  1. 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)

  2. 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.

  3. Folders for Functions, Values

    Add folders to the Functions and Values areas and then to make it 10x better by adding permissioning by folder so we can keep our clients from altering sensitive functions/values in specific folders.

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

  5. Use node modules in Functions

    As far as I understand currently it is not possible to use node/npm modules is Functions. Would be great to have it.

  6. 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.

  7. Increase of external dependencies size constraints

    The 10mb size constraint makes it impossible to deploy apps relying on Computer Vision or Machine Learning algorithms, like OpenCV.

  8. Support for arrayFilters in Functions

    Can we add arrayFilters and other array update capabilities that already exist in MQL? Its is difficult to update arrays, and very easy to update an array in MQL in node.js for example.

  9. Add Google Cloud as 3rd Party Service

    Please add Google Cloud as 3rd Party Service.

    I tried upload as a dependency but when running my function it complained about missing http2 module.

    Tried installing http2 as dependency but then hit into another error: "
    Cannot access member 'HTTP2HEADERSTATUS' of undefined"

    By the time I think it won't be possible to do that, unless Google Cloud is supported by MongoDb natively.

    The package I was trying is:
    const vision = require('@google-cloud/vision')

    Thanks!

  10. 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.

  11. Ability to set Values in Functions

    Ability from webhooks and functions to call context.values.set() and set a value that can then be referenced somewhere later. This could dramatically cut back on calls to outside APIs as we need data in multiple places so we end up having to make several calls.

  12. Global Variables for Functions

    Add global variables to Functions (so I don't have to pass around supposedly global variables to every function call).

    Add support for typescript :)))

  13. nodemailer Support

    Nodemailer is currently not supported because of the punycode dependency. Would be nice to send mails directly on the mongodb server.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  17. Realm UI Ability Changes to Github Repo

    Please add git integration for functions and 3rdParty HTTP services.
    Everything I make a change to a function and it is deployed, Realm tells me what the changes are but they are not pushed to my own Git repository

  18. 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.

  19. 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.)

  20. 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…
