Create an article

Now we have a form, we can handle when the user submits it and then pass it to the API for to handle and turn into an article.

<!DOCTYPE>
<html>
<head>
<script src="https://unpkg.com/@deskpro/deskpro-api-client-javascript@2.0.0/dist/index.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<form>
<div>
Title:
<input type="text" name="title">
</div>
<div>
Content:
<textarea name="content" cols="80" rows="10"></textarea>
</div>
<button type="submit">Submit</button>
</form>
<script>
var form = document.getElementsByTagName('form')[0];
form.addEventListener('submit', function(e) {
e.preventDefault();
var body = {
title: form.elements['title'].value,
content: form.elements['content'].value,
content_input_type: 'rte',
status: 'published'
};
// Send the article body to the API.
var client = new DeskproClient('http://deskpro.company.com');
client.setAuthKey(1, 'dev-admin-code');
client.post('/articles', body)
.then(function(resp) {
console.log('Article created with ID ' + resp.data.id);
})
.catch(function(err) {
console.error(err.message);
});
});
</script>
</body>
</html>

Submitting the form should show you something like this in your debug console:

Article created with ID 107
