Install the Chat SDK

Comapi SDK can be installed from either NPM or Bower depending on your intended usage.

If you are integration into a classical javascript project and you just want to include a script that exposes some global objects in your page, then use Bower.

If you are using a project that utilises ES6 modules i.e angular2, ionic2 etc., then use NPM.


Install SDK ...

npm install @comapi/sdk-js-chat --save

Import into your code and access SDK methods ...

import { ComapiChatClient } from "@comapi/sdk-js-chat"

class MyClass{
    public displayVersion(){
        console.log(`Comapi version: ${ComapiChatClient.version}`);


Install package from bower ...

bower install comapi-sdk-js-chat

Include the script somewhere ...

<script src="bower_components/comapi-sdk-js-chat/dist/comapi-chat-client.js"></script>

There is also a minified version comapi-chat-client.min.js available.

For all subsequent classical snippets, I will assume that this script has been included

Access SDK methods ...

console.log("Comapi version: " + COMAPI_CHAT.ComapiChatClient.version);

Use of ES6 Promises

ES6 Promises are extensively used within this SDK. Depending on what browsers you are targeting, you may need to include a poly-fill for this. Several of these are available online.
