Import

URL to your GitLab instance should not include /api/v4 path.
Instantiate the library using a basic token created in your Gitlab Profile
// ES6 (>=node 8.0.0)
import Gitlab from 'node-gitlab-api';

// ES5
const Gitlab = require('node-gitlab-api/dist/es5').default


// Instantiating
const api = new Gitlab({
  url:   'http://example.com', // Defaults to http://gitlab.com
  token: 'abcdefghij123456'	//Can be created in your profile. 
})

// Or, use a OAuth token instead!

const api = new Gitlab({
  url:   'http://example.com', // Defaults to http://gitlab.com
  oauthToken: 'abcdefghij123456'
})

Specific Imports

Sometimes you dont want to import and instantiate the whole gitlab api, perhaps you only want access to the Projects API. To do this, one only needs to import and instantiate this specific API:
import { Projects } from 'node-gitlab-api';

const service = new Projects({
  url:   'http://example.com', // Defaults to http://gitlab.com
  token: 'abcdefghij123456' //Can be created in your profile. 
})

Bundle Imports

It can be annoying to have to import all the API's pertaining to a specific resource. For example, the Projects resource is composed of many API's, Projects, Issues, Labels, MergeRequests, etc. For convience, there is a Bundle export for importing and instantiating all these related API's at once.
import { ProjectsBundle } from 'node-gitlab-api';

const services = new ProjectsBundle({
  url:   'http://example.com', // Defaults to http://gitlab.com
  token: 'abcdefghij123456' //Can be created in your profile. 
})

services.Projects.all()
services.MergeRequests.all()
etc..

Currently there are three Bundles:
  1. ProjectsBundle which includes:
Branches
Commits
Deployments
DeployKeys
Environments
Issues
IssueNotes
IssueDiscussions
IssueAwardEmojis
Jobs
Labels
MergeRequests
MergeRequestAwardEmojis
MergeRequestNotes
Pipelines
PipelineSchedules
PipelineScheduleVariables
Projects
ProjectAccessRequests
ProjectCustomAttributes
ProjectImportExport
ProjectIssueBoards
ProjectHooks
ProjectMembers
ProjectMilestones
ProjectSnippets
ProjectSnippetNotes
ProjectSnippetDiscussions
ProjectSnippetAwardEmojis
ProtectedBranches
ProjectVariables
Repositories
RepositoryFiles
Runners
Services
Tags
Todos
Triggers

  1. UsersBundle which includes:
Users,
UserEmails,
UserImpersonationTokens,
UserKeys,
UserGPGKeys

  1. GroupsBundle which includes:
Groups
GroupAccessRequests
GroupBadges
GroupCustomAttributes
GroupIssueBoards
GroupMembers
GroupMilestones
GroupProjects
GroupVariables
Epics
EpicIssues
EpicNotes
EpicDiscussions

Examples

Once you have your library instantiated, you can utilize many of the API's functionality:
Using the await/async method
import Gitlab from 'node-gitlab-api';

const api = new Gitlab({
  url:   'http://example.com', // Defaults to http://gitlab.com
  token: 'abcdefghij123456' //Can be created in your profile. 
});

// Listing users
let users = await api.Users.all();

// Or using Promise-Then notation
api.Projects.all()
.then((projects) => {
	console.log(projects)
})

General rule about all the function parameters:
  • If its a required parameter, it is a named argument in the functions
  • If its an optional parameter, it is defined in a options object following the named arguments

ie.
import Gitlab from 'node-gitlab-api';

const api = new Gitlab({
  url:   'http://example.com', // Defaults to http://gitlab.com
  token: 'abcdefghij123456' //Can be created in your profile. 
});

api.Projects.create(projectId, {
	//options defined in the Gitlab API documentation
})

