graphql-codegen-typescript-mock-data

Description

GraphQL Codegen Plugin for building mock data based on the schema.

Installation

yarn add -D graphql-codegen-typescript-mock-data

Configuration

typesFile (string, defaultValue: null)

Defines the file path containing all GraphQL types. This file can also be generated through graphql-codegen

useTypeImports(boolean, defaultValue: false)

Will use import type {} rather than import {} when importing only types. This gives compatibility with TypeScript's "importsNotUsedAsValues": "error" option

addTypename (boolean, defaultValue: false)

Adds __typename property to mock data

enumsAsTypes (boolean, defaultValue: false)

Changes enums to TypeScript string union types

terminateCircularRelationships (boolean, defaultValue: false)

When enabled, prevents circular relationships from triggering infinite recursion. After the first resolution of a specific type in a particular call stack, subsequent resolutions will return an empty object cast to the correct type.

prefix (string, defaultValue: a for consonants & an for vowels)

The prefix to add to the mock function name. Cannot be empty since it will clash with the associated typescript definition from @graphql-codegen/typescript

listElementCount (number, defaultValue: 1)

How many elements should be generated for lists. For example, with listElementCount: 3 a schema field names: [String!]! would generate 3 names in each mock.

enumValues (string, defaultValue: change-case-all#pascalCase)

Changes the case of the enums. The format of the converter must be a valid module#method. You can also use keep to keep all GraphQL names as-is. Available case functions in change-case-all are camelCase, capitalCase, constantCase, dotCase, headerCase, noCase, paramCase, pascalCase, pathCase, sentenceCase, snakeCase, lowerCase, localeLowerCase, lowerCaseFirst, spongeCase, titleCase, upperCase, localeUpperCase and upperCaseFirst See more

typeNames (string, defaultValue: change-case-all#pascalCase)

Changes the case of types. The format of the converter must be a valid module#method. You can also use keep to keep all GraphQL names as-is. Available case functions in change-case-all are camelCase, capitalCase, constantCase, dotCase, headerCase, noCase, paramCase, pascalCase, pathCase, sentenceCase, snakeCase, lowerCase, localeLowerCase, lowerCaseFirst, spongeCase, titleCase, upperCase, localeUpperCase and upperCaseFirst See more

scalars ({ [Scalar: string]: GeneratorOptions }, defaultValue: undefined)

Allows you to define mappings for your custom scalars. Allows you to map any GraphQL Scalar to a casual embedded generator (string or function key) with optional arguments, or a or faker generator with optional arguments

For detailed configuration options, see GeneratorOptions documentation.

Examples using casual

plugins:
  - typescript-mock-data:
      scalars:
        Date: date # gets translated to casual.date()

With arguments

plugins:
  - typescript-mock-data:
      scalars:
        Date: # gets translated to casual.date('YYYY-MM-DD')
          generator: date
          arguments: 'YYYY-MM-DD'

Examples using faker

plugins:
  - typescript-mock-data:
      scalars:
        Date: date.past # gets translated to faker.date.past()

With arguments

plugins:
  - typescript-mock-data:
      scalars:
        Date: # gets translated to faker.date.past(10)
          generator: date.past
          arguments: 10

Custom value generator

plugins:
  - add: "import { arrayBufferGenerator } from '../generators';"
  - typescript-mock-data:
      scalars:
        ArrayBuffer: arrayBufferGenerator()

typesPrefix (string, defaultValue: '')

Useful if you have globally exported types under a certain namespace. e.g If the types file is something like this

declare namespace Api {
 type User {
  ...
 }
}

Setting the typesPrefix to Api. will create the following mock data

export const aUser = (overrides?: Partial<Api.User>): Api.User => {

enumsPrefix (string, defaultValue: '')

Similar to typesPrefix, but for enum types

declare namespace Api {
 enum Status {
  ...
 }
}

Setting the enumsPrefix to Api. will create the following mock data

export const aUser = (overrides?: Partial<User>): User => {
   status: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('status') ? overrides.status! : Api.Status.Online,
}

transformUnderscore (boolean, defaultValue: true)

When disabled, underscores will be retained for type names when the case is changed. It has no effect if typeNames is set to keep.

dynamicValues (boolean, defaultValue: false)

When enabled, values will be generated dynamically when the mock function is called rather than statically when the mock function is generated. The values are generated consistently from a casual seed that can be manually configured using the generated seedMocks(seed: number) function, as shown in this test.

useImplementingTypes (boolean, defaultValue: false)

When enabled, it will support the useImplementingTypes GraphQL codegen configuration.

