Javascript Library and CLI for Hecate, the persistent, mutable data store focused on GeoJSON first interchange

General Usage


JS Library

yarn add '@mapbox/hecatejs'


yarn global add '@mapbox/hecatejs'


Note: if the username & password is not explicitly set, Hecate will fallback to checking for a HECATE_USERNAME & HECATE_PASSWORD environment variable. For the url parameter, be sure to include the protocol and (if necessary) port number.

JS Library

const Hecate = require('@mapbox/hecatejs');

const hecate = new Hecate({
    username: 'ingalls',
    password: 'yeaheh',
    url: 'https://example.com/hecate',


The CLI tool must be provided the URL to connect to for each subcommand. This can be accomplished by providing the URL to a local or remote Hecate server. Be sure to include the protocol and, for local connections, the port number.

The --url option must be provided for every subcommand but is omitted in this guide for clarity.

# Connecting to a remote hecate server
./cli.js --url 'https://example.com'
# Connecting to a local hecate server
./cli.js --url 'http://localhost:8000'
