npm install @ethersphere/bee-js --save

After that you need to import the Bee class and create a bee instance connecting to your Bee node (here we assume it runs on localhost on default port). Be aware, if you will pass invalid URL the constructor will throw an exception!

import { Bee } from "@ethersphere/bee-js"

const bee = new Bee('http://localhost:1633')

That’s it! now you can use the bee object.

Run your own Bee node

You can find out more about running Bee node in the Bee docs

<script src=""></script>
const bee = new BeeJs.Bee('...')
