With Microsoft Azure Mobile Apps you can add a scalable backend to your connected client applications in minutes. To learn more about Azure Mobile Apps, visit the Mobile Apps documentation.
The Cordova plugin is published from the Azure/azure-mobile-apps-cordova-client repository by bundling source code in this repository. Refer Azure/azure-mobile-apps-cordova-client for more details about the Cordova plugin.
You can consume the SDK in one of the following ways.
The latest SDK bundle is available at https://zumo.blob.core.windows.net/sdk/azure-mobile-apps-client.js and https://zumo.blob.core.windows.net/sdk/azure-mobile-apps-client.min.js.
To use a specific version of the SDK (recommended), use the bundle at https://zumo.blob.core.windows.net/sdk/azure-mobile-apps-client.__VERSION__.js or https://zumo.blob.core.windows.net/sdk/azure-mobile-apps-client.__VERSION__.min.js, where __VERSION__ represents a valid version.
Here are a few examples of how you can use the SDK.
<html> <head> <script src="https://zumo.blob.core.windows.net/sdk/azure-mobile-apps-client.2.0.0.js"></script> <script> // Create a reference to the Azure App Service var clientRef = new WindowsAzure.MobileServiceClient('https://YOUR-SITE-NAME.azurewebsites.net'); </script> </head> </html>
Install the SDK from npm:
npm install azure-mobile-apps-client
Install the SDK from github:
npm install azure/azure-mobile-apps-js-client
var WindowsAzure = require('azure-mobile-apps-client'); // Create a reference to the Azure App Service var clientRef = new WindowsAzure.MobileServiceClient('https://YOUR-SITE-NAME.azurewebsites.net');
This page explains the offline data sync feature in detail.
Refer https://azure.github.io/azure-mobile-apps-js-client for detailed API reference.
To build the SDK bundle yourself, follow these steps:
git clone https://github.com/Azure/azure-mobile-apps-js-client.git cd azure-mobile-apps-js-client npm install npm run build
The built files will be copied to the
/dist directory. The bundles for use by a web app in a browser are azure-mobile-apps-client.js and azure-mobile-apps-client.min.js. The bundle for use by the azure/azure-mobile-apps-cordova-client repository is azure-mobile-apps-client-cordova.js.
To run unit tests for the browser, run:
npm run browserut
Brief list of work planned in the future:
All these will be added over a series of updates in the next few days. Stay tuned!
