PocketBase JavaScript SDK

Official JavaScript SDK (browser and node) for interacting with the PocketBase API.

Installation

Browser (manually via script tag)

<script src="/path/to/dist/pocketbase.umd.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    const pb = new PocketBase("https://example.com")
    ...
</script>

OR if you are using ES modules:

<script type="module">
    import PocketBase from '/path/to/dist/pocketbase.es.mjs'

    const pb = new PocketBase("https://example.com")
    ...
</script>

Node.js (via npm)

npm install pocketbase --save
// Using ES modules (default)
import PocketBase from 'pocketbase'

// OR if you are using CommonJS modules
const PocketBase = require('pocketbase/cjs')

🔧 For Node < 17 you'll need to load a fetch() polyfill. I recommend lquixada/cross-fetch:

// npm install cross-fetch --save
import 'cross-fetch/polyfill';

🔧 Node doesn't have native EventSource implementation, so in order to use the realtime subscriptions you'll need to load a EventSource polyfill.

// for server: npm install eventsource --save
import eventsource from 'eventsource';

// for React Native: npm install react-native-sse --save
import eventsource from "react-native-sse";

global.EventSource = eventsource;

Usage

import PocketBase from 'pocketbase';

const pb = new PocketBase('http://127.0.0.1:8090');

...

// list and filter "example" collection records
const result = await pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20, {
    filter: 'status = true && created > "2022-08-01 10:00:00"'
});

// authenticate as auth collection record
const userData = await pb.collection('users').authWithPassword('test@example.com', '123456');

// or as super-admin
const adminData = await pb.admins.authWithPassword('test@example.com', '123456');

// and much more...

More detailed API docs and copy-paste examples could be found in the API documentation for each service.

Caveats

Binding filter parameters

The SDK comes with a helper pb.filter(expr, params) method to generate a filter string with placeholder parameters ({:paramName}) populated from an object.

This method is also recommended when using the SDK in Node/Deno/Bun server-side list queries and accepting untrusted user input as filter string arguments, because it will take care to properly escape the generated string expression, avoiding eventual string injection attacks (on the client-side this is not much of an issue).

const records = await pb.collection("example").getList(1, 20, {
  // the same as: "title ~ 'te\\'st' && (totalA = 123 || totalB = 123)"
  filter: pb.filter("title ~ {:title} && (totalA = {:num} || totalB = {:num})", { title: "te'st", num: 123 })
})

The supported placeholder parameter values are:

  • string (single quotes are autoescaped)
  • number
  • boolean
  • Date object (will be stringified into the format expected by PocketBase)
  • null
  • everything else is converted to a string using JSON.stringify()

File upload

PocketBase Web API supports file upload via multipart/form-data requests, which means that to upload a file it is enough to provide either a FormData instance OR plain object with File/Blob prop values.

  • Using FormData as body:

    // the standard way to create multipart/form-data body
    const data = new FormData();
    data.set('title', 'lorem ipsum...')
    data.set('document', new File(...))
    
    await pb.collection('example').create(data);
  • Using plain object as body (this is the same as above and it will be converted to FormData behind the scenes):

    const data = {
      'title':    'lorem ipsum...',
      'document': new File(...),
    };
    
    await pb.collection('example').create(data);

Error handling

All services return a standard Promise-based response, so the error handling is straightforward:

pb.collection('example').getList(1, 50).then((result) {
  // success...
  console.log('Result:', result);
}).catch((error) {
  // error...
  console.log('Error:', error);
});

// OR if you are using the async/await syntax:
try {
  const result = await pb.collection('example').getList(1, 50);
  console.log('Result:', result);
} catch (error) {
  console.log('Error:', error);
}

The response error is normalized and always returned as ClientResponseError object with the following public fields that you could use:

ClientResponseError {
    url:           string,     // requested url
    status:        number,     // response status code
    response:      { ... },    // the API JSON error response
    isAbort:       boolean,    // is abort/cancellation error
    originalError: Error|null, // the original non-normalized error
}

Auth store

The SDK keeps track of the authenticated token and auth model for you via the pb.authStore instance.

