    Getting Started

    Getting an Artifact from the Index

    To get an Artifact back from the Index, we will first need to spawn a new Index object. This Index object is what we will interact with in order to get Artifacts back from the Index. After you have created a new Index you can lookup a specific Artifact using the .getArtifact(artifact_id) method. The getArtifact method returns a Promise that will resolve to the requested Artifact, or will reject if there was an error.

    import { Index } from 'oip-index'
     
    var index = new Index()
     
    index.getArtifact("513691").then((artifact) => {
        console.log(artifact.getTitle())
    })

    Use a Custom OIPd Server

    Using a custom OIPd server as your source for Artifacts is simple, yet powerful. To hookup to an OIPd server, simply pass the API url into the Index object when you create it. All requests made to the index object it creates will use the OIPd server you specified as its source of truth.

    import { Index } from 'oip-index'
     
    var index = new Index("https://my-oipd-url.com/api")

    Create a new Artifact

    Creating a new Artifact allows you to build your own Artifact that can then be handed off to oip-account for publishing to the Index. To create a new Artifact, we first need to import the Artifact class from oip-index. After we have imported the class, we can then create a new Artifact.

    import { Artifact } from 'oip-index'
     
    var myArtifact = new Artifact();

    After we have created our new Artifact, we can then start setting values on it, as well as adding files. In this example, I am just going to set the Title, and Description.

    myArtifact.setTitle("My Great Title")
    myArtifact.setDescription("The description for the Artifact we are creating")