  • When a GraphQL interface is used for a field, this flag will use the implementing types, instead of the interface itself.

defaultNullableToNull (boolean, defaultValue: false)

When enabled, it will set all nullable fields to null per default instead of generating a value.

fieldGeneration ({ [typeName: string]: { [fieldName: string]: GeneratorOptions } }, defaultValue: undefined)

This setting allows you to add specific generation to a field for a given type. For example if you have a type called User and a field called birthDate you can override any generated value there as follows:

plugins:
  - typescript-mock-data:
      scalars:
        Date: date.future
      fieldGeneration:
        User:
          birthDate: date.past

Note that even if birthDate is a scalar of Date type, its value will still be overridden.

If you want to use a specific generator for all fields of a given name, you can declare it under a property called _all:

plugins:
  - typescript-mock-data:
      scalars:
        Date: date.future
      fieldGeneration:
        _all:
          email: internet.email
        AdminUser:
          email: 'admin@email.com'

In the above example all resolvers with the name email will use the internet.email generator. However since we specified a specific email for AdminUser that will take precedence over the _all generated value.

For detailed configuration options, see GeneratorOptions documentation.

generateLibrary ('casual' | 'faker', defaultValue: 'casual')

Select a library to generate mock values. The default is casual, Other options include faker. casual dependents on Node API and cannot be executed in a browser. faker is useful when you want to use a mock function with the dynamicValues option enabled in the browser.

GeneratorOptions type

This type is used in scalars and fieldGeneration options.

            AWSTimestamp: unix_time # gets translated to casual.unix_time

With eslint-disable rule

codegen.yml

overwrite: true
schema: schema.graphql
generates:
  src/generated-types.ts:
    plugins:
      - 'typescript'
  src/mocks/generated-mocks.ts:
    plugins:
      - add:
          content: '/* eslint-disable @typescript-eslint/no-use-before-define,@typescript-eslint/no-unused-vars,no-prototype-builtins */'
      - typescript-mock-data:
          typesFile: '../generated-types.ts'
          enumValues: upper-case#upperCase
          typeNames: keep
          scalars:
            AWSTimestamp: unix_time # gets translated to casual.unix_time

Example of generated code

Given the following schema:

scalar AWSTimestamp

type Avatar {
  id: ID!
  url: String!
}

type User {
  id: ID!
  login: String!
  avatar: Avatar
  status: Status!
  updatedAt: AWSTimestamp
}

type Query {
  user: User!
}

input UpdateUserInput {
  id: ID!
  login: String
  avatar: Avatar
}

enum Status {
  ONLINE
  OFFLINE
}

type Mutation {
  updateUser(user: UpdateUserInput): User
}

The code generated will look like:

export const anAvatar = (overrides?: Partial<Avatar>): Avatar => {
  return {
    id: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('id') ? overrides.id! : '0550ff93-dd31-49b4-8c38-ff1cb68bdc38',
    url: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('url') ? overrides.url! : 'aliquid',
  };
};

export const anUpdateUserInput = (overrides?: Partial<UpdateUserInput>): UpdateUserInput => {
  return {
    id: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('id') ? overrides.id! : '1d6a9360-c92b-4660-8e5f-04155047bddc',
    login: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('login') ? overrides.login! : 'qui',
    avatar: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('avatar') ? overrides.avatar! : anAvatar(),
  };
};

export const aUser = (overrides?: Partial<User>): User => {
  return {
    id: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('id') ? overrides.id! : 'a5756f00-41a6-422a-8a7d-d13ee6a63750',
    login: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('login') ? overrides.login! : 'libero',
    avatar: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('avatar') ? overrides.avatar! : anAvatar(),
    status: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('status') ? overrides.status! : Status.Online,
    updatedAt: overrides && overrides.hasOwnProperty('updatedAt') ? overrides.updatedAt! : 1458071232,
  };
};

Usage in tests

Those helper functions can be used in our unit tests:

const user = aUser({ login: 'johndoe' });

// will create a user object with `login` property overridden to `johndoe`

Dealing with Timezone

If some properties use generated dates, the result could different depending on the timezone of your machine.

To force a timezone, you can set environment variable TZ:

TZ=UTC graphql-codegen

This will force the timezone to UTC, whatever the timezone of your machine or CI
