Introducing the Textile Javascript Client

We’re proud to introduce the Textile Javascript Client, a brand new open source client library that lets developers harness the power of Textile in desktop and browser-based web-apps. We mentioned @textile/js-http-client briefly in a recent post about Textile on desktop, but since then, the library has received some major updates, and has already been downloaded over 500 times! New features include a full re-write in Typescript, a bunch of new, fully-isomorphic APIs, plus some extremely powerful streaming endpoints (featuring ReadableStreams in both Nodejs and the browser). We’ve also reduced the library size and made it easier to install on Nodejs (requires fewer crypto dependencies), and added webpack support for easy deploying to browser apps (plus it works great with React and other web frameworks). Available on npm now!
