vSphere SDK for JavaScript

The vSphere SDK for JavaScript enables programmatic access to various vSphere-related Web Service APIs and supports both browser and Node.js environments. It provides basic usage samples for the following product APIs:

  • ESXi 5.5+
  • Site Recovery Manager 6.0
  • vCenter Server 5.5+
  • vCenter Single Sign-On Server 6.0
  • vSphere Update Manager 6.5

The SDK relies on the target service metadata for API generation and type validation. It provides optimal performance by using smart caching and on-demand interface generation.

The implementation is version-agnostic but the provided API reference and TypeScript definitions are fully compatible only with the latest product releases.

The SDK has been used by a number of VMware products including the official ESXi Client.
