GraphQL Query Builder

A simple helper function to generate GraphQL queries using plain JavaScript Objects (JSON).

Usage

Install

npm install gql-query-builder --save or yarn add gql-query-builder

Getting Started

You can also import query or mutation or subscription individually:

import  { query, mutation, subscription } from 'gql-query-builder'

query(options: object)
mutation(options: object)
subscription(options: object)

API

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql.query(options: object, adapter?: MyCustomQueryAdapter,config?: object)
const mutation = gql.mutation(options: object, adapter?: MyCustomQueryAdapter)
const subscription = gql.subscription(options: object, adapter?: MyCustomSubscriptionAdapter)

Options

options is { operation, fields, variables } or an array of options

Name Description Type Required Example
operation Name of operation to be executed on server String Yes getThoughts, createThought
fields Selection of fields Array No ['id', 'name', 'thought']

['id', 'name', 'thought', { user: ['id', 'email'] }]
variables Variables sent to the operation Object No { key: value } eg: { id: 1 }

{ key: { value: value, required: true, type: GQL type, list: true,name: argument name } eg:
{ email: { value: "[email protected]", required: true }, password: { value: "123456", required: true }, secondaryEmails: { value: [], required: false, type: 'String', list: true,name: secondaryEmail } }

config

Name Description Type Required Example
operationName Name of operation to be sent to the server String No getThoughts, createThought

Adapter

An optional second argument adapter is a typescript/javascript class that implements src/adapters/IQueryAdapter or src/adapters/IMutationAdapter.

If adapter is undefined then src/adapters/DefaultQueryAdapter or src/adapters/DefaultMutationAdapter is used.

Examples

Query:

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql.query({
  operation: 'thoughts',
  fields: ['id', 'name', 'thought']
})

console.log(query)

// Output
query {
  thoughts {
    id,
    name,
    thought
  }
}

Query (with variables):

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql.query({
  operation: 'thought',
  variables: { id: 1 },
  fields: ['id', 'name', 'thought']
})

console.log(query)

// Output
query ($id: Int) {
  thought (id: $id) {
    id, name, thought
  }
}

// Variables
{ "id": 1 }

Query (with nested fields selection)

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql({
  operation: 'orders',
  fields: [
    'id',
    'amount',
    {
     user: [
        'id',
        'name',
        'email',
        {
          address: [
            'city',
            'country'
          ]
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
})

console.log(query)

// Output
query {
  orders  {
    id,
    amount,
    user {
      id,
      name,
      email,
      address {
        city,
        country
      }
    }
  }
}

Query (with required variables):

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql.query({
  operation: 'userLogin',
  variables: {
    email: { value: '[email protected]', required: true },
    password: { value: '123456', required: true }
  },
  fields: ['userId', 'token']
})

console.log(query)

// Output
query ($email: String!, $password: String!) {
  userLogin (email: $email, password: $password) {
    userId, token
  }
}

// Variables
{
  email: "[email protected]",
  password: "123456"
}

Query (with custom argument name):

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql.query([{
  operation: "someoperation",
  fields: [{
    operation: "nestedoperation",
    fields: ["field1"],
    variables: {
      id2: {
        name: "id",
        type: "ID",
        value: 123,
      },
    },
  }, ],
  variables: {
    id1: {
      name: "id",
      type: "ID",
      value: 456,
    },
  },
}, ]);

console.log(query)

// Output
query($id2: ID, $id1: ID) {
  someoperation(id: $id1) {
    nestedoperation(id: $id2) {
      field1
    }
  }
}

// Variables
{
  "id1": 1,
  "id2": 1
}

Query (with operation name):

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql.query({
  operation: 'userLogin',
  fields: ['userId', 'token']
}, null, {
  operationName: 'someoperation'
})

console.log(query)

// Output
query someoperation {
  userLogin {
    userId
    token
  }
}

Query (with empty fields):

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql.query([{
  operation: "getFilteredUsersCount",
},
  {
    operation: "getAllUsersCount",
    fields: []
  },
  operation: "getFilteredUsers",
  fields: [{
  count: [],
}, ],
]);

console.log(query)

// Output
query {
  getFilteredUsersCount
  getAllUsersCount
  getFilteredUsers {
    count
  }
}

Query (with adapter defined):

For example, to inject SomethingIDidInMyAdapter in the operationWrapperTemplate method.

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'
import MyQueryAdapter from 'where/adapters/live/MyQueryAdapter'

const query = gql.query({
  operation: 'thoughts',
  fields: ['id', 'name', 'thought']
}, MyQueryAdapter)

console.log(query)

// Output
query SomethingIDidInMyAdapter {
  thoughts {
    id,
    name,
    thought
  }
}

Take a peek at DefaultQueryAdapter to get an understanding of how to make a new adapter.

Mutation:

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql.mutation({
  operation: 'thoughtCreate',
  variables: {
    name: 'Tyrion Lannister',
    thought: 'I drink and I know things.'
  },
  fields: ['id']
})

console.log(query)

// Output
mutation ($name: String, $thought: String) {
  thoughtCreate (name: $name, thought: $thought) {
    id
  }
}

// Variables
{
  "name": "Tyrion Lannister",
  "thought": "I drink and I know things."
}

Mutation (with required variables):

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql.mutation({
  operation: 'userSignup',
  variables: {
    name: { value: 'Jon Doe' },
    email: { value: '[email protected]', required: true },
    password: { value: '123456', required: true }
  },
  fields: ['userId']
})

console.log(query)

// Output

  userSignup (name: $name, email: $email, password: $password) {
    userId
  }
}

// Variables
{
  name: "Jon Doe",
  email: "[email protected]",
  password: "123456"
}

import * as gql from 'gql-query-builder'

const query = gql.mutation({
  operation: "userPhoneNumber",
  variables: {
    phone: {
      value: { prefix: "+91", number: "9876543210" },
      type: "PhoneNumber",
