Javascript Question

How to use traccar api to get devices

i have done research on google and many other page, that i can extract the data via traccar api here so i do next research how to use it, and finally find this answer here by mvalverde. At that post, he write some code, like this:

// find All devices - GET request
var result = HTTP.call(
"GET",
'http://your_domain:8082/api/devices/',
{
auth: 'email@xyz.com:password' ,
params: {
}
}
);

// add device
var name = 'name your device';
var uniqueId = '122323223232'; // usually this is the device imei
var result = HTTP.post(
'http://your_domain:8082/api/devices/',
{
auth: 'email@xyz.com:password' ,
data:{
groupId:null,
id: null,
lastUpdate:null,
status:'',
name:name,
uniqueId:uniqueId
}
}
);


he said it is javascript, so i try implement in javascript way:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>try traccar api</title>
</head>
<body>
<script type="text/javascript">
var result = HTTP.call(
"GET",
'http://103.23.20.176:8082/api/devices/',
{
auth: 'email:password' ,
params: {
}
}
);
console.log(result);
</script>
</body>
</html>


but i get error in console. i suspect that it is not a pure javascript, if it so can u guide me to write the implementation using javascript. so anyone can you help me solve this problem.

ps : i am still rookie in js field

== UPDATE ==

thanks to anton tananaev, i solve this problem, like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>try traccar api</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="js/jquery-2.2.2.min.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$.ajax({
type: 'get',
url: 'http://103.23.20.176:8082/api/devices/',
headers: {
"Authorization": "Basic " + btoa("admin:admin")
},
success: function (response) {
console.log(response);
}
});
</script>
</body>
</html>


and 1 question again, how to post data? i try like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>try traccar api</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="js/jquery-2.2.2.min.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var name = "Bus 2";
var uid = "1212321233";
$.ajax({
type: 'post',
url: 'http://103.23.20.176:8082/api/devices/',
headers: {
"Authorization": "Basic " + btoa("email:pass")
},
data:{
id:null,
name:name,
uniqueId:uid,
groupId:null,
status:'',
lastUpdate:null
},
success: function (response) {
console.log(response);
}
});
</script>
</body>
</html>


but i get status code 415 unsupported media type. what i miss in my code?

Answer

The HTTP object is not defined. You can use jQuery. Add the library first:

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.1.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

Then do an API call. Something like this:

$.ajax({
    type: 'get',
    url: 'http://103.23.20.176:8082/api/devices/',
    headers: {
        "Authorization": "Basic " + btoa(USERNAME + ":" + PASSWORD)
    },
    success: function (response) {
        console.log(response);
    }
});

To post data you can send a post request like this:

var data = {
    name: 'Test',
    ...
}

$.ajax({
    type: 'post',
    data: JSON.stringify(data),
    contentType: 'application/json',
    ...
});
