The current user

Once the DrupalGap bootstrap is complete, the current user will be available to your app's source code:

// Grab the current user account.
var user = jDrupal.currentUser();
var msg = user.isAuthenticated() ?
  'Hello ' + user.getAccountName() :
  'Hello World';

It's important to note that the jDrupal.currentUser() function will not be available within the settings.js file, because the app hasn't bootsrapped itself by that time.

Load a User Account

jDrupal.userLoad(456).then(function(account) {
  var msg = 'Loaded : ' + account.getAccountName();

Save a User Account

Save a New User


Update an Existing User


Register a New User

This will become available in Drupal 8.3.0



jDrupal.userLogin('bob', 'secret').then(function() {
  console.log('Logged in!');


jDrupal.userLogout().then(function() {
  console.log('Logged out!');
