The latest SDK bundle is available at https://zumo.blob.core.windows.net/sdk/azure-mobile-apps-client.js and https://zumo.blob.core.windows.net/sdk/azure-mobile-apps-client.min.js.
To use a specific version of the SDK (recommended), use the bundle at https://zumo.blob.core.windows.net/sdk/azure-mobile-apps-client.VERSION.js or https://zumo.blob.core.windows.net/sdk/azure-mobile-apps-client.VERSION.min.js, where _VERSION_ represents a valid version.
Here are a few examples of how you can use the SDK.
<html> <head> <script src="https://zumo.blob.core.windows.net/sdk/azure-mobile-apps-client.2.0.0.js"></script> <script> // Create a reference to the Azure App Service var clientRef = new WindowsAzure.MobileServiceClient('https://YOUR-SITE-NAME.azurewebsites.net'); </script> </head> </html>
Use the SDK as an npm package
Install the SDK from npm:
npm install azure-mobile-apps-client
Install the SDK from github:
npm install azure/azure-mobile-apps-js-client
var WindowsAzure = require('azure-mobile-apps-client'); // Create a reference to the Azure App Service var clientRef = new WindowsAzure.MobileServiceClient('https://YOUR-SITE-NAME.azurewebsites.net');

- ability to cancel push and pull operations
- triggering a push automatically when a pull is performed
- support for math and date/time functions while querying for records
- callback to allow changing how records are sent to the server during a push
