In case you don't want to use the precompiled version on npm, you can build Realm yourself from source. You’ll need an Internet connection the first time you build in order to download the core library.
First clone this repository:
git clone https://github.com/realm/realm-js.git
Then in the cloned directory:
git submodule update --init --recursive
Note: If you have cloned the repo previously make sure you remove your node_modules directory since it may contain stale dependencies which may cause the build to fail.
To build for iOS:
RealmReact.frameworkas the build target
To build for Android:
To build for nodejs:
npm install --build-from-source
On Windows you will need to setup the environment for node-gyp
Option 1: Install windows-build-tools node package
Open an elevated command prompt (As Administrator)
npm install -g --production windows-build-tools
Option 2: Manually install and configure
You can use scripts/tests.sh to run the various tests. You will need yarn installed on the machine.
On Windows some of these targets are available as npm commands.
npm run eslint npm run node-tests npm run test-runners
You can attach a debugger to react-native tests by passing "Debug" to the tests.sh script. A Chrome browser will open and connect to the react native application. Use the built-in Chrome Debugger to debug the code.
./tests.sh react-tests Debug
Using Visual Studio Code
You can debug node tests using Visual Studio Code. Just use one of the launch configurations.
