This plugin allows you to define complexity of fields and limit the maximum complexity, depth, and breadth of queries.

`yarn add @pothos/plugin-complexity`

```
import ComplexityPlugin from '@pothos/plugin-complexity';
const builder = new SchemaBuilder({
plugins: [ComplexityPlugin],
});
```

To limit query complexity you can specify a maximum complexity either in the builder setup, or when building the schema:

```
const builder = new SchemaBuilder({
plugins: [ComplexityPlugin],
defaultComplexity: 1,
defaultListMultiplier: 10,
complexity: {
limit: {
complexity: 500,
depth: 10,
breadth: 50,
},
// or
limit: (ctx) => ({
complexity: 500,
depth: 10,
breadth: 50,
}),
},
});
// or
const schema = builder.toSchema({
complexity: {
limit: {
complexity: 500,
depth: 10,
breadth: 50,
},
},
});
```

- fieldComplexity: (optional,
`(args, ctx, field) => { complexity: number, multiplier: number} | number`

): default complexity calculation for fields.`defaultComplexity`

and`defaultListMultiplier`

will not be used if this is set. - defaultComplexity: (optional
`number`

) defines the default complexity for every field in the schema - defaultListMultiplier: (optional
`number`

) defines a default complexity multiplier for a list fields sub selections - limit: Defines limits for queries, passed the context object if
`limit`

is a function- complexity: defines the maximum complexity allowed for queries
- depth: defines the maximum depth of selections in a query
- breadth: defines the maximum total selections in a query

- complexityError: (optional
`function`

) defines the error to throw when the query complexity exceeds the limit. The function is passed the errorKind (depth, breadth, or complexity), the result (with the depth, breadth, complext, and max values), and a GraphQL`info`

object. It should return (or throw) an error, or a an error message as a string

Complexity is calculated before resolving root any root level fields (query, mutation, subscription), and is based purely on the shape of the query before execution begins.

The complexity of a query is the sum of the complexity of each selected field. If a field has sub-selections, the complexity of its sub-selections are multiplied by a fields multiplier, and then added to the fields own complexity. The default multiplier for fields is 1, and 10 for list fields. This multiplier is meant to the n+1 complexity of list fields.

The following query has a complexity of `131`

(assuming we are using the default options), a depth
of `3`

, and a breadth of `5`

:

```
query {
posts {
# complexity = 131 (posts + 10 * (2 + 11))
author {
# complexity = 2 (author + 1 * name)
name # complexity = 1, depth: 3
}
comments {
# complexity = 11 (comments + 10 * comment)
comment # complexity = 1, depth: 3
}
}
}
```

You can set a custom complexity value on any field:

```
builder.queryFields((t) => ({
posts: t.field({
type: [Post],
complexity: 20,
}),
}));
```

The complexity option can also set the multiplier for a field:

```
builder.queryFields((t) => ({
posts: t.field({
type: [Post],
complexity: { field: 5, multiplier: 20 },
}),
}));
```

A fields complexity can also be based on the fields arguments, or the context value:

```
builder.queryFields((t) => ({
posts: t.field({
type: [Post],
args: {
limit: t.arg.int(),
},
// base multiplier on how many posts are being requested
complexity: (args, ctx) => ({ field: 5, multiplier: args.limit ?? 5 }),
}),
}));
```

Returns the query complexity for a given GraphQL query.

```
const complexity = complexityFromQuery(query, {
schema: schema,
// Complexity can be calculated based on the context and arguments,
// so you may need to provide valid values for the context and arguments.
// Both are optional, and will default to empty objects.
context: {},
variables: {},
});
```
