joola.sdk is a Software Development Kit (SDK) responsible for communication between a client using the SDK and the joola server. If you don't have a joola server running yet, get one up and running in minutes or open a free account with free.joola.

The SDK can consume ANY endpoint of the joola framework, however for brevity purposes, the API manual below includes only the main topics of:

  • Pushing data is done by sending an array of JSON documents for storage in joola cache.
  • When Querying, you describe the data you wish to consume and shape it to your liking.
  • Transform your data into insight using Data Visualization.

Getting the SDK

Option 1: Include joola.sdk in your HTML.

<script src="http://localhost:8080/joola.js"></script>

Optional: if you'll include ?APIToken=XXXXXX, you'll be able to use joola.sdk without calling init.

Option 2: Require the SDK require('joola.sdk');

$ npm install
var joola = require('joola.sdk');

Quick Example

<!DOCTYPE html>

<div id="metric-visits"></div>

<script src="http://localhost:8080/joola.js?APIToken=12345"></script>
<script>'ready', function () {
    joola.beacon.insert('visits', {username: 'thisisme', visits: 1});
    new joola.viz.Metric({
      container: '#metric-visits',
      query: {
        timeframe: 'last_hour',
        interval: 'minute',
        dimensions: [],
        metrics: ['visits']
