Baqend JavaScript SDK

Baqend JavaScript SDK and CLI for High-Performance Websites

CLI

Baqend provides a CLI to easily manage your app. Install it by typing npm install -g baqend. Afterwards you can use the baqend command in your terminal.

If you don't already have a Baqend account, type baqend register to create your first app. Now you can open the dashboard of your app with baqend dashboard. To see all the command use baqend help.

Setup

To use the Baqend SDK, just include the baqend.js or baqend.min.js from the dist folder at the bottom of your body.
Alternatively you can install the Baqend SDK with npm. Just type npm install --save-dev baqend
Or install with bower bower install --save-dev baqend
Or download the latest release directly from GitHub.

<!-- for development -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="dist/baqend.js"></script>
<!-- for production -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="dist/baqend.min.js"></script>

You can also include it from our CDN-Provider fastly.

<!-- for development -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="//www.baqend.com/js-sdk/latest/baqend.js"></script>
<!-- for production -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="//www.baqend.com/js-sdk/latest/baqend.min.js"></script>

The Baqend SDK provides a global DB variable by default.

Baqend Real-Time SDK

If you want to use real-time queries, you have to either use baqend-realtime.js or baqend-realtime.min.js for production. In Addition, you can include Rx.js v5 into your project, for many advanced Observable features. You can use the unpkg CDN:

<script type="text/javascript" src="//unpkg.com/@reactivex/rxjs@5.2.0/dist/global/Rx.js"></script>
<!-- include the SDK after rxjs -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="//www.baqend.com/js-sdk/latest/baqend-realtime.js"></script>

The SDK is shipped with the core-js Observable shim per default. If you include Rx.js globally, it will be detected and used by the SDK automatically. You can also set the Observable implementation which the SDK will use, by setting the require('baqend/realtime').Observable = Observable afterwards.

Initialize

Before you can actually use the Baqend SDK, you must link the Baqend SDK to your Baqend Account. Just call DB.connect(<your Baqend APP>) after including the Baqend SDK.

The Baqend SDK connects to your Baqend and initialize the SDK. If the connection was successfully established the ready callback will be called and the DB can be used to load, query and save objects.

<script type="text/javascript" src="baqend.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
 
// connects to your Baqend Accounts example app
DB.connect('example');
 
// Or pass true as a second parameter for an encrypted connection
DB.connect('example', true);
 
// For custom deployments i.e. the community edition use:
DB.connect('https://baqend.example.com/v1');
 
// waits while the SDK connects to your Baqend
DB.ready(function() {
    // work with your Baqend
    DB.User.find()
        ...
});
 
</script> 

Usage in Node.js

The Baqend SDK can also be used in Node.js. Just do an npm install --save baqend and use require('baqend') in your code.

var DB = require('baqend');
 
// connects to your Baqend Accounts example app
DB.connect('example');
 
// waits while the SDK connects to your Baqend
DB.ready(function() {
    // work with your Baqend
    DB.User.find()
        ...
});

Note: The Baqend Real-Time SDK can be required with var DB = require('baqend/realtime');, ensure that you only require either the Baqend SDK or the Baqend Real-Time SDK and not both.

Building with browserify

Just install baqend with npm install --save-dev baqend, require('baqend') in your code and build the Baqend SDK + your code with browserify.

var DB = require('baqend');
 
// connects to your Baqend Accounts example app
DB.connect('example');
 
// waits while the SDK connects to your Baqend
DB.ready(function() {
    // work with your Baqend
    DB.User.find()
        ...
});

Note: The Baqend Streaming SDK can be required with var DB = require('baqend/realtime');, ensure that you only require either the Baqend SDK or the Baqend Streaming SDK and not both.

Type browserify scripts/main.js > scripts/bundle.js to build your main.js script. For more advanced building steps visit the browserify Documentation.

Building with requirejs

Use the Baqend SDK from the /dist folder or install the SDK via npm npm install --save-dev baqend. Add the Baqend SDK as a dependency of your script and use the required Baqend SDK.

require(["scripts/baqend.js"], function(DB) {
    // connects to your Baqend Account
    DB.connect('example');
 
    // waits while the SDK connects to your Baqend
    DB.ready(function() {
        // work with your Baqend
        DB.User.find()
            ...
    });
});
