We try to keep this as simple as possible.


You may use the language dropdown on the left to see code examples in languages we’re currently supporting.

The StaticBackend API is accessible via HTTPS requests. Some should use a multipart/form-data format, and others should use application/json.

The URL to access the API is based on the region you selected for your project. At this moment we support only a North America region.

For self-hosted version you can specify the URL of your instance in the region parameter.

All requests need authentication except the login and register endpoints.

The region can be:

  • na1: The North America production managed service
  • dev: Use the default localhost:8099 (used if you’re using the Docker instance)
  • https:/ For self-hosted, you can specify your own URL.
import { Backend } from "@staticbackend/js";
// use your public key and region ("dev" or "na1" for now)
const bkn = new Backend("public-token", "region");
import (

func init() {
  backend.PublicKey = os.Getenv("SB_PUB_KEY")
	backend.Region = os.Getenv("SB_REGION")
nothing to display


To authenticate a request you need to pass two HTTP headers.

SB-PUBLIC-KEY: Your StaticBackend public key. Find it in your project’s settings page.

Authorization: The current user’s autentication token obtained via a login or register call. Use the Bearer type, like this:

Authorization: Bearer your-token-here

Example request

Here’s an example of an authenticated request that adds a document to a Tasks repository.

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
     -H "SB-PUBLIC-KEY: your-pub-key" \
     -H "Authorization: Bearer user-token" \
     -X POST \
     -d '{"name": "task name", "done": false}' \
import { Backend } from "@staticbackend/js";
const bkn = new Backend("any-key-for-dev", "dev");

const authExample = async () => {
  const logres = await bkn.login("", "test123");
  if (!logres.ok) {
  // you'd keep this token somewhere easily accenssible
  // for this user (session/local storage for instance).
  const session_token = logres.content;
  const task = {
    name: "task name",
    done: false
  const result = await bkn.create(session_token, "tasks", task);
  if (!result.ok) {
package main
import (

func init() {
  backend.PublicKey = os.Getenv("SB_PUB_KEY")
  backend.Region = "dev"

type Task struct {
  ID string `json:"id"`
  AccountID string `json:"accountId"`
  Name string `json:"name"`
  Done bool `json:"done"`

func main() {
  // create a new user account
  token, err := backend.Login("", "my_pass")
  if err != nil {

  // our token can be used on all requests.
  task := Task{Name: "first task", Done: false}
  if err := backend.Create(token, "tasks", task, &task); err != nil {

  // task now has ID and AccountID filled with proper value

  var byIdTask Task
  if err := backend.GetByID(token, "tasks", task.ID, &byIdTask); err != nil {

  // task and byIdTask are identical