LocalAuthStore (default)

The default LocalAuthStore uses the browser's LocalStorage if available, otherwise - will fallback to runtime/memory (aka. on page refresh or service restart you'll have to authenticate again).

Conveniently, the default store also takes care to automatically sync the auth store state between multiple tabs.

NB! Deno also supports LocalStorage but keep in mind that, unlike in browsers where the client is the only user, by default Deno LocalStorage will be shared by all clients making requests to your server!

AsyncAuthStore

The SDK comes also with a helper AsyncAuthStore that you can use to integrate with any 3rd party async storage implementation (usually this is needed when working with React Native):

import AsyncStorage from '@react-native-async-storage/async-storage';
import PocketBase, { AsyncAuthStore } from 'pocketbase';

const store = new AsyncAuthStore({
    save:    async (serialized) => AsyncStorage.setItem('pb_auth', serialized),
    initial: AsyncStorage.getItem('pb_auth'),
});

const pb = new PocketBase('http://127.0.0.1:8090', store)
Custom auth store

In some situations it could be easier to create your own custom auth store. For this you can extend BaseAuthStore and pass the new custom instance as constructor argument to the client:

import PocketBase, { BaseAuthStore } from 'pocketbase';

class CustomAuthStore extends BaseAuthStore {
    save(token, model) {
        super.save(token, model);

        // your custom business logic...
    }
}

const pb = new PocketBase('http://127.0.0.1:8090', new CustomAuthStore());
Common auth store fields and methods

The default pb.authStore extends BaseAuthStore and has the following public members that you can use:

BaseAuthStore {
    // base fields
    model:        RecordModel|AdminModel|null // the authenticated auth record or admin model
    token:        string // the authenticated token
    isValid:      boolean // checks if the store has existing and unexpired token
    isAdmin:      boolean // checks if the store state is for admin
    isAuthRecord: boolean // checks if the store state is for an auth record

    // main methods
    clear()            // "logout" the authenticated record or admin model
    save(token, model) // update the store with the new auth data
    onChange(callback, fireImmediately = false) // register a callback that will be called on store change

    // cookie parse and serialize helpers
    loadFromCookie(cookieHeader, key = 'pb_auth')
    exportToCookie(options = {}, key = 'pb_auth')
}

To "logout" an authenticated record or admin you can call pb.authStore.clear().

To "listen" for changes in the auth store, you can register a new listener via pb.authStore.onChange, eg:

// triggered everytime on store change
const removeListener1 = pb.authStore.onChange((token, model) => {
    console.log('New store data 1:', token, model)
});

// triggered once right after registration and everytime on store change
const removeListener2 = pb.authStore.onChange((token, model) => {
    console.log('New store data 2:', token, model)
}, true);

// (optional) removes the attached listeners
removeListener1();
removeListener2();

Auto cancellation

The SDK client will auto cancel duplicated pending requests for you. For example, if you have the following 3 duplicated endpoint calls, only the last one will be executed, while the first 2 will be cancelled with ClientResponseError error:

pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20) // cancelled
pb.collection('example').getList(2, 20) // cancelled
pb.collection('example').getList(3, 20) // executed

To change this behavior per request basis, you can adjust the requestKey: null|string special query parameter. Set it to null to unset the default request identifier and to disable auto cancellation for the specific request. Or set it to a unique string that will be used as request identifier and based on which pending requests will be matched (default to HTTP_METHOD + path, eg. "GET /api/users")

Example:

pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20);                        // cancelled
pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20);                        // executed
pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20, { requestKey: "test" }) // cancelled
pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20, { requestKey: "test" }) // executed
pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20, { requestKey: null })   // executed
pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20, { requestKey: null })   // executed

// globally disable auto cancellation
pb.autoCancellation(false);

pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20); // executed
pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20); // executed
pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20); // executed

If you want to globally disable the auto cancellation behavior, you could set pb.autoCancellation(false).

