#Pitchfork Client

Travis CI

An unofficial Node.js client for Pitchfork reviews based on the Pitchfork API Client for Python.

Install

Using NPM

npm install pitchfork

Using Github

git clone git@github.com:omardelarosa/pitchfork-npm.git

You can then use it as a command-line tool or as a node module

##API

You can require pitchfork and use it inside of any Node.JS application.

var p4k = require('pitchfork')

Search

A Search constructor that extends EventEmitter. Listeners can be attached to the 'ready' event which will fire when all reviews have been fetched and parsed. For example:


var p = require('pitchfork')
var s = new p.Search('wilco')

s.on('ready', function(results){
  console.log("results", results)
})

//=> [ {Review}, {Review}, {Review}, ... ]

.results

An Array of Review objects.

.init()

Called once when Search is instantiated to fetch results. Not usually called directly

Page

A Page constructor that extends EventEmitter. This constructor takes an integer argument specifying which page of reviews you wish to fetch from /reviews/albums/:page_num. Listeners can be attached to the 'ready' event which will fire when all reviews have been fetched and parsed. For example, this would return all the most recent reviews:


var p = require('pitchfork')
var s = new p.Page(1)

s.on('ready', function(results){
  console.log("results", results)
})

//=> [ {Review}, {Review}, {Review}, ... ]

Review

The Review constructor encapsulates methods and data relating to the Pitchfork review. The Review extends EventEmitter and fires a 'ready' event when the review has been fetched and parsed.

.attributes

An Object with information about the album and its text. Sample below:

{
  "url": "/reviews/albums/9419-the-letting-go/",
  "name": "Bonnie \"Prince\" Billy - The Letting Go",
  "artist": "Bonnie \"Prince\" Billy",
  "album": "The Letting Go",
  "title": "Bonnie \"Prince\" Billy: The Letting Go | Album Reviews | Pitchfork",
  "label": "Palace / Drag City",
  "year": "2006",
  "score": 8.2,
  "cover": "http://cdn.pitchfork.com/albums/9255/homepage_large.e8a2bd20.jpg",
  "author": "Mark Richardson",
  "date": "September 18, 2006",
  "editorial": {
    "text": "...",
    "html": "..."
}

.fetch()

This method is automatically called when the Review is instantiated and returns a Promise. This generally isn't called directly.

.promise

This stores the thennable promise object generated by .fetch for attaching .then-style callbacks.

.verbose()

The full Review instance represented as JSON.

{
  "url": "/reviews/albums/9419-the-letting-go/",
  "name": "Bonnie \"Prince\" Billy - The Letting Go",
  "artist": "Bonnie \"Prince\" Billy",

  "date": "September 18, 2006",
  "editorial": {
    "html": " <p>Though Will Oldham began his musical career while in his early twenties, ... deep absorption or self-reflection so much as a kind of fond familiarity. </p> ",
    "text": " Though Will Oldham began his musical career while in his early twenties ... deep absorption or self-reflection so much as a kind of fond familiarity.  "
  }
}

.truncated()

The attributes of the Review instance with editorial.html/editorial.text condensed into the first 300 characters of of the text assigned to the key '.text'.

  "author": "Mark Richardson",
  "date": "September 18, 2006",
  "text": " Though Will Oldham began his musical career while in his early twenties, he's never exactly sounded young. From his first releases as Palace Music, Oldham's whiskey-soaked vocals and lyrical obsessions with death, sex, and religion have made \"maturity\" something of a non-issue. And yet, with his mo..."
