    The Graph CLI (graph-cli)

    npm (scoped) Tests

    The Graph Command Line Interface

    As of today, the command line interface supports the following commands:

    • graph init — Creates a new subgraph project from an example or an existing contract.
    • graph create — Registers a subgraph name with a Graph Node.
    • graph remove — Unregisters a subgraph name with a Graph Node.
    • graph codegen — Generates AssemblyScript types for smart contract ABIs and the subgraph schema.
    • graph build — Compiles a subgraph to WebAssembly.
    • graph deploy — Deploys a subgraph to a Graph Node.
    • graph auth — Stores a Graph Node access token in the system's keychain.
    • graph local — Runs tests against a Graph Node test environment (using Ganache by default).
    • graph test — Downloads and runs the Matchstick rust binary in order to test a subgraph.
    • graph add - Adds a new datasource to the yaml file and writes the necessary changes to other files - schema.graphql, abi and mapping.

    How It Works

    The Graph CLI takes a subgraph manifest (defaults to subgraph.yaml) with references to:

    • A GraphQL schema,
    • Smart contract ABIs, and
    • Mappings written in AssemblyScript.

    It compiles the mappings to WebAssembly, builds a ready-to-use version of the subgraph saved to IPFS or a local directory for debugging, and deploys the subgraph to a Graph Node.


    The Graph CLI can be installed with npm or yarn:

    # NPM
    npm install -g @graphprotocol/graph-cli
    # Yarn
    yarn global add @graphprotocol/graph-cli

    On Linux

    libsecret is used for storing access tokens, so you may need to install it before getting started. Use one of the following commands depending on your distribution:

    • Debian/Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install libsecret-1-dev
    • Red Hat: sudo yum install libsecret-devel
    • Arch Linux: sudo pacman -S libsecret

    Getting Started

    The Graph CLI can be used with a local or self-hosted Graph Node or with the Hosted Service. To help you get going, there are quick start guides available for both.

    If you are ready to dive into the details of building a subgraph from scratch, there is a detailed walkthrough for that as well, along with API documentation for the AssemblyScript API.
