Node-Quickbase - v4.3.0


npm license npm version npm downloads

A lightweight, promise based Quickbase API.

Written in TypeScript, targets Nodejs and the Browser

This library targets the new RESTful JSON-based API, not the old XML-based API. If you want to use the old XML-based API, then please use v2.x of this library.

IE 11 Users, if you are receiving this error:
XMLHttpRequest: Network Error 0x80070005, Access is denied.

This is not a limitation of the library, just how Quickbase's new API works.
In order to use the new RESTful JSON-based API in Internet Explorer, you must
change a security setting:

- Go to Internet Options -> Security -> Custom Level
- Scroll down to and find the "Miscellaneous" section
- Ensure "Access data sources across domains" is set to "Enable"
- Click "OK", "Yes", "OK"


# Install
$ npm install quickbase

# Also available via Bower
$ bower install quickbase

Server-Side Example

import { QuickBase } from 'quickbase';

const quickbase = new QuickBase({
realm: 'www',
userToken: 'xxxxxx_xxx_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'
// Use tempToken if utilizing an authentication token sent
// up from client-side code. If possible, this is preferred.
// tempToken: 'xxxxxx_xxx_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx',
// appToken: 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'

(async () => {
try {
const results = await quickbase.getApp({
appId: 'xxxxxxxxx'


Client-Side Example

Import QuickBase by loading quickbase.browserify.min.js

var quickbase = new QuickBase({
realm: 'www',
appToken: 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'

// Using a Temporary Token
dbid: 'xxxxxxxxx'
return quickbase.getApp({
appId: 'xxxxxxxxx'


Server-side, set the environment variable DEBUG to quickbase:*

In the browser, open the dev console and enter: window.localStorage.debug = 'quickbase:*'
