🔌 Usage & Activity Feed setup

Setup StreamApp component

In order to use Stream React Components in your application, you first need to initialize the StreamApp component. StreamApp holds your application config and acts as a service/data provider.

  {/* everything from your application interacting with Stream should be nested here */}
  1. API_KEY your Stream application API_KEY
  2. API_ID your Stream application ID
  3. USER_ID current user's ID
  4. TOKEN the authentication token for current user
  5. ANALYTICS_TOKEN [optional] the Analytics auth token

You can find your API_KEY and APP_ID on Stream's dashboard.

Generating user token

The authentication user token cannot be generated client-side (that would require sharing your API secret). You should provision a user token as part of the sign-up / login flow to your application from your backend.

const client = stream.connect(API_KEY, API_SECRET);
const userToken = client.createUserToken(userId);

Generating analytics token

React components have analytics instrumentation built-in, this simplifies the integration with Stream. In order to enable analytics tracking, you need to initialize StreamApp with a valid analytics token. You can generate this server-side as well.

const client = stream.connect(API_KEY, API_SECRET);
const analyticsToken = client.getAnalyticsToken();
