Acrolinx JavaScript SDK

Build Matrix Quality Gate Status

This library is meant to be used to interact with the Acrolinx Platform API in JavaScript integrations. It does NOT offer an interface to work with the Acrolinx Sidebar (see Sidebar JavaScript SDK).

Get Started with Your Integration


Please contact Acrolinx SDK support for consulting and getting your integration certified. The tests in this SDK work with a test license on an internal Acrolinx URL. This license is only meant for demonstration and developing purposes. Once you finished your integration, you'll have to get a license for your integration from Acrolinx.

Acrolinx offers different other SDKs, and examples for developing integrations.

Before you start developing your own integration, you might benefit from looking into:

Start Developing


npm install @acrolinx/sdk

First Steps

Create instance of AcrolinxEndpoint to begin.

AcrolinxEndpoint offers a single entry point to the avail features provided by the SDK.

See Check.ts for more examples.

Example Code

import 'cross-fetch/polyfill'; // Use a fetch polyfill, when you target Node.js or IE11
import assert from 'assert';
import {AcrolinxEndpoint, DEVELOPMENT_SIGNATURE} from '@acrolinx/sdk';

const acrolinxEndpoint = new AcrolinxEndpoint({
  client: {version: '', signature: DEVELOPMENT_SIGNATURE},
  acrolinxUrl: 'https://test-ssl.acrolinx.com',

acrolinxEndpoint.getPlatformInformation().then(info => {
  assert.ok(info.server.name.length > 0);
  assert.ok(info.server.version.split('.').length >= 2 );
