REST Library

Mojito has a library to make it easier to make a REST calls to Web services from your model. For implementation details, see Class Y.mojito.lib.REST in the Mojito API documentation.

Including Library

To use the REST library, include the string ‘mojito-rest-lib’ in the requires array, which instructs YUI to load the library. Once the library is loaded, you can use Y.mojito.lib.REST to make REST calls..

YUI.add('MyModel', function(Y, NAME) {
  ...
  // Make the REST call.
  Y.mojito.lib.REST.GET("http://example.com");
    ...
  // Ask YUI to load the library w/ 'mojito-rest-lib'.
}, '0.0.1', {requires: ['mojito', 'mojito-rest-lib']});

Example

In the model for the recipeSearch mojit below, the REST library is used to make a GET call to the Recipe Puppy API.

YUI.add('ProductSearchModel', function(Y, NAME) {
   Y.namespace('mojito.models')[NAME] = {
    recipeSearch: function(count, cb) {
      var url = 'http://www.recipepuppy.com/api/';
      var params = {
        i:"onions,garlic",
        q:"omelet",
        p:1
      };
      var config = {
        timeout: 5000,
        headers: {
          'Cache-Control': 'max-age=0'
        }
      };
      Y.mojito.lib.REST.GET(url, params, config, function(err, response) {
        if (err) {
          return cb(err);
        }
        cb(null, response);
      });
    }
  };
}, '0.0.1', {requires: ['mojito', 'mojito-rest-lib']});
