gql

Similar to the default export from graphql-tag, this export can be used to form tagged template literals that are useful when building schema extensions. gql in graphile-utils differs from graphql-tag in a number of ways, most notably: it can use interpolation to generate dynamically named fields and types, and it can embed raw values using the embed helper.

embed

Used to wrap a value to be included in a gql AST, e.g. for use in GraphQL directives.

makeExtendSchemaPlugin

Docs: https://www.graphile.org/postgraphile/make-extend-schema-plugin/

Enables you to add additonal types or extend existing types within your Graphile Engine GraphQL schema.

const {
  makeExtendSchemaPlugin,
  gql,
} = require('graphile-utils');

const MySchemaExtensionPlugin =
  makeExtendSchemaPlugin(
    build => ({
      typeDefs: gql`...`,
      resolvers: ...
    })
  );

module.exports = MySchemaExtensionPlugin;

e.g.:

makeExtendSchemaPlugin(build => ({
  typeDefs: gql`
    type Random {
      float: Float!
      number(min: Int!, max: Int!): Int!
    }
    extend type Query {
      random: Random
    }
  `,
  resolvers: {
    Query: {
      random() {
        return {};
      },
    },
    Random: {
      float() {
        return Math.random();
      },
      number(_parent, { min, max }) {
        return min + Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min + 1));
      },
    },
  },
}));

makeAddInflectorsPlugin

Docs: https://www.graphile.org/postgraphile/make-add-inflectors-plugin/

If you don't like the default naming conventions that come with a Graphile Engine GraphQL schema then it's easy for you to override them using the inflector.

makeChangeNullabilityPlugin

Docs: https://www.graphile.org/postgraphile/make-change-nullability-plugin/

Use this plugin to override the nullability of fields in your GraphQL schema.

makeProcessSchemaPlugin

Docs: https://www.graphile.org/postgraphile/make-process-schema-plugin/

Enables you to process the schema after it's built, e.g. print it to a file, augment it with a third party library (e.g. graphql-shield), etc.

makeWrapResolversPlugin

Docs: https://www.graphile.org/postgraphile/make-wrap-resolvers-plugin/

Enables you to wrap the field resolvers in the generated GraphQL API, allowing you to take an action before or after the resolver, or even modify the resolver result.
