Unofficial airbnb.com REST API wrapper for node.js


Coverage Status


Hi there! 👋 This is a javascript library for interacting with airbnb's API.
Disclaimer: this library is not associated with airbnb and should only be used for educational reasons. It is an interface for a private API used by airbnb's mobile applications.
This is a pre 1.0 library. Please request endpoints and functionality as repo issues. Collaborators wanted!

Essential Info

  • All functions return promises.
  • The returned data format is pre-parsed JSON, i.e. a javascript object. Multiple records will be returned as an array.
  • The auth system is a simple crypto token. For the uninitiated, this is like a username and password in one. If you're only using a single account, you can supply a token with .setDefaultToken(), otherwise, you will have to supply a token with every function call.
  • Yeah, I know, airlock is a massive pain in the posterior.
  • Error reporting and data validation is spotty at this stage!
  • This library only has one dependency - request-promise.
