Realm Web Quick Start¶
On this page
This page shows you how to connect the Realm Web SDK to a MongoDB Realm application, authenticate a user, and work with data. Before you begin, you'll need to create a Realm app for your web app to use.
This page contains only the essential information that you need to set up a MongoDB Realm application. If you prefer to follow a guided tutorial that shows you step-by-step how to set up a working app, check out the Web Tutorial where you'll build a React web app that connects to the Task Tracker backend and uses the GraphQL API.
Install the Web SDK¶
Import the Web SDK¶
If you loaded the SDK using a
<script> tag then you don't need to import
the SDK to use it. Instead, you can access it using the global
Initialize the App¶
To use MongoDB Realm features such as user authentication and functions, you must access your Realm app using your App ID. You can find your App ID in the Realm UI.
Authenticate a User¶
When anonymous authentication is enabled, users can log into your app without providing any identifying information:
Realm provides many additional ways to authenticate, register, and link users.
Call a Function¶
Use the GraphQL API¶
To execute CRUD operations and call custom resolvers through the GraphQL API, we recommend that you use a third-party GraphQL library such as Apollo Client. To authenticate your GraphQL request, include a valid user token in the Authorization header of the request.
