graphql-mock-object

Prototype your UI with GraphQL mock { ... } objects before defining complex types & resolvers.

GraphQL works best as a backend for the frontend (BFF) that matches the structure of your UI. graphql-mock-object makes it simple for your UI to request data however you'd like. Once you're done prototyping, you can replace mocks with real resolvers and return real data.

Installation

I recommend saving into devDependencies, as prototyping is typically done in development, not production.

yarn add --dev graphql-mock-object
# ...or...
npm install --save-dev graphql-mock-object

Then add it to your application:

import { graphiqlExpress, graphqlExpress } from "apollo-server-express"
import bodyParser from "body-parser"
import express from "express"
import { makeExecutableSchema } from "graphql-tools"
 
// 👇 All the dependencies we need
import { mock, MockObject, typeDefs } from "graphql-mock-object"
 
const schema = makeExecutableSchema({
  typeDefs: [
    ...typeDefs, // 👈 All the mock types we're dependent on
    `type Query { version: String }`, // 👈 Your existing `Query`
    `extend type Query { mock: MockObject! }`, // 👈 Add `mock` to `Query`
  ],
  resolvers: {
    MockObject, // 👈 This resolves all mock properties
    Query: {
      mock, // 👈 This is needed to query `mock`
      version() {
        return require("../../../package.json").version
      },
    },
  },
})
 
// The rest of your app...
export const app = express()
  .get("/", (req, res) => res.redirect("/graphiql"))
  .use("/graphql", bodyParser.json(), graphqlExpress({ schema }))
  .use("/graphiql", graphiqlExpress({ endpointURL: "/graphql" }))
  .listen(3000, function(err) {
    if (err) {
      console.error(err)
      return
    }
 
    console.log("Listening at http://localhost:3000")
  })
