The Cisco Webex JS SDK

Upgrading from Cisco Spark to Webex?

This is a monorepo containing all officially maintained Cisco Webex JS SDK modules in the same repo. webex is a collection of node modules targeting our external APIs.

Install

We test against the Active LTS (Long Term Support) version of Node.js and use npm@6 to run security audits.

To install the latest stable version of the SDK from NPM:

npm install --save webex

Usage

To use the SDK, you will need Cisco Webex credentials. If you do not already have a Cisco Webex account, visit Cisco Webex for Developers to create your account and retrieve your access token.

See the detailed docs for more usage examples.

const Webex = require(`webex`);
const webex = Webex.init({
  credentials: {
    access_token: <your webex teams access token>
  }
});

// Create a room with the title "My First Room"
// Add Alice and Bob to the room
// Send a **Hi Everyone** message to the room
webex.rooms.create({ title: `My First Room` }).then(room => {
  return Promise.all([
    webex.memberships.create({
      roomId: room.id,
      personEmail: `alice@example.com`
    }),
    webex.memberships.create({
      roomId: room.id,
      personEmail: `bob@example.com`
    })
  ]).then(() =>
    webex.messages.create({
      markdown: `**Hi Everyone**`,
      roomId: room.id
    })
  );
});

A note on browser usage

We do provide a built, minified version of the SDK, that includes window.webex, which is hosted on our repo and can be used with gitcdn.xyz.

<script src="https://gitcdn.xyz/repo/webex/webex-js-sdk/master/packages/node_modules/webex/umd/webex.min.js"></script>

In-browser usage is almost the same as Node.js, but it handles the user authentication flow for you. See the browser guide for more information.

If you're already using a bundler (like Webpack or Rollup) you can simply import/require the package and use the above snippet and assign the initialized team variable to window.webex. For a quick example, we'll use Parcel to bundle the SDK for a website. For any more information and questions on how to use Parcel, please head to their website.

  1. Create index.js.
import { init as initWebex } from 'webex';

// Initialize the SDK and make it available to the window
const webex = (window.webex = initWebex({
  credentials: {
    access_token: <your webex teams access token>
  }
}));

// Create a room with the title "My First Room"
webex.rooms
  .create({
    title: 'My First Room!'
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    console.error(error);
  });

// Filter for "My First Room" from the last 10 rooms
webex.rooms
  .list({
    max: 10
  })
  .then((rooms) => {
    // Destructure room properties for its id (aliased to roomId) and title
    const { id: roomId, title } = rooms.items.filter(
      room => room.title === 'My First Room!'
    )[0];

    // Post message "Hello World!" to "My First Room!"
    webex.messages.create({
      roomId,
      text: 'Hello World!'
    });

    // Log the the room name and the message we created
    return webex.messages
      .list({ roomId, max: 1 })
      // Destructure promised value to get the text property from the first item in items array
      .then(({ items: [{ text }] }) =>
        console.log(`Last message sent to room "${title}": ${text}`)
      );
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    console.error(error);
  });
  1. Create index.html .
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Webex SDK for Browsers</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <script src="./index.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>
  1. Run parcel index.html in your terminal.
  2. Go to http://localhost:1234 and open the developer console to see the output.

Still using webex/env or ciscospark/env?

Samples

Sample code can be found in packages/node_modules/samples. You can run them yourself with the following commands:

Note: This installs all of the SDK's tooling dependencies, so you'll need libgcrypt and (possibly) graphicsmagick. On a mac, you can install these with brew install graphicsmagick libgcrypt.

git clone git@github.com:webex/webex-js-sdk.git
cd webex-js-sdk
npm install
npm run samples:serve
Samples localhost Hosted
Samples code https://localhost:8000/ https://js.samples.s4d.io/
