Getting Started

Getting started with @motor-js/engine

Install via npm

The fastest way to get started is to install via npm.

npm i @motor-js/engine


Start by wrapping your application with the Motor component, at the root of your project. This handles connection to the Qlik engine and is needed for any of the hooks to work.

You can either set the configuration to your Qlik site directly in this component, or pass the engine object (useful if you are handling custom authentication and connection).

// 1. Import the Motor component
import { Motor } from @motor-js/engine
function App() {
return (
// 2. Use at the root of your project
host: "",
secure: true,
port: 433,
prefix: "",
appId: 'myAwesomeApp',
<App />

Next, import the hooks or contexts into your project and you are good to go. In the below example we are extracting data from the useList hook.

import { useList } from "@motor-js/engine"
const Filter = () => {
const dimension = ['Country'];
const {
} = useList({
return (

Usage with Qlik Sense Cloud

If you are connecting to a Qlik cloud SAAS instance, your configuration will look slightly different. We need to set the qcs entry to true and also add the web integration id, generated in your Qlik site.

import { Motor }from '@motor-js/core'
host: '',
secure: true,
port: null,
prefix: '',
appId: '39e218c1-42ee-4f38-9451-1b8f850505d5',
webIntId: '...',
qcs: true,
// ...
