    What is it?

    Etebase is an end-to-end encrypted backend as a service. Think Firebase, but encrypted in a way that only your users can access their data.

    Etebase makes it easy to build end-to-end encrypted applications by taking care of the encryption and its related challenges. It is fully open-source (clients and server) so anyone can review, audit or contribute to its development!

    Using Etebase in your project

    This repository is the JavaScript/TypeScript library for communication with an Etebase server (there also exists libraries for Python, Java, Kotlin, C/C++ and Rust). See for details on how to install the library and dependencies.

    The following is a minimal example of how to change the Etebase password.

    import * as Etebase from 'etebase';
    const etebase = await Etebase.Account.login("username", "password");
    await etebase.changePassword("new password");
    await etebase.logout();

    There are more examples in the Guides section at

    Known issues

    If you get build errors complaining about export = URI; from urijs then you need to set compilerOptions.allowSyntheticDefaultImports to true in tsconfig.json.

    Examples of projects that use Etebase

    • EteSync Notes - A secure, end-to-end encrypted, and privacy-respecting notes mobile application.
    • EteSync Web - A secure, end-to-end encrypted, and privacy-respecting notes web frontend application.
    • EteSync DAV - Provides a local CalDAV and CardDAV server that acts as an EteSync compatibility layer/adapter for clients such as Thunderbird, Outlook and Apple Contacts to connect with EteSync.

    Building Etebase

    git clone
    cd etebase-js
    yarn install
    yarn run build

    Running tests requires a (test) Etebase server running, defaulting to http://localhost:8033, but can be overridden with the environment variable ETEBASE_TEST_API_URL.

    cd ..
    git clone
    cd server
    ... # Follow install instructions
    ... # Build and start a server
    cd ../etebase-js
    env ETEBASE_TEST_API_URL=http://localhost:8033 yarn run test
