This React seed app provides a wrapper for @sasjs/adapter, a lightning fast adapter for talking to SAS - on Viya, EBI, or SASjs Server.

Frontend Web

These are the minimal steps to get up and running:

  1. clone the repo and change into the directory
  2. Open index.html and set the serverType to SASVIYA, SAS9, or SASJS depending on backend server
  3. Also change appLoc to the backend root location in which you plan to deploy the services.
  4. run npm install
  5. run npm run build to create a production build in the build folder. This can be deployed to the SAS web server here.

If you are running locally you will also need to whitelist localhost on the server, or enable CORS in your browser as described here

Backend Services

The best way to deploy SAS services is using the SASjs CLI. Simply install, update the defaultTarget attribute in the sasjsconfig.json file, and run the following commands:

sasjs auth # be sure to use the same serverType and appLoc as steps 2 & 3 above
sasjs cbd

This will first authenticate to your target (follow the prompts) and after that you can just run sasjs cbd to rebuild and deploy your services. If you set streamweb:true in the sasjsconfig.json it will also deploy your frontend as a streaming app (no need for a web server).

If you are just looking to build quickly and don't have time to install NPM then you can also create the web services on SAS9 or SASVIYA by running the code below.

%let appLoc=/Public/app/react-seed-app; /* SAS Folders App Location */
filename mc url "";
%inc mc;
filename ft15f001 temp;
    proc sql;
    create table areas as select distinct area from sashelp.springs;
%mx_createwebservice(path=&appLoc/services/common, name=appinit)
    proc sql;
    create table springs as select * from sashelp.springs
      where area in (select area from areas);
%mx_createwebservice(path=&appLoc/services/common, name=getdata)

Supported Versions of SAS

This app will work on all versions of SAS Viya, in SAS 9 EBI from 9.3 and above, and on regular Foundation SAS (or WPS) installs using SASjs Server.

It will not work on SAS University edition.

Backend Services in JavaScript

If you are writing services in JS and your service depends on any third party library/package then you need to bundle that service before deploying it to sasjs server otherwise the service wouldn't work. You can choose any bundler for this process. One possible option could be webpack. And if you choose webpack then you can use it like:
npx webpack --mode none --target node --entry <path-of-file-to-bundle/build> --output-path <path-of-output-folder> --output-filename <name-of-output-file>

In our case we have a mock service at path sasjs/mocks/appinit.js and we want to build and make it ready for deployment. So, we have to run following in terminal:
npx webpack --mode none --target node --entry ./sasjs/mocks/appinit.js --output-path sasjsbuild/mocks --output-filename appinit.js
