Unofficial Notion.so API Wrapper (WIP)

npm npm bundle size

This repository contains an unofficial port of the Notion API to Node.js. Important: It only works in the backend using Node.js and not in a client-side environment.

IMPORTANT: You need a token to use the Notion API. You can obtain one by reading your local cookie. You can find instructions for that below.

Documentation

Installation

You can either use npm or yarn to install it:

npm i --save notion-api-js
yarn add notion-api-js

Usage

Creating an instance

To create an instance, simply pass an object with the token you read from the cookie:

// ES Modules syntax
import Notion from "notion-api-js";

// require syntax
const Notion = require("notion-api-js").default;

const notion = new Notion({
  token: "YOUR_TOKEN_V2"
});

You can also provide options for the HTML parsing:

const notion = new Notion({
  token: "YOUR_TOKEN_V2",
  options: {
    colors: {
      orange: 'CSS COLOR HERE'
    },
    pageUrl: 'ABSOLUTE PAGE URL (e.g. /posts/'),
  }
});

Obtaining Credentials

Right now there is no official way of accessing the Notion API but there is a little work-around to get your credentials.

Prerequisites

You need to have an account on Notion.so and need to be logged in.

Getting your credentials

Most of the modern web browsers support inspecting cookies visually using the browser's devtools. You can read how to do it in your browser here:

After you found the Notion.so cookie, look for an entry called token_v2. It is the necessary credential for the Notion instance. Simply copy it into your code when you create the instance.

Instance Options

The options are optionally passed to the instance as a parameter. Those options contain information on how the HTML will be parsed and returned using the instance methods.

Colors (Object)

Contains definitions for the colors. If this option is omitted the default HTML colors like orange, pink and blue are used. You can change this behavior by passing an object containing color definitions. Example:

options: {
    colors: {
      red: 'tomato',
      blue: 'rgb(100, 149, 237)',
      purple: '#9933cc',
    }
}

Possible colors are:

  • red
  • brown
  • orange
  • yellow
  • teal
  • blue
  • purple
  • pink

PageUrl (String)

The PageUrl is the string passed to the <a> tag and is used to build the href of it. The id is inserted after the passed string. By default it looks like this /page?id=, which results in <a href="/page?id=SOME_ID">Hello World</a>

Instance Methods

getPages()

Gets all pages of the user by the userId passed to the Notion instance. All pages are parsed to HTML.

Example

notion.getPages().then(pages => {
  // Your Code here
});

getPageById(pageId)

Gets a Notion page by the pageId and returns the parsed HTML.

Parameters:

Parameter Type Opt/Required
pageId string Required

Example

notion.getPageById("pageId").then(page => {
  // Your code here
});

getPagesByIndexId(pageId)

Gets a Notion page by the given pageId and all subpages of that page. Useful if you want to use a homepage.

Parameters:

Parameter Type Opt/Required
pageId string Required

Example

notion.getPagesByIndexId("pageId").then(page => {
  // Your code here
});

getAllHTML() [WIP]

Gets the HTML for all pages.

notion.getAllHTML().then(html => {
  // Your Ccode here
});

Disclaimer

It's really WIP right now but I would highly appreciate if you would like to contribute to the project. Just fork this repository and create a PR 😄
