GraphQL ISO Date

npm version Build Status codecov

GraphQL ISO Date is a set of RFC 3339 compliant date/time scalar types to be used with graphQL.js.

RFC 3339 "defines a date and time format for use in Internet protocols that is a profile of the ISO 8601 standard for representation of dates and times using the Gregorian calendar."

Date and Time on the Internet: Timestamps, July 2002.

A basic understanding of GraphQL and of the graphQL.js implementation is needed to provide context for this library.

This library contains the following scalars:

  • Date: A date string, such as 2007-12-03.
  • Time: A time string at UTC, such as 10:15:30Z
  • DateTime: A date-time string at UTC, such as 2007-12-03T10:15:30Z.

Getting started

Install graphql-iso-date using yarn

yarn add graphql-iso-date

Or using npm

npm install --save graphql-iso-date

GraphQL ISO Date exposes 3 different date/time scalars that can be used in combination with graphQL.js. Let's build a simple schema using the scalars included in this library and execute a query:

import {
  graphql,
  GraphQLObjectType,
  GraphQLSchema,
} from 'graphql';
 
import {
  GraphQLDate,
  GraphQLTime,
  GraphQLDateTime
} from 'graphql-iso-date';
 
const schema = new GraphQLSchema({
  query: new GraphQLObjectType({
    name: 'Query',
    fields: {
      birthdate: {
        type: GraphQLDate,
        //resolver can take a Date or date string.
        resolve: () => new Date(1991, 11, 24)
      },
      openingNYSE: {
        type: GraphQLTime,
        //resolver can take a Date or time string.
        resolve: () => new Date(Date.UTC(2017, 0, 10, 14, 30))
      },
      instant: {
        type: GraphQLDateTime,
        // resolver can take Date, date-time string or Unix timestamp (number).
        resolve: () => new Date(Date.UTC(2017, 0, 10, 21, 33, 15, 233))
      }
    }
  })
});
 
const query = `
  {
    birthdate
    openingNYSE
    instant
  }
`;
 
graphql(schema, query).then(result => {
 
    // Prints
    // {
    //   data: {
    //     birthdate: '1991-12-24',
    //     openingNYSE: '14:30:00.000Z',
    //     instant: '2017-01-10T21:33:15.233Z'
    //   }
    // }
    console.log(result);
});

Scalars

This section provides a detailed description of each of the scalars.

A reference is made to coercion in the description below. For further clarification on the meaning of this term, please refer to the GraphQL spec.

Date

A date string, such as 2007-12-03, compliant with the full-date format outlined in section 5.6 of the RFC 3339 profile of the ISO 8601 standard for representation of dates and times using the Gregorian calendar.

This scalar is a description of the date, as used for birthdays for example. It cannot represent an instant on the time-line.

Result Coercion

Javascript Date instances are coerced to an RFC 3339 compliant date string. Invalid Date instances raise a field error.

Input Coercion

When expected as an input type, only RFC 3339 compliant date strings are accepted. All other input values raise a query error indicating an incorrect type.

Time

A time string at UTC, such as 10:15:30Z, compliant with the full-time format outlined in section 5.6 of the RFC 3339 profile of the ISO 8601 standard for representation of dates and times using the Gregorian calendar.

This scalar is a description of a time instant such as the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange for example. It cannot represent an exact instant on the time-line.

This scalar ignores leap seconds (thereby assuming that a minute constitutes of 59 seconds), in this respect it diverges from the RFC 3339 profile.

Where an RFC 3339 compliant time string has a time-zone other than UTC, it is shifted to UTC. For example, the time string "14:10:20+01:00" is shifted to "13:10:20Z".

Result Coercion

Javascript Date instances are coerced to an RFC 3339 compliant time string by extracting the UTC time part. Invalid Date instances raise a field error.

Input Coercion

When expected as an input type, only RFC 3339 compliant time strings are accepted. All other input values raise a query error indicating an incorrect type.

DateTime

A date-time string at UTC, such as 2007-12-03T10:15:30Z, compliant with the date-time format outlined in section 5.6 of the RFC 3339 profile of the ISO 8601 standard for representation of dates and times using the Gregorian calendar.

This scalar is a description of an exact instant on the time-line such as the instant that a user account was created.

This scalar ignores leap seconds (thereby assuming that a minute constitutes of 59 seconds). In this respect it diverges from the RFC 3339 profile.

Where an RFC 3339 compliant date-time string has a time-zone other than UTC, it is shifted to UTC. For example, the date-time string "2016-01-01T14:10:20+01:00" is shifted to "2016-01-01T13:10:20Z".

Result Coercion

JavaScript Date instances and Unix timestamps (represented as 32-bit signed integers) are coerced to RFC 3339 compliant date-time strings. Invalid Date instances raise a field error.

Input Coercion

When expected as an input type, only RFC 3339 compliant date-time strings are accepted. All other input values raise a query error indicating an incorrect type.
