list.data) {
      console.log('  %j %j', property.id, property.attributes.name);
    }
  }
})().then(
  function(result) { console.log('success') },
  function(err) { console.log(err) }
);

Run it...

export ACCESS_TOKEN=... # see instructions below
chmod u+x ./list-properties.js
./list-properties.js

...and you should get output similar to:

"COb711272b544e8359eab4492484893f77" "Fredigar and Bagginses"
  "PR090c7b576f892bf7a7f5e783d0e9ab75" "Shire Real Estate Holdings, LLC"
  "PR399e5b7dbcfc83db37051b43f5ac4d3b" "Mathom Recyclers, Ltd."
success

A browser implementation of this functionality would differ in two ways:

  1. it would use the pre-initialized window.Reactor rather than const Reactor = require('@adobe/reactor-sdk')
  2. providing your access token needs a different approach, since process.env is not available in browsers. Note: you don't want to inline the text of your access token, unless you are sure no adversary will have access to your page.

The SDK and the API

The Adobe Experience Platform Launch API is a RESTful {json:api}-compliant service.

Each Launch endpoint has a corresponding function in this library. For example, the "Fetch a Profile" endpoint is accessed via the getProfile() SDK function.

Since the correspondence between API endpoints and SDK functions is one-to-one, the Launch API documentation is the primary source of information.

(In addition to the live API documentation, the code that builds that documentation is available under open source, at reactor-developer-docs. For example, the source code of the "Fetch a Profile" documentation is at profiles/fetch.md.)

Every SDK function has an integration test that demonstrates its correctness. (Well, correct for at least one use). These tests also provide you working examples for every library function. [This isn't quite true yet. We're almost there, but a few remain to be implemented.]

For a complete and self-contained example program, see examples.test.js, which is included in the integration tests. It's a JavaScript implementation of the Reactor Postman query set.

Developer Setup

If you want to contribute to development of this library,

$ git clone git@github.com:adobe/reactor-sdk-javascript.git
$ cd reactor-sdk-javascript
$ npm clean-install           # install dependencies and build Reactor SDK library

The clean install generates three versions of the library:

  1. ./lib/node/*.js, intended for use by nodejs projects
  2. ./lib/browser/*.js, intended for use by bundlers in browser projects
  3. ./dist/reactor.min.js, intended for loading directly into an HTML page (i.e., for non-bundled browser use)

With the SDK built, you can run its nodejs unit tests:

$ npm link "$(pwd)"           # make this SDK available to tests
$ npm run unit-tests          # run the tests in test/unit/**

The integration tests need a current access token, and a provisioned Company. You are expected to provide them to the tests via the environment variables ACCESS_TOKEN and COMPANY_ID. Instructions for getting appropriate values are given below. See Your Company ID and Your Access Token.

The in-browser integration tests require a local static-file web server, because loading their HTML using a file:// URL is not effective: the browser rejects all the resulting Reactor requests because they violate CORS restrictions. The necessary bare-bones web server is provided with this project, as scripts/static-server.js.

Once you've collected the necessary values for your environment variables, you can run the integration tests:

$ export ACCESS_TOKEN="your_reactor_access_token"
$ export COMPANY_ID="your_reactor_test_company_id" # "CO" followed by 32 hex digits
$ NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED=0 scripts/static-server.js --dir ./tmp.tests/

Switch to another terminal window, since you want that server to keep running.

$ npm run integration-tests   # run the tests in test/integration/**
$ # Currently known to pass in MacOS Chrome Version 72.0.3626.121.

[Update] As of 20 August 2019, current versions of Google Chrome still won't allow the files to be loaded, even with the static server. Apparently, localhost:5000 and localhost:9010 are too different, and trigger CORS blocking. On MacOS, I've been able to get the tests to work by shutting down Chrome and relaunching with:

open -a "Google Chrome" ./tmp.tests/integration-bundled-sdk/index.html \
     --args --disable-web-security --user-data-dir="/tmp/chrome"

While developing the Reactor SDK, these are handy for auto-building when you change the source code:

# re-run {lint, prettier, build} when src/**/*.js changes
$ npm run src-watch

# re-run {lint, prettier, build, and test} when {dist,test/unit}/**/*.js changes
$ npm run unit-watch

# re-run {lint, prettier, build, and test} when {dist,test/integration}/**/*.js changes
$ npm run integration-watch

# re-run {lint, prettier, build, and test} when {src,test}/**/*.js changes
$ npm run all-watch

# Periodically, you'll want to remove the Properties created during integration tests
$ script/delete-test-properties

Determining Your Personal Information

Your Company ID

  • Log in to https://launch.adobe.com/companies
  • While looking at your Properties page, the address bar will show a URL like https://launch.adobe.com/companies/CO81f8cb0aca3a4ab8927ee1798c0d4f8a/properties.
  • Your Company ID is the 'CO' followed by 32 hexadecimal digits (i.e., from "CO" up to the following slash). Copy that company ID to an environment variable:
    • $ export COMPANY_ID=CO81f8cb0aca3a4ab8927ee1798c0d4f8a

Your Access Token

  • Using Google Chrome, log in to https://launch.adobe.com/companies
  • Open the developer console
  • Execute copy(userData.imsAccessToken)
  • The access token is now in your system clipboard. Paste it into an environment variable definition:
    • $ export ACCESS_TOKEN='<paste>'

Future Work

  • Implement integration tests for the handful of functions not yet covered.
  • Include a section here on library function naming conventions.
  • Find or implement a JavaScript library for handling JWT token generation. The current mechanism requires you to generate an access token yourself. Such tokens time out after while, forcing you to generate a new one.
  • Describe how query parameters are passed in this SDK.
