JavaScript API Reference

This section describes Bixby's JavaScript API available for implementing actions.

The API is organized into a set of Node.js-style modules. To use the functions in a module, use the require statement to import them:

var http = require('http');
Caution

Earlier versions of the Bixby JavaScript API allowed you to call functions without explicitly importing them via require. This implicit import is being deprecated, and warnings will be emitted if you do not explicitly require modules.
