Build Status

Provides a node.js based API for running SQL queries against CartoDB.

  • Users are authenticated over OAuth or via an API KEY.
  • Authenticated requests to this API should always be made over SSL.


  • Node 10.x
  • npm 6.x
  • PostgreSQL >= 10.0
  • PostGIS >= 2.4
  • CARTO Postgres Extension >= 0.24.1
  • Redis >= 4
  • GDAL 1.11.0 (bin utils). See installing GDAL
  • zip commandline tool.
  • C++11 (to build internal dependencies if needed)

Install dependencies

$ npm install


Create and edit config/environments/.js from .js.example files. You may find the ./configure script useful to make an edited copy for you, see ./configure --help for a list of supported switches.

Make sure redis is running and knows about active cartodb user.

Make sure your PostgreSQL server is running, is accessible on the host and port specified in the file, has a 'publicuser' role (or whatever you set db_pubuser configuration directive to) and trusts user authentication from localhost connections.

node app.js <environment>

Supported values are development, test, production

See doc/ for API documentation. For examples of use, see under test/.


Run with:

$ npm test

If any issue arise see test/

Note that the environment should be set to ensure the default PostgreSQL user is superuser (PGUSER=postgres make check).



You can’t perform that action at this time.
