Sendbird Typescript Platform SDK

link to docs This is a Node.js package written in Typescript that makes talking to the Sendbird Platform API easier. With this library you can extend your Sendbird integration to include advanced features like message-, and channel automation, user management, create user authentication tokens, and create bots.

Differences from upstream Repo

  • Fixed TS errors, and remove node_modules committed in the repo.
  • Upgraded to TS v5 and support only versions above Node v18
  • Publish the dist/ directory for use instead of directly using the source file which caused TS errors in consuming applications.
  • Run build automatically when running npm run publish

To publish, make sure you update the version using the appropriate npm version command and then run npm publish.

🔥 Quick start

import * as sendbird from 'sendbird-platform-sdk-typescript';
const serverConfig = new sendbird.ServerConfiguration("https://api-{app_id}.sendbird.com", { "app_id": APP_ID })
const configuration = sendbird.createConfiguration({ baseServer : serverConfig });
const userAPI = new sendbird.UserApi(configuration);
// List users, use the next token in the response to get the next page of users in subsequent requests
userAPI.listUsers(API_TOKEN, '', 10).then((users) => {
    console.log("Listing first 10 users:\n")
}).catch((error) => {
    console.log("Error listing users")
// How to create a user
const userData: sendbird.CreateUserData = {
    userId: "bob_smith",
    nickname: "Bob",
    profileUrl: "https://cataas.com/c"
userAPI.createUser(API_TOKEN, userData).then((user) => {
    console.log("User created:\n")
}).catch((error) => {
    console.log("Error creating user:")
