I was wondering how to set the filter option for wp.getPosts. I want to get posts with a status of 'trash'. filter is currently blank, and returns all posts other than trash.

I am using the xmlrpc wordpress api and the node-wordpress plugin. https://github.com/scottgonzalez/node-wordpress

Here is my current code:

wp.getPosts('<filter>', ['title','status'], function(err, data){


I am not sure what to put in the filter section, all the examples I could find are PHP examples and do not work in this context where I am using Javascript.

Is it even possible to get the posts with a status of 'trash'?

I think you're looking for this...

      status: 'trash',
    function( err, data ) {
      console.log( data );
