Server side Node.js SDK

The 100ms Node.js SDK provides an easy-to-use wrapper around 100ms REST APIs to be used on the server side.

🔧 This is beta, APIs might change

Some examples on how to use the SDK can be found in the examples/nodejs folder on the source code.


Install the package with:

# via NPM: npm install --save @100mslive/server-sdk # via Yarn: yarn add @100mslive/server-sdk


The SDK needs to be configured with the Access Key and App Secret from the 100ms Dashboard's Developer Section. This can be done in 2 ways:

  1. Passing in the credentials when initializing the SDK.
import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK(accessKey, secret);


  1. Configuring Environment variables with the credentials,
HMS_ACCESS_KEY=accessKey123 // access key HMS_SECRET=secret456 // app secret

Then initializing the SDK like this:

import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK();

Usage with TypeScript

The SDK supports ts, esm and cjs completely. Here's how you can import the types from the SDK and use them.

import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK(); // create a room with options - let roomWithOptions: HMS.Room; const roomCreateOptions: HMS.RoomCreateOptions = { name, description, template_id, recording_info, region, }; roomWithOptions = await hms.rooms.create(roomCreateOptions);

Auth token

You can generate auth token for client SDKs to join a room.

import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK(); const tokenConfig = { roomId, role, userId }; console.log(await hms.auth.getAuthToken()); // with additional token options - const additionalTokenConfig = { roomId, role, userId, issuedAt, notValidBefore, validForSeconds, }; console.log(await hms.auth.getAuthToken(additionalTokenConfig));

Room APIs

Here's an example for creating and updating a room, using the room APIs in the SDK.

import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK(); // creating a room - const room = await hms.rooms.create(); // with room options - const roomCreateOptions = { name, description, template_id, recording_info, region, }; const roomWithOptions = await hms.rooms.create(roomCreateOptions); // updating a room - const roomUpdateOptions = { name }; const updatedRoom = await hms.rooms.update(, roomUpdateOptions); console.log(room, roomWithOptions, updatedRoom);

Active room APIs

Here's an example of listing the peers in an active room and then sending a broadcast message to that room, using the active room APIs.

import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK(); // list peers in active room - const peers = await hms.activeRooms.retrieveActivePeers(roomId); console.log(peers); // send broadcast message to all peers - await hms.activeRooms.sendMessage(roomId, { message: "test" });

Room code APIs

Here's an example of creating room codes for a room and then disabling one of them, using the room code APIs.

import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK(); // create room codes - const roomCodesForRoom = await hms.roomCodes.create(roomId); console.log(roomCodesForRoom); // disable a room code - const disabledRoomCode = await hms.roomCodes.enableOrDisable(roomCodesForRoom[0].code, false); console.log(disabledRoomCode);

Session APIs

Here's an example of listing all the sessions and sessions for a particular room using the session APIs.

import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK(); // list all sessions - const allSessionsIterable = hms.sessions.list(); for await (const session of allSessionsIterable) { console.log(session); if (!allSessionsIterable.isNextCached) { console.log("the next loop is gonna take some time"); } } // list sessions associated with a specific room - const sessionFilters = { room_id: "test_room_id", limit: 10, // specifies the max no. of objects in one page // this means `iterable.isNextCached` will be `false` once every 10 times }; const sessionsByRoomIterable = hms.sessions.list(sessionFilters); for await (const session of sessionsByRoomIterable) { console.log(session); }


Errors will follow the below interface, code is HTTP Status Code.

interface SDKException { code?: number; name: string; message: string; }


const hlsErr = { code: 404, name: "Not Found", message: "hls not running", };

Currently Supported Endpoints

  1. Rooms APIs
  2. Active Rooms APIs
  3. Room Codes APIs
  4. Sessions APIs

Make calls to unsupported 100ms APIs

Support for other endpoints are being added. If you want to consume them before it's available in the SDK, feel free to use the api property to make the API calls:

import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK(); const hmsObject = await hms.api.get(path, params); console.log(hmsObject);

Here's an example of listing the enabled room codes for a room:

import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK(); /** * cURL call: * `curl --location --request GET '<room_id>' --header 'Authorization: Bearer <management_token>'` */ const params = {}; // the request's body goes here // appropriate header configuration (incl. management token authorization) is handled internally const room = await hms.api.get(`rooms/${roomId}`, params); // `room` contains the room object, mapped from response's body console.log(room)

Management token

If you want to make 100ms API calls on your own without using the api property of SDK, you can generate just the management token to be used for authorization.

import HMS from "@100mslive/server-sdk"; const hms = new HMS.SDK(); console.log(await hms.auth.getManagementToken()); // with token options - const tokenConfig = { issuedAt, notValidBefore, validForSeconds, }; console.log(await hms.auth.getManagementToken(tokenConfig));
