    Using npm:

    npm install ibmcloud-appid-js
    import AppID from 'ibmcloud-appid-js';

    From the CDN:

    <script src=""></script>

    Or for development purposes use the minified file in this repo:

    <script type='text/javascript' src="dist/appid.min.js"></script>

    Getting Started

    A sample application can be found in the sample folder in this repo.

    You will need an IBM Cloud App ID instance with a singlepageapp application created. Apps using Angular, React, or other frontend frameworks will require a specific type of credentials to use with IBM Cloud App ID. Visit the docs to learn more about creating application credentials.

    Use the clientId and discoveryEndpoint from the application credentials to initialize the AppID instance.

    const appID = new AppID();
    await appID.init({
        clientId: '<SPA_CLIENT_ID>',
        discoveryEndpoint: '<WELL_KNOWN_ENDPOINT>'

    Using the signin() in your app to start authentication:

    document.getElementById('login').addEventListener('click', async () => {
        try {
            const tokens = await appID.signin();
        } catch (e) {

    Read the documentation for information about getting started with IBM Cloud App ID Service.
