At compile time,
elm-graphql takes GraphQL schema and named queries in a
.graphql file and generates corresponding Elm types. The schema is obtained by introspection
of a live GraphQL server.
elm-graphql is simply for making queries, it is not a framework like Relay but it could be the foundation other abstractions in the future.
npm install -g elm-graphql
Configure the GraphQL endpoint URL. This will be saved in
elm graphql --init URL
Now you can generate an Elm module for each .graphql file:
