How to use

Inside any file of your project, import the barcodelookup package from node_modules.

To make a request, call either lookup or rateLimits and provide the necessary arguments in a key-value object format to fulfill the request.

bc.lookup({
        key: 'your api key',
        barcode: 'some barcode to lookup'
    });

bc.rateLimits({
        key: 'your api key'
    });

Functions available

lookup

lookup uses destructured parameters to accept arguments marked by the keys which barcodelookup accepts: i.e. barcode, mpn, asin, key, etc.

lookup({ barcode: barcode, mpn: mpn, asin: asin, productName: productName, category: category, 
            search: search, page: page, geo: geo, formatted: formatted, key: key })

lookup returns an object as a promise. The object will contain a status code and either a data packet of products or an error message.

{ statusCode: 200, data: { products: [ [Object] ] } }
...
{ statusCode: 403, data: 'Forbidden' }
...
{ statusCode: 404, data: 'Not Found' }

{ statusCode: 429, data: 'Too Many Requests' }
