  1. Upgrade Node.js version (from v10 to v14/v16)

    It would be great if you can upgrade the version of Node.js used in Realm Functions (currently in version 10.18.1). Version 10.x, which was an LTS, has been unmaintained for many years. The end of life of Node v12 is scheduled for April 2022.

    Is it possible to upgrade Node to version 14 (at least)? Another feature would be to let us choose the Node.js runtime version directly from Realm UI or the CLI (it's possible for example with AWS Lambda).

    Working with Node v10 is really difficult for us since most of the dependencies are not compatible with it.

  2. realm function limits should be configurable

    realm function limits should be configurable or increased, as it hinders capabilities for memory heavy tasks like encryption/decoding
    eg sha256 encryption using crypto can only perform upto 10000 iterarations while industry standards expects atleast a lakh iterations

  3. Bracket Pair Colorizer

    It would be awesome if there could be an implementation of something like VSCode's Bracket Pair Colorizer.
    It may spend a lot of time and attention to pair the start and ending of functions without a visual aid.
    Thank you very much for the consideration.

  4. python

    Python support would be great to allow us to have a single code base

  5. Traverse folders in Realm hosting service.

    Using Realm hosting to store static resources. Need a package within Realm Functions to traverse folders and build an index of content in all hosting folders. Currently can only retreive root folder content.

  7. Support TypeScript

    I know this is probably a very complex feature, but I'd like to work with TypeScript when writing functions.
    Some stretch goals:
    - full integration with VSCode so we no longer have to use the web editor
    - add support for testing functions (through CI/CD)

  8. Containerized Functions + Logging + Dependencies Improvements

    I believe most of the below asks would be resolved if you allowed containerized functions to be uploaded and we can have the correct execution environment.
    Allow larger function sizes
    Allow more larger dependency sizes
    Allow 256kb size per log entry
    Allow Unlimited log entries per function execution
    Output formatted logs, don't want to scroll right forever
    Add refresh button for logs
    Log arguments for triggered function automatically
    Don't truncate logs
    Allow logs to be streamed so that you don't need to refresh logs
    Increase execution time to 15-30 minutes
    Allow dependencies to be imported outside of function definition
    Allow…

  9. logs

    When filtering logs I should be able to enter a date/time in the near future for the To date in order to produce a shareable URL in the address bar that will include log lines in the range from some specified date in the past until "now" without having to precisely enter what "now" is.

  10. More Mongo DB actions parity with the Node driver

    The actions available via https://docs.mongodb.com/realm/mongodb/actions/ do not match the API exposed by the Node driver.

    For example, the https://mongodb.github.io/node-mongodb-native/4.0/classes/collection.html#createindex function would be extremely useful for our use case, I can't see any method for programmatically creating indexes via Realm.

    For example, the https://mongodb.github.io/node-mongodb-native/4.0/classes/collection.html#bulkwrite function returns a completely different type from https://docs.mongodb.com/realm/mongodb/actions/collection.bulkWrite/, making unit testing our realm functions locally extremely difficult.

    I'm unsure what reasons there are for this disparity (especially when I can use the mongo node driver to connect locally to an Atlas cluster, but I can't use any of these methods in our deployed application in Realm).

  11. Add line number to function call error messages

    A simple line number of where a function fails would be incredibly useful. And a function name would be important too for when a function calls another function.

  12. Retry function

    We use Realm functions to update related documents in our Mongo Atlas cluster. Sometimes, the DB connection (via context.services.get("mongodb-atlas")) fails. We should... be able to retry establishing a connection? (Or even easier, just configure a retry for the Realm Function itself.)

  13. External Dependencies Should Be Per Function

    10mb compressed size constraint is very limited. Plus, dependencies are not siloed per function. Either uncap the dependencies constraint or allow dependencies to be uploaded per function, still with a higher compressed size constraint (preferably at least 100mb to support large dependencies such as for image processing).

    I think the thought was "functions are meant to be short running operations" but I think that is a huge assumption. Why not offer options for powerful compute that respond to database change events. Sure you may need to just update something else in the db, and that may be sufficient for some…

  14. Support mongoose

    Add mongoose to Functions and a place to store mongoose Schemas,

    Also, Realm UI Schema and authorization documentations are not very complete or clear

  15. Function with Large Memory for Image Processing

    Would be great to set a Scheduled Trigger to process all my database images and store then in S3.

    1— Would need to have memory settings for a function, to specify like 2GB or 4GB.

    2— And ultimately, add Sharp library https://github.com/lovell/sharp because it has install scripts. AFAIK I couldn't install on a local computer then upload to the Realm Dependencies (not tested yet).

    That would create a great dev experience, after a user uploads some images the triggers take over and process all the required image sizes and stores on S3 for delivery over CloudFront.

    Of course, the best…

  16. Increase of Functions timeout

    Timeout is set to 90 seconds. This value is a fixed setting and is too low for extensive ingestion functions.

    A default value of 600 seconds would be helpful.

    Even better would be the ability to set an individual timeout value per application in the settings.

  17. function sandbox

    It would be great to have a function sandbox area, where you can write and called previously used functions (saved like notepad++ does) without having to create the function and commit it.

    This would be for trying thing out or performing quick tasks for which you don't want to go through all the hassle of formally creating a function.

  18. Allow upload of large files through Realm Functions

    Right now we have a 30s input timeout on Realm Functions. We can't upload large files.

    Users in my case uploads large images of 20Mbs, and videos ~50Mb.

    Would be great to see this change, right now we are unable to use Realm for that.

    Also, AWS S3 service has a 4MB limitation as noted here, but not sure, I was able to upload a 7.8MB file https://docs.mongodb.com/realm/services/aws

  19. Postman snippet generator

    Working with the http library has been the most frustrating part of working with Realm functions. Postman has an awesome "generate code snippet" feature, with lots of options like Axios and Unirest. It would great if I didn't have to manually convert from cURL and could just copy some code from Postman into my Realm function.

  20. Add 'Previously Used' column to table of functions

    Add a column indicating when each function was previously used in the functions screen.

    It would also be helpful to have some basic stats about each functions usage, like total usage count, used in last 30 days, and total usage as a % of all function calls.

    This would help you to find which functions are used most to make them as efficient as possible, and to remove ones that aren't used much.