To manually cancel pending requests, you could use pb.cancelAllRequests() or pb.cancelRequest(requestKey).

Specify TypeScript definitions

You could specify custom TypeScript definitions for your Record models using generics:

interface Task {
  // type the collection fields you want to use...
  id:   string;
  name: string;
}

pb.collection('tasks').getList<Task>(1, 20) // -> results in Promise<ListResult<Task>>
pb.collection('tasks').getOne<Task>("RECORD_ID")  // -> results in Promise<Task>

Alternatively, if you don't want to type the generic argument every time you can define a global PocketBase type using type assertion:

interface Task {
  id:   string;
  name: string;
}

interface Post {
  id:     string;
  title:  string;
  active: boolean;
}

interface TypedPocketBase extends PocketBase {
  collection(idOrName: string): RecordService // default fallback for any other collection
  collection(idOrName: 'tasks'): RecordService<Task>
  collection(idOrName: 'posts'): RecordService<Post>
}

...

const pb = new PocketBase("http://127.0.0.1:8090") as TypedPocketBase;

pb.collection('tasks').getOne("RECORD_ID") // -> results in Promise<Task>
pb.collection('posts').getOne("RECORD_ID") // -> results in Promise<Post>

Custom request options

All API services accept an optional options argument (usually the last one and of type SendOptions), that can be used to provide:

  • custom headers for a single request
  • custom fetch options
  • or even your own fetch implementation

For example:

pb.collection('example').getList(1, 20, {
    expand:          'someRel',
    otherQueryParam: '123',

    // custom headers
    headers: {
        'X-Custom-Header': 'example',
    },

    // custom fetch options
    keepalive: false,
    cache:     'no-store',

    // or custom fetch implementation
    fetch: async (url, config) => { ... },
})

Note that for backward compatability and to minimize the verbosity, any "unknown" top-level field will be treated as query parameter.

Send hooks

Sometimes you may want to modify the request data globally or to customize the response.

To accomplish this, the SDK provides 2 function hooks:

  • beforeSend - triggered right before sending the fetch request, allowing you to inspect/modify the request config.

    const pb = new PocketBase('http://127.0.0.1:8090');
    
    pb.beforeSend = function (url, options) {
        // For list of the possible request options properties check
        // https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/fetch#options
        options.headers = Object.assign({}, options.headers, {
            'X-Custom-Header': 'example',
        });
    
        return { url, options };
    };
  • afterSend - triggered after successfully sending the fetch request, allowing you to inspect/modify the response object and its parsed data.

    const pb = new PocketBase('http://127.0.0.1:8090');
    
    pb.afterSend = function (response, data) {
        // do something with the response state
        console.log(response.status);
    
        return Object.assign(data, {
            // extend the data...
            "additionalField": 123,
        });
    };

SSR integration

Unfortunately, there is no "one size fits all" solution because each framework handle SSR differently (and even in a single framework there is more than one way of doing things).

But in general, the idea is to use a cookie based flow:

  1. Create a new PocketBase instance for each server-side request
  2. "Load/Feed" your pb.authStore with data from the request cookie
  3. Perform your application server-side actions
  4. Before returning the response to the client, update the cookie with the latest pb.authStore state

All BaseAuthStore instances have 2 helper methods that should make working with cookies a little bit easier:

// update the store with the parsed data from the cookie string
pb.authStore.loadFromCookie('pb_auth=...');

// exports the store data as cookie, with option to extend the default SameSite, Secure, HttpOnly, Path and Expires attributes
pb.authStore.exportToCookie({ httpOnly: false }); // Output: 'pb_auth=...'

Below you could find several examples:

SvelteKit

One way to integrate with SvelteKit SSR could be to create the PocketBase client in a hook handle and pass it to the other server-side actions using the event.locals.

