Build Status Build Status License: MIT npm version

Transformers for importing .graphql files in various build tools.

Installation

yarn add graphql-mini-transforms

Usage

Webpack

This package provides a loader for .graphql files in Webpack. This loader automatically minifies and adds a unique identifier to each GraphQL document. These features are used by @shopify/webpack-persisted-graphql-plugin to generate a mapping of identifiers to GraphQL operations for persisted queries.

To use this loader in Webpack, add a rule referencing this loader to your Webpack configuration:

module.exports = {
  module: {
    rules: [
      {
        test: /\.(graphql|gql)$/,
        use: 'graphql-mini-transforms/webpack-loader',
        exclude: /node_modules/,
      },
    ],
  },
};

Note that, unlike graphql-tag/loader, this loader does not currently support exporting multiple operations from a single file. You can, however, import other GraphQL documents containing fragments with #import comments at the top of the file:

#import './ProductVariantPriceFragment.graphql';

query Product {
  product {
    variants(first: 10) {
      edges {
        node {
          ...ProductVariantId
          ...ProductVariantPrice
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

fragment ProductVariantId on ProductVariant {
  id
}

Options

This loader accepts a single option, format. This option changes the shape of the value exported from .graphql files. By default, a graphql-typed DocumentNode is exported, but you can also provide these alternative formats instead:

  • simple: a SimpleDocument is exported instead. This representation of GraphQL documents is smaller than a full DocumentNode, but generally won’t work with normalized GraphQL caches like the one used in Apollo Client.
  • simple-persisted: like simple, but with the source property removed. This means that the original document will not be present in your JavaScript at all. This option is only appropriate for apps using “persisted queries”, where only a hash of the query (available as the id property) is sent to the server.
module.exports = {
  module: {
    rules: [
      {
        test: /\.(graphql|gql)$/,
        use: 'graphql-mini-transforms/webpack-loader',
        exclude: /node_modules/,
        options: {format: 'simple'},
      },
    ],
  },
};

If this option is set to simple or simple-persisted, you should also use the jest-simple transformer for Jest, and the --export-format simple flag for graphql-typescript-definitions.

Rollup / Vite

This package provides a plugin for loading .graphql files in Rollup.

To use this plugin, add a rule referencing this loader to your Rollup configuration:

// rollup.config.mjs

import {graphql} from 'graphql-mini-transforms/rollup';

export default {
  // ...
  // Other Rollup config
  // ...
  plugins: [graphql()],
};

Like the Webpack loader, you can provide a format option to control the way documents are exported from .graphql files:

// rollup.config.mjs

import {graphql} from 'graphql-mini-transforms/rollup';

export default {
  // ...
  // Other Rollup config
  // ...
  plugins: [graphql({format: 'simple'})],
};

For convenience, a Vite-friendly version of this plugin is also provided:

// vite.config.mjs

import {graphql} from 'graphql-mini-transforms/vite';

export default {
  // ...
  // Other Vite config
  // ...
  plugins: [graphql()],
};

Jest

This package also provides a transformer for GraphQL files in Jest. To use the transformer, add a reference to it in your Jest configuration’s transform option:

module.exports = {
  transform: {
    '\\.(gql|graphql)$': 'graphql-mini-transforms/jest',
  },
};

If you want to get the same output as the format: 'simple' option of the webpack loader, you can instead use the jest-simple loader transformer:

module.exports = {
  transform: {
    '\\.(gql|graphql)$': 'graphql-mini-transforms/jest-simple',
  },
};

Prior art

This loader takes heavy inspiration from the following projects:

We wrote something custom in order to get the following benefits:

  • Significantly smaller output with no runtime
  • Automatically-generated document identifiers
