GIT Call

Use and manage program code from all over the world on any programming language with GIT Call node.

GIT Call node provides opportunity to connect and execute code from Git repositories as a part of business process.

Supporting programming language: JavaScript.

GIT Call node consists of 2 parts:

  1. Connecting programming code from GIT

  2. Executing connected code from GIT

Connecting programming code from GIT

Example of connecting the MomentJS library from GitHub for working with dates.

Please follow the link to the library and read the file It contains a description of the logic of the library and examples of using.

Let’s create process and add GIT Call node.

Push a button "+ Add Dependency".

Copy link to MomentJS Library, as shown below:

  1. Push the button Clone or download
  2. Copy link to the library

Fill in the Dependency fields:

  1. paste the copied url into Repo URL field

  2. specify Branch / Tag / Commit

By default - master. If you need to connect a specific version of code - you need to specify a tag (for example - v2.24.0). Please find out more info about branch here.

  1. Build command - command to build the library.

After adding a repository to the process, it has to be assembled. To do this, click button Build. Until the end of the library building process, the error "Dependency not Build" will be displayed in your process.

The console displays a message about the completion of the dependency setup. Message about the about the correct dependency setup will be displayed in the console.

Build command features

In a file package.json we need to examine dependencies and scripts, which are used in this library. MomentJS has no specific build command, so leave this field empty. More info about the structure of package.json you can find here.

In order to connect module, you need to use function require("name of repository").

By default code invokes file package.json, which is located in library root folder.

The starting point will be described in the package.json file with the key main. If it is empty, by default the code will call the index.js file.

In this example, the main object is described and no additional commands should be used to build it.

If there is no index.js file, then dependencies may need to be pre-built. To do this, examine the objects dependencies, devDependencies, scripts.

In the object scripts, only test scripts are described that do not affect the build.

Object devDependencies is described the list of dependencies which are used by this library.

In order to collect the dependencies that are necessary for the library to work correctly, enter the yarn command in the Build command field.

If the object scripts has a build command, then you need to add it to the Build command with “&&”.

For example: yarn && yarn build.

Executing connected code from GIT

Execution of the connected code in the code editor based on Node.js (11.2.0).

Now let's try to use / run the connected library as a part of our process. To do this, enter the code to work with the library functions as shown below:

const moment = require("moment");

this variable describes initialization of MomentJS library to variable

data.datetime = moment().format();

call a function from the library

More information about working with MomentJS and data format could be found here.

Please note that when you call the require() function, you must specify the name of the repository you work with and it must match the name from the link to the repository:

Let’s deploy process and test how it works.

Go to View mode and create empty task in your process. You will get the current date and time in UTC.


"datetime": "2019-01-23T17:11:21+00:00"

You can directly work with the Node.JS methods, by calling methods and modules by declaring a variable using the construction const { } = require(" ").

More information about the available Node.JS modules and methods in the Node.js documentation.

Pay attention! Work with sections C++, DNS, OS, Net, FS is terminated.
