Developing a Node.js app using the Azure Cosmos DB SQL API

Azure Cosmos DB is a globally distributed multi-model database. One of the supported APIs is the SQL API, which provides a JSON document model with SQL querying and JavaScript procedural logic. This sample shows you how to use Azure Cosmos DB with the SQL API to store and access data from a Node.js application.

Running this sample

  • Before you can run this sample, you must have the following perquisites:
  1. Clone this repository using git clone git@github.com:Azure-Samples/azure-cosmos-db-sql-api-nodejs-getting-started.git cosmosdb

  2. Change directories to the repo using cd cosmosdb

  3. Next, substitute the endpoint and authorization key in config.js with your Azure Cosmos DB account's values.

     config.endpoint = "~your Azure Cosmos DB endpoint here~";
     config.primaryKey = "~your auth key here~";
    
  4. Run npm install in a terminal to install required npm modules

  5. Run node app.js in a terminal to start your start your node application.

About the code

The code included in this sample is intended to get you quickly started with a Node.js console application that connects to Azure Cosmos DB with the SQL API.
