Getting startededit

Install the APM agent for JavaScript as a dependency to your application:

npm install elastic-apm-js-base --save

Configure the agent:

import { init as initApm } from 'elastic-apm-js-base'
var apm = initApm({

  // Set required service name (allowed characters: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, -, _, and space)
  serviceName: '',

  // Set custom APM Server URL (default: http://localhost:8200)
  serverUrl: 'http://localhost:8200',

  // Set service version (required for sourcemap feature)
  serviceVersion: ''
})

Alternatively, you can use a script element and the elasticApm global object to load and initialize the agent:

<script src="elastic-apm-js-base/dist/bundles/elastic-apm-js-base.umd.min.js"></script>
<script>
  elasticApm.init({
    serviceName: '',
    serverUrl: 'http://localhost:8200',
  })
</script>
Note

Currently our minified JavaScript bundle is about 15KB (gzipped).
