Readme

This does not use the official api, it is a library for interfacing with the actual app.

How is this different from the official api? This allows you to do everything the app does, it's not limited.

If you are looking for the official api, check out uber's api.

Uber.js

A semi-completed node library of the Uber Api

Install


  • npm install uber.js --save

First steps


  • Get token.
    • Either use the included cli --> $ node node_modules/uber.js/bin/getToken.js
    • Or snoop it from https://m.uber.com/cn
    • make note of your token
  • Get location
    • Either use the included cli --> $ node node_modules/uber.js/bin/getCoordinates.js
    • Or use an online geolocation
    • take note of lat and long

Use

with a fixed location

var UberClient = require('uber.js');

// Must init with token (str) and location (obj)
var client = new UberClient(token, {longitude: '', latitude: ''});


// Will return list of cars near location
client.pingClient(function(err, cars) {
    if (err) console.log(err);
    else {
        console.log(cars);
    }
});


/* Schedule a pickup at a certain location.
 * caution on this one
 */
var pickupLocation = {
    longitude: 38.897096,
    latitude: -77.036545
}
client.pickup(pickupLocation, function(err, resp) {
    if(err) console.log(err)
    else {
        console.log(resp);
    }
});


// Cancel a pickup at a certain location.
client.cancel(function(err, resp) {
    if (err) console.log(err);
    else {
        console.log(resp);
    }
});

Use

with variable location


app.post('/scheduleUber', function(req, res) {
  var token = req.body.token;
  var location = {
    longitude: req.body.longitude,
    latitude: req.body.latitude
  };

  var client = new Uber(token, location);

  client.pickup(location, function(err, response) {
    if (err) res.send(err);
    else {
      res.send('Your uber is scheduled and shall arrive shortly!');
    }
  });
});
