npm devDependency Status

A ready-to-use connect/sync widget, as add-on library for remoteStorage.js.


import RemoteStorage from 'remotestoragejs';
import Widget from 'remotestorage-widget';

// ...

const remoteStorage = new RemoteStorage(/* options */);

remoteStorage.access.claim('bookmarks', 'rw');

const widget = new Widget(remoteStorage);

// ...


The widget has some configuration options to customize the behavior:

Option Description Type Default
leaveOpen Keep the widget open when user clicks outside of it Boolean false
autoCloseAfter Timeout after which the widget closes automatically (in milliseconds). The widget only closes when a storage is connected. Number 1500
skipInitial Don't show the initial connect hint, but show sign-in screen directly instead Boolean false
logging Enable logging for debugging purposes Boolean false


const widget = new Widget(remoteStorage, { autoCloseAfter: 2000 });

Available Functions

attach(elementID) - Attach the widget to the DOM and display it. You can use an optional element ID that the widget should be attached to. Otherwise it will be attached to the body.

While the attach() method is required for the widget to be actually shown, the following functions are usually not needed. They allow for fine-tuning the experience.

close() - Close/minimize the widget to only show the icon.

open() - Open the widget when it's minimized.

toggle() - Switch between open and closed state.