// src/hooks.server.js
import PocketBase from 'pocketbase';

/** @type {import('@sveltejs/kit').Handle} */
export async function handle({ event, resolve }) {
    event.locals.pb = new PocketBase('http://127.0.0.1:8090');

    // load the store data from the request cookie string
    event.locals.pb.authStore.loadFromCookie(event.request.headers.get('cookie') || '');

    try {
        // get an up-to-date auth store state by verifying and refreshing the loaded auth model (if any)
        event.locals.pb.authStore.isValid && await event.locals.pb.collection('users').authRefresh();
    } catch (_) {
        // clear the auth store on failed refresh
        event.locals.pb.authStore.clear();
    }

    const response = await resolve(event);

    // send back the default 'pb_auth' cookie to the client with the latest store state
    response.headers.append('set-cookie', event.locals.pb.authStore.exportToCookie());

    return response;
}

And then, in some of your server-side actions, you could directly access the previously created event.locals.pb instance:

// src/routes/login/+server.js
/**
 * Creates a `POST /login` server-side endpoint
 *
 * @type {import('./$types').RequestHandler}
 */
export async function POST({ request, locals }) {
    const { email, password } = await request.json();

    const { token, record } = await locals.pb.collection('users').authWithPassword(email, password);

    return new Response('Success...');
}

For proper locals.pb type detection, you can also add PocketBase in your your global types definition:

// src/app.d.ts
import PocketBase from 'pocketbase';

declare global {
    declare namespace App {
        interface Locals {
            pb: PocketBase
        }
    }
}
Astro

To integrate with Astro SSR, you could create the PocketBase client in the Middleware and pass it to the Astro components using the Astro.locals.

// src/middleware/index.ts
import PocketBase from 'pocketbase';

import { defineMiddleware } from 'astro/middleware';

export const onRequest = defineMiddleware(async ({ locals, request }: any, next: () => any) => {
    locals.pb = new PocketBase('http://127.0.0.1:8090');

    // load the store data from the request cookie string
    locals.pb.authStore.loadFromCookie(request.headers.get('cookie') || '');

    try {
        // get an up-to-date auth store state by verifying and refreshing the loaded auth model (if any)
        locals.pb.authStore.isValid && await locals.pb.collection('users').authRefresh();
    } catch (_) {
        // clear the auth store on failed refresh
        locals.pb.authStore.clear();
    }

    const response = await next();

    // send back the default 'pb_auth' cookie to the client with the latest store state
    response.headers.append('set-cookie', locals.pb.authStore.exportToCookie());

    return response;
});

And then, in your Astro file's component script, you could directly access the previously created locals.pb instance:

// src/pages/index.astro
---
const locals = Astro.locals;

const userAuth = async () => {
    const { token, record } = await locals.pb.collection('users').authWithPassword('test@example.com', '123456');

    return new Response('Success...');
};
---

Although middleware functionality is available in both SSG and SSR projects, you would likely want to handle any sensitive data on the server side. Update your output configuration to 'server':

// astro.config.mjs
import { defineConfig } from 'astro/config';

export default defineConfig({
    output: 'server'
});
Nuxt 3

One way to integrate with Nuxt 3 SSR could be to create the PocketBase client in a nuxt plugin and provide it as a helper to the nuxtApp instance:

// plugins/pocketbase.js
import PocketBase from 'pocketbase';

export default defineNuxtPlugin(async () => {
  const pb = new PocketBase('http://127.0.0.1:8090');

  const cookie = useCookie('pb_auth', {
    path:     '/',
    secure:   true,
    sameSite: 'strict',
    httpOnly: false, // change to "true" if you want only server-side access
    maxAge:   604800,
  })

  // load the store data from the cookie value
  pb.authStore.save(cookie.value?.token, cookie.value?.model);

