Lokalise APIv2 Node interface

Please note that starting from version 9 this SDK is a pure ESM module. It does not provide a CommonJS export (require) anymore. Therefore you should either convert your project to ESM, use dynamic import (find the example below), or stay on version 8.

Install the library using NPM:

npm install @lokalise/node-api

Obtain Lokalise API token in your personal profile, initialize and use the client:

import { LokaliseApi } from "@lokalise/node-api";

const lokaliseApi = new LokaliseApi({ apiKey: '<apiKey>'});
const projects = await lokaliseApi.projects().list();

process = await lokaliseApi.files().upload(project_id,
  {data: data_base64, filename: 'test1.json', lang_iso: 'en'})
process.status // => 'queued'

Alternatively, you can use tokens obtained via OAuth2 (don’t forget that these tokens have expiration dates):

import { LokaliseApiOAuth } from '@lokalise/node-api';

const lokaliseApi = new LokaliseApiOAuth({ apiKey: '<apiKeyObtainedViaOauth2>' });

const projects = lokaliseApi.projects().list();

Here’s an example using dynamic import:

(async function () {
  const LokaliseApi = await (import('@lokalise/node-api').then(m => m.LokaliseApi));
  const lokaliseApi = new LokaliseApi({ apiKey: LOKALISE_API_TOKEN});

  // use lokaliseApi here as usual...
