Clarifai API JavaScript Client

This is the official JavaScript client for interacting with our powerful recognition API. The Clarifai API offers image and video recognition as a service. Whether you have one image or billions, you are only steps away from using artificial intelligence to recognize your visual content.

Build Status npm version


Install the API client:

npm install clarifai

Basic Use

Firstly, generate your Clarifai API key on the API keys page. The client uses it for authentication.

Then, use the code below to create a Clarifai.App instance using which you interact with the client.

const Clarifai = require('clarifai');
const app = new Clarifai.App({
 apiKey: 'YOUR_API_KEY'

This will work in node.js and browsers via Browserify.

You can also use the SDK by adding this script to your HTML:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://sdk.clarifai.com/js/clarifai-latest.js"></script>


Dive right into code examples to get up and running as quickly as possible with our Quick Start.

React Native

You'll most likely encounter the error process.nextTick is not a function while using this library with React Native.

To solve this, add process.nextTick = setImmediate; as close to the top of your entrypoint as you can. See #20 for more info.
