Sep 24, 2020 · 2 min read

When building applications for use by developers, streamlining the process for your clients will make your service more approachable and appealing. Integrating a system for verifying valid code identifiers will save hassle and time on the user’s end and improve program usage and speed. This API will validate input identifiers and analyze for incorrect strokes including usage of whitespace, hyphens, underscores, and other special symbols within the identifier.

Our first step in running the command is to install the SDK:

npm install cloudmersive-validate-api-client --save

Or, you can add this snippet to your package.json:

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-validate-api-client": "^1.2.4"

Then, you can call the function, NameIdentifier:

var CloudmersiveValidateApiClient = require('cloudmersive-validate-api-client');
var defaultClient = CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.ApiClient.instance;
// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
var Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];
Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';
var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.NameApi();var input = new CloudmersiveValidateApiClient.ValidateIdentifierRequest(); // ValidateIdentifierRequest | Identifier validation request informationvar callback = function(error, data, response) {
if (error) {
} else {
console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);
apiInstance.nameIdentifier(input, callback);

Following these steps will both improve user experience and interface while ensuring valid input in your application. To access your API Key, visit the Cloudmersive website. This will give you access to 800 free monthly calls across our library of APIs.
