    Getting Started

    Installation

    Start by installing the plugin package, which includes everything you need:

    yarn add -D @graphql-eslint/eslint-plugin

    Or, with NPM:

    npm install --save-dev @graphql-eslint/eslint-plugin

    Make sure you have graphql dependency in your project.

    Configuration

    To get started, define an override in your ESLint config to apply this plugin to .graphql files. Add the rules you want applied.

    🚨 Important! This step is necessary even if you are declaring operations and/or schema in code files.

    {
      "overrides": [
        {
          "files": ["*.graphql"],
          "parser": "@graphql-eslint/eslint-plugin",
          "plugins": ["@graphql-eslint"],
          "rules": {
            "@graphql-eslint/known-type-names": "error"
          }
        }
      ]
    }

    If your GraphQL definitions are defined only in .graphql files, and you're only using rules that apply to individual files, you should be good to go 👍. If you would like use a remote schema or use rules that apply across the entire collection of definitions at once, see here.

    Apply this plugin to GraphQL definitions defined in code files

    If you are defining GraphQL schema or GraphQL operations in code files, you'll want to define an additional override to extend the functionality of this plugin to the schema and operations in those files.

    {
      "overrides": [
    +   {
    +     "files": ["*.js"],
    +     "processor": "@graphql-eslint/graphql"
    +   },
        {
          "files": ["*.graphql"],
          "parser": "@graphql-eslint/eslint-plugin",
          "plugins": ["@graphql-eslint"],
          "rules": {
            "@graphql-eslint/known-type-names": "error"
          }
        }
      ]
    }

    Under the hood, specifying the @graphql-eslint/graphql processor for code files will cause graphql-eslint/graphql to extract the schema and operation definitions from these files into virtual GraphQL documents with .graphql extensions. This will allow the overrides you've defined for .graphql files, via "files": ["*.graphql"], to get applied to the definitions defined in your code files.

    Extended linting rules with GraphQL Schema

    Some rules require an understanding of the entire schema at once. For example, no-unreachable-types checks that all types are reachable by root-level fields.

    To use these rules, you'll need to tell ESLint how to identify the entire set of schema definitions.

    If you are using graphql-config, you are good to go. graphql-eslint integrates with it automatically and will use it to load your schema!

    Alternatively, you can define parserOptions.schema in the *.graphql override in your ESLint config.

    The parser allows you to specify a json file / graphql files(s) / url / raw string to locate your schema (We are using graphql-tools to do that). Just add parserOptions.schema to your configuration file:

    {
      "files": ["*.graphql"],
      "parser": "@graphql-eslint/eslint-plugin",
      "plugins": ["@graphql-eslint"],
      "rules": {
        "@graphql-eslint/no-unreachable-types": "error"
      },
    + "parserOptions": {
    +   "schema": "./schema.graphql"
    + }
    }

    You can find a complete documentation of the parserOptions here.

    Some rules require type information to operate, it's marked in the docs for each rule!

    Extended linting rules with siblings operations

    While implementing this tool, we had to find solutions for a better integration of the GraphQL ecosystem and ESLint core.

    GraphQL operations can be distributed across many files, while ESLint operates on one file at a time. If you are using GraphQL fragments in separate files, some rules might yield incorrect results, due the missing information.

    To workaround that, we allow you to provide additional information on your GraphQL operations, making it available for rules while doing the actual linting.

    To provide that, we are using graphql-tools loaders to load your sibling operations and fragments, just specify a glob expression(s) that points to your code/.graphql files:

    {
      "files": ["*.graphql"],
      "parser": "@graphql-eslint/eslint-plugin",
      "plugins": ["@graphql-eslint"],
      "rules": {
        "@graphql-eslint/unique-operation-name": "error"
      },
      "parserOptions": {
    +   "operations": "./src/**/*.graphql",
        "schema": "./schema.graphql"
      }
    }

    VSCode Integration

    Use ESLint VSCode extension to integrate ESLint into VSCode.

    For syntax highlighting you need a GraphQL extension (which may potentially have its own linting), for example GraphQL (by GraphQL Foundation).

    Disabling Rules

    The graphql-eslint parser looks for GraphQL comments syntax (marked with #) and will send it to ESLint as directives. That means, you can use ESLint directives syntax to hint ESLint, just like in any other type of files.

    To disable ESLint for a specific line, you can do:

    # eslint-disable-next-line
    type Query {
      foo: String!
    }

    You can also specify specific rules to disable, apply it over the entire file, eslint-disable-next-line or current eslint-disable-line.

    You can find a list of ESLint directives here.

    Available Rules

    You can find a complete list of all available rules here.

    Deprecated Rules

    See docs/deprecated-rules.md.

    Available Configs

    Name Description
    schema-recommended enables recommended rules for schema (SDL) development
    schema-all enables all rules for schema (SDL) development, except for those that require parserOptions.operations option
    operations-recommended enables recommended rules for consuming GraphQL (operations) development
    operations-all enables all rules for consuming GraphQL (operations) development
    relay enables rules from Relay specification for schema (SDL) development

    If you are in a project that develops the GraphQL schema, you'll need schema rules.

    If you are in a project that develops GraphQL operations (query/mutation/subscription), you'll need operations rules.

    If you are in a monorepo project, you probably need both sets of rules, see example of configuration.

    Config usage

    For example, to enable the schema-recommended config, enable it in your .eslintrc file with the extends option:

    All configs under the hood set parser as @graphql-eslint/eslint-plugin and add @graphql-eslint to plugins array, so you don't need to specify them.

    {
      "overrides": [
        {
          "files": ["*.js"],
          "processor": "@graphql-eslint/graphql"
        },
        {
          "files": ["*.graphql"],
    -     "parser": "@graphql-eslint/eslint-plugin",
    -     "plugins": ["@graphql-eslint"],
    +     "extends": "plugin:@graphql-eslint/schema-recommended"
        }
      ]
    }

    prettier rule

    eslint-plugin-prettier supports .graphql files, and v4.1.0 supports graphql blocks even better. You need to do the following:

    module.exports = {
      overrides: [
        {
          files: ['*.js'],
          processor: '@graphql-eslint/graphql',
          extends: ['plugin:prettier/recommended']
        },
        {
          files: ['*.graphql'],
          parser: '@graphql-eslint/eslint-plugin',
          plugins: ['@graphql-eslint'],
          rules: {
            'prettier/prettier': 'error'
          }
        }
      ]
    }

    You can take examples/prettier as example.
