@inrupt/solid-client API Documentation#

@inrupt/solid-client is a JavaScript library for accessing data and managing permissions on data stored in Solid Pods. It provides an abstraction layer on top of both Solid and Resource Description Framework (RDF) principles and is compatible with the RDF/JS specification. You can use solid-client in Node.js using either CommonJS or ESM modules, and in the browser with a bundler like Webpack, Rollup, or Parcel.

It is part of a family open source JavaScript libraries designed to support developers building Solid applications.


For the latest stable version of solid-client:

npm install @inrupt/solid-client


See the release notes.

Supported environments#

Our JavaScript Client Libraries use relatively modern JavaScript, aligned with the ES2018 Specification features, we ship both ESM and CommonJS, with type definitions for TypeScript alongside.

This means that out of the box, we only support environments (browsers or runtimes) that were released after mid-2018, if you wish to target other (older) environments, then you will need to cross-compile our SDKs via the use of Babel, webpack, SWC, or similar.

If you need support for Internet Explorer, it is recommended to pass them through a tool like Babel, and to add polyfills for e.g. Map, Set, Promise, Headers, Array.prototype.includes, Object.entries and String.prototype.endsWith.

Node.js Support#

Our JavaScript Client Libraries track Node.js LTS releases, and support 18.x and 20.x.
