    Dependency

    1. Install npm module:

    cd ~/project
    npm install pantone

    2. Require and lookup color:

     
    var pantone = require('pantone')
     
    // rgb usage
     
    pantone({ r: 42, g: 112, b: 174 }, rgbCallback)
     
    function rgbCallback(err, results) {
      if (err) throw new Error(err)
      console.log(results)
    }
     
    // hex usage
     
    pantone({ hex: '#2A70AE' }, hexCallback) // you can also use `rgb` instead of `hex`
     
    function hexCallback(err, results) {
      if (err) throw new Error(err)
      console.log(results)
    }

    Proxy settings

    For all of you who are behind a proxy server we are using the process.env property from node to take the value from HTTP_PROXY or HTTPS_PROXY in order to make the call to the server. This means that you need to set those properties as environment variables (it's a good thing anyways because lots of other apps are using this property).

    Windows

    1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
    2. Click the Advanced tab \ Advanced system settings.
    3. Click Environment variables.
    4. Under System variables Click New to add a new variable name and value.
    5. Variable name: http_proxy
    6. Variable value: http://proxy-server.mycorp.com:8080 (replace the value with your details, the general syntax is: http://username:password@proxyhost:port/)
    7. Click OK and save your changes

    Now if everything went down OK you should be able to use Pantone.

    Ubuntu (various Linux distributions)

    Notice: I tested this on a VM locally and worked perfectly but might not work for you depending on various factors, so if you have more knowledge please submit a pull request, or let us know and we can update this readme file.

    If you want to use a proxy server only once in one terminal window use this command:

    export http_proxy=http://proxy-server.mycorp.com:8080

    If you want a more permanent solution:

    Put the environment variable into the global /etc/environment file:

    http_proxy=http://proxy-server.mycorp.com:8080

    Execute source /etc/environment in every shell where you want the variables to be updated:

    $ source /etc/environment

    Check that it works:

    $ echo $http_proxy
    $ http://proxy-server.mycorp.com:8080
