Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including fleece with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

var fleece = require("fleece")

fleece v0.3.5

Fetch URLs and describe them in one line.

Fleece

Node.js/io.js module. Fetch and describe URLs (Tweets, GitHub repos, etc). Useful for IRC bots.

npm version

Build Status

Floobits Status

Install

Add fleece to your package.json or npm install fleece.

Use

The main function you'll want to use is describe_url(). Give it a URL and it will give you a one-line description:

let fleece = require("fleece");
fleece.describe_url("https://github.com/Floobits/floobits-sublime", function (err, result) {
  if (err) {
    console.error("Error fetching URL:", err);
    return;
  }
  if (!result) {
    // No outright error, but empty <title>, URL is an image, etc
    console.log("No result");
    return;
  }
  console.log(result);
});

Assuming no network errors, the output should be:

floobits-sublime (11 stars 213 forks) Floobits real-time collaboration plugin for Sublime Text 2 and 3

This works for more than just GitHub URLs. Fleece also supports Twitter and Hacker News:

describe_url("https://twitter.com/SpaceX/status/556131313905070081");
