Microsoft Graph Toolkit

UI Components and Authentication Providers for Microsoft Graph

Documentation

The Microsoft Graph Toolkit is a collection of reusable, framework-agnostic components and authentication providers for accessing and working with Microsoft Graph. The components are fully functional right of out of the box, with built in providers that authenticate with and fetch data from Microsoft Graph.

Preview packages

In addition to the @next preview packages, we also ship packages under several other preview tags with various features in progress:

Tag Description
next Next release - updated on each commit to main
next.fluentui Next major release (v3) with components based on FluentUI web components

To install these packages, use the tag as the version in your npm i command. Ex: npm i @microsoft/mgt-element@next.fluentui. Make sure to install the same version for all mgt packages to avoid any conflicts. Keep in mind, these are features in preview and are not recommended for production use.

Components

You can explore components and samples with the playground powered by storybook.

The Toolkit currently includes the following components:

All web components are also available as React component - see @microsoft/mgt-react documentation.

Providers

Providers enable authentication and provide the implementation for acquiring access tokens on various platforms. The providers also expose a Microsoft Graph Client for calling the Microsoft Graph APIs. The components work best when used with a provider, but the providers can be used on their own as well.

You can also create your own providers by extending the IProvider abstract class.

Getting Started

The following guides are available to help you get started with the Toolkit:

You can use the components by referencing the loader directly (via unpkg), or installing the npm package

Use via mgt-loader:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/@microsoft/mgt/dist/bundle/mgt-loader.js"></script>

You can then start using the components in your html page. Here is a full working example with the Msal2 provider:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/@microsoft/mgt/dist/bundle/mgt-loader.js"></script>
<mgt-msal2-provider client-id="[CLIENT-ID]"></mgt-msal2-provider>
<mgt-login></mgt-login>

<!-- <script>
    // alternatively, you can set the provider in code and provide more options
    mgt.Providers.globalProvider = new mgt.Msal2Provider({clientId: '[CLIENT-ID]'});
</script> -->

NOTE: MSAL requires the page to be hosted in a web server for the authentication redirects. If you are just getting started and want to play around, the quickest way is to use something like live server in vscode.

Use via NPM:

The benefits of using MGT through NPM is that you have full control of the bundling process and you can bundle only the code you need for your site. First, add the npm package:

npm install @microsoft/mgt

Now you can reference all components and providers at the page you are using:

<script type="module" src="node_modules/@microsoft/mgt/dist/es6/index.js"></script>

<mgt-msal2-provider client-id="[CLIENT-ID]"></mgt-msal2-provider>

<mgt-login></mgt-login>
<mgt-agenda></mgt-agenda>

Running the samples

Some of our samples are coupled to use the locally built mgt packages instead of the published version from npm. Because of this, it's helpful to build the monorepo before attempting to run any of the samples.

# Starting at the root
yarn
yarn build
# Now you can run the React sample using the local packages
cd ./samples/react-app/
yarn start

This also means that running the samples in isolation may fail if there are breaking changes between the published version of mgt and the local copy. To workaround this, use samples that are known to be compatible with a specific release by checking out the appropriate branch or tag first.
