As some of you may know, Dyn started Unroadmap Days in early 2011, setting aside the first Thursday and Friday of every month for developers to get to work on something new and different. It’s a great diversion from our normal projects and allows us to dive into the unknown. Sometimes, the work turns into useful projects and other times, they are simply projects that serve to inspire for the next round. Regardless, they’re awesome!
In January, I decided to play around and see if I could make it a bit easier to communicate with our DynECT Email Delivery REST API using Nodejs. Think of this as a plug-in of sorts that those users can download and add to their application to easily interface with our API.
After a few hours of work and some testing, I’m happy to present dynectemail-node, a simple little wrapper for the API. Clone/fork it on our github page or import it with npm (“npm install dynectemail”). We also have a PHP and C#.net example on our help page, available post login.
Let us know what you think. You never know what will happen next with our Unroadmap Days!