  // send back the default 'pb_auth' cookie to the client with the latest store state
  pb.authStore.onChange(() => {
    cookie.value = {
      token: pb.authStore.token,
      model: pb.authStore.model,
    };
  });

  try {
      // get an up-to-date auth store state by verifying and refreshing the loaded auth model (if any)
      pb.authStore.isValid && await pb.collection('users').authRefresh();
  } catch (_) {
      // clear the auth store on failed refresh
      pb.authStore.clear();
  }

  return {
    provide: { pb }
  }
});

And then in your component you could access it like this:

<template>
  <div>
    Show: {{ data }}
  </div>
</template>

<script setup>
  const { data } = await useAsyncData(async (nuxtApp) => {
    // fetch and return all "example" records...
    const records = await nuxtApp.$pb.collection('example').getFullList();

    return structuredClone(records);
  })
</script>
Nuxt 2

One way to integrate with Nuxt 2 SSR could be to create the PocketBase client in a nuxt plugin and provide it as a helper to the $root context:

// plugins/pocketbase.js
import PocketBase from  'pocketbase';

export default async (ctx, inject) => {
  const pb = new PocketBase('http://127.0.0.1:8090');

  // load the store data from the request cookie string
  pb.authStore.loadFromCookie(ctx.req?.headers?.cookie || '');

  // send back the default 'pb_auth' cookie to the client with the latest store state
  pb.authStore.onChange(() => {
    ctx.res?.setHeader('set-cookie', pb.authStore.exportToCookie());
  });

  try {
      // get an up-to-date auth store state by verifying and refreshing the loaded auth model (if any)
      pb.authStore.isValid && await pb.collection('users').authRefresh();
  } catch (_) {
      // clear the auth store on failed refresh
      pb.authStore.clear();
  }

  inject('pocketbase', pb);
};

And then in your component you could access it like this:

<template>
  <div>
    Show: {{ items }}
  </div>
</template>

<script>
  export default {
    async asyncData({ $pocketbase }) {
      // fetch and return all "example" records...
      const items = await $pocketbase.collection('example').getFullList();

      return { items }
    }
  }
</script>
Next.js

Next.js doesn't seem to have a central place where you can read/modify the server request and response. There is support for middlewares, but they are very limited and, at the time of writing, you can't pass data from a middleware to the getServerSideProps functions (https://github.com/vercel/next.js/discussions/31792).

One way to integrate with Next.js SSR could be to create a custom PocketBase instance in each of your getServerSideProps:

import PocketBase from 'pocketbase';

// you can place this helper in a separate file so that it can be reused
async function initPocketBase(req, res) {
  const pb = new PocketBase('http://127.0.0.1:8090');

  // load the store data from the request cookie string
  pb.authStore.loadFromCookie(req?.headers?.cookie || '');

  // send back the default 'pb_auth' cookie to the client with the latest store state
  pb.authStore.onChange(() => {
    res?.setHeader('set-cookie', pb.authStore.exportToCookie());
  });

  try {
      // get an up-to-date auth store state by verifying and refreshing the loaded auth model (if any)
      pb.authStore.isValid && await pb.collection('users').authRefresh();
  } catch (_) {
      // clear the auth store on failed refresh
      pb.authStore.clear();
  }

  return pb
}

export async function getServerSideProps({ req, res }) {
  const pb = await initPocketBase(req, res)

  // fetch example records...
  const result = await pb.collection('example').getList(1, 30);

  return {
    props: {
      // ...
    },
  }
}

export default function Home() {
  return (
    <div>Hello world!</div>
  )
}

Security

The most common frontend related vulnerability is XSS (and CSRF when dealing with cookies). Fortunately, modern browsers can detect and mitigate most of this type of attacks if Content Security Policy (CSP) is provided.

To prevent a malicious user or 3rd party script to steal your PocketBase auth token, it is recommended to configure a basic CSP for your application (either as meta tag or HTTP header).

This is out of the scope of the SDK, but you could find more resources about CSP at:

Depending on how and where you use the JS SDK, it is also recommended to use the helper pb.filter(expr, params) when constructing filter strings with untrusted user input to avoid eventual string injection attacks (see Binding filter parameters).
