Installation

npm i searchitunes

Interface

The module exports only one function. Arguments must be wrapped in an object. It returns a Promise.

Configuration

The parameters below can be included along with the normal API params.

paramtypedefaultdescription
[timeout]number5000Wait time out in ms
[userAgent]stringsearchitunes.jsUser-Agent header
[throwEmpty]booltrueThrow no results instead of returning []
...mixedAPI parameters
itunes( {
  timeout: 8000,
  entity:  'software',
  term:    'github',
} )

Search API

For searching in the iTunes databases you simply include the search params in your request. The function will resolve with an object.

Lookup by ID

When you wish to retrieve one specific item by its ID, include one of the ID params to use the Lookup API. The result data will be only the object with the item's details.

ID params
  • amgAlbumId
  • amgArtistId
  • amgVideoId
  • id
  • isbn
  • upc
  • trackId

When you lookup a trackId from a search response it will be automatically converted to the id parameter instead. Otherwise the API won't understand it.

searchitunes( { id: 123456 } )
  .then( console.log )
  .catch( console.error )
;
Bulk lookup

To request multiple objects at once you set one of the ID params above to an array with the item ID's. This will always return an array.

searchitunes( { id: [ 123, 789 ] } )
  .then( arr => arr.forEach( processItems )
  .catch( console.error )
;

Errors

API errors are handled and thrown, prefixed with API:

When nothing is found it will throw with no results message. You can prevent this behavior by setting throwEmpty to false to return an empty array.

searchitunes( {
  throwEmpty: false,
  entity: 'software',
  term: 'github',
} )
  .then( console.log )
  .catch( console.error )
;
