Load with RequireJS

The Jinaga package contains two bundles. One is for the server-side, and the other is for the client side. The client-side bundle is an AMD module, and is intended to be used with a module loader such as Require.JS.

If you prefer to use a packager like Webpack, then follow the Webpack step for JavaScript or for TypeScript instead.

First install Require.js.

npm i requirejs

Then you can write a client-side application using Jinaga. For example, this src/client/main.js can get you started:

define(function (require) {
    const { JinagaBrowser } = require("jinaga");
    const j = JinagaBrowser.create({
        httpEndpoint: "/jinaga"

        type: "MyApplication.Visit",
        date: new Date()

Notice the httpEndpoint setting. That connects the client to your server.

Pull it all together with a src/client/app.js:

    baseUrl: 'scripts',


To get your application and Jinaga into the browser, serve the all of the JavaScript files from your app. You can do this by adding routes to your src/server/routes.js:

app.get("/scripts/app.js", (req, res, next) => {
    res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname, "..", "client", "app.js"));

app.get("/scripts/main.js", (req, res, next) => {
    res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname, "..", "client", "main.js"));

app.get("/scripts/require.js", (req, res, next) => {
    res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname, "..", "..", "node_modules", "requirejs", "require.js"));

app.get("/scripts/jinaga.js", (req, res, next) => {
    res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname, "..", "..", "node_modules", "jinaga", "dist", "jinaga.js"));

Then you can load your application from src/server/index.html:

<script data-main="scripts/app.js" src="scripts/require.js"></script>