Pagination

For any .all() function on a resource, it will return all the items from Gitlab. This can be troublesome if there are many items, as the request it self can take a while to be fulfilled. As such, a maxPages option can be passed to limit the scope of the all function.
import Gitlab from 'node-gitlab-api';

const api = new Gitlab({
  url:   'http://example.com', // Defaults to http://gitlab.com
  token: 'abcdefghij123456' //Can be created in your profile. 
});

let projects = await api.Projects.all({maxPages:2});

You can also use this in conjunction to the perPage argument which would override the default of 30 per page set by Gitlab:
import Gitlab from 'node-gitlab-api';

const api = new Gitlab({
  url:   'http://example.com', // Defaults to http://gitlab.com
  token: 'abcdefghij123456' //Can be created in your profile. 
});

let projects = await api.Projects.all({maxPages:2, perPage:40});

Migrating from node-gitlab

With the sucess of this library thanks to the community, this has become the main npm package to interact with the Gitlab API. As such there will be a little bit of growing pains for those upgrading from the node-gitlab v1.8 to our newest 3.0.0 release, far too many to list here. I hope the library is written clearly enough to ease this transisition, but if there is anything that you're having trouble with please feel free to create an issue! If not myself, someone will definitly have the answer to help get you all setup up as quickly as possible.

Docs

Although there are the official docs for the API, there are some extra goodies offered by this package! After the 3.0.0 release, the next large project will be putting together proper documention for these goodies #39! Stay tuned!!

Tests

Nothing yet, but its on the TODO list :P

Contributors

This started off as a fork from node-gitlab but I ended up rewriting much of the code. Here are the original work's contributors.

Changelog

3.0.0 (2018-4-2) ------------------
  • Exporting all services seperatly ie. const { Projects } from 'node-gitlab-api'; as well as the usual default export: const Gitlab from 'node-gitlab-api'
  • Exporting bunbles which are groups of related API's. These include: ProjectsBundle, UsersBundle and GroupsBundle
  • Added events support to the Projects, and Users
  • Added full support for ProjectVariables and GroupVariables
  • Added support for Events. This is also exposed in Projects and Users under the events function
  • Fixed the missing options parameter for the ProjectMembers and GroupMemebers APIs in PR #45 thanks to Stefan Hall

  • Fixed problem with .all() functions where only the some of the results were being returned
  • Completed support for all Gitlab APIs, #49, #53

Breaking Changes between 2.2.6 and 3.0.0

  • Instantiation of the API must use the new operator consistently. See usage above.
  • All services being exported are not capitalized for clarity that they are themselves api's and not properties. ie. Gitlab.Projects vs Gitlab.projects
  • All subservices (services exposed as properties of other services) have been moved out into their own service
ProjectRepository -> Repositories, Tags, Commits, Branches and RepositoryFiles
Users -> Users, UserKeys, UserGPGKeys, UserCustomAttributes, UserVariables
  • Moved createTodo function from MergeRequests API to Todos API
  • Many services have been renamed:
ProjectProtectedBranches -> ProtectedBranches
ProjectDeployKeys -> DeployKeys
ProjectEnvironments -> Enviroments
ProjectJobs -> Jobs
ProjectLabels -> Labels
ProjectPipelines -> Pipelines
ProjectRepository -> Repositories
ProjectServices -> Services
ProjectTriggers -> Triggers

  • Some services were merged:
Issues = ProjectIssues + Issues.  ProjectId is optional for all()
MergeRequests = ProjectMergeRequests + MergeRequests + MergeRequestsChanges + MergeRequestsCommits + MergeRequestVersions. ProjectId is optional for all()
Runners = ProjectRunners + Runners. ProjectId is optional for all()

Development

To get this running locally rather than from your node_modules folder:
$ git clone https://github.com/jdalrymple/node-gitlab-api.git
$ cd node-gitlab-api
$ npm install
$ npm build

And then inside whatever project you are using node-gitlab-api in you change your references to use that repo. In your package.json of that upstream project change:
"dependencies": {
  ...
  "node-gitlab-api": "2.1.0"
  ...
}

to this
"dependencies": {
  ...
  "node-gitlab-api": "<path-to-your-clone>"
  ...
}
