    npm

    Please see the main Hops Readme for general information and a Getting Started Guide.

    This is a preset for Hops in order to start and configure an Apollo Server that can be used for GraphQL mocking to enable faster local development.

    Installation

    Add this preset (and any other packages that you may need to create an executable schema, such as @graphql-tools/schema) to your existing Hops React project:

    npm install --save hops-apollo-mock-server

    If you don't already have an existing Hops project read this section on how to set up your first Hops project.

    Usage

    Creating custom mocks and stitching schemas using Apollo Server

    When you are using GraphQL on client side to fetch and bind data into your UI components, it's quite often necessary to work with mock/stub data. There exists tons of feasible reasons why mocking makes sense in daily practices. In summary, the following seem to be the most important.

    • GraphQL schema design in a Frontend-Driven approach
    • Switching between local and remote query execution to work autonomously without an online GraphQL-Server access
    • Faster execution of component integration test using local mock data sets
    • Mock data set support to prove experimental/feature functionality thesis

    You can enable mocking by configuring a file that exports an executable schema. Read more about schema stitching and check out this blog post for more examples.

    Supports Local GraphQL Playground against your GraphQL schema

    open http://localhost:<port>/graphql

    GraphiQL Playground

    Configuration

    Preset Options

    Name Type Default Required Description
    fragmentsFile String <rootDir>/fragmentTypes.json no Where to store the generated fragment types file
    graphqlUri String '' yes Url to your GraphQL endpoint or mock server
    graphqlSchemaFile String '' no Path to your GraphQL schema file
    graphqlMockSchemaFile String '' no Path to your GraphQL schema mocks
    graphqlMockServerPath String '/graphql' no Path of the mock server endpoint
    fragmentsFile

    This option controls where the fragment type information that are used for the IntrospectionFragmentMatcher should be saved.

    By default executing $ hops graphql introspect will create a file called fragmentTypes.json in the application root directory.

    "hops": {
      "fragmentsFile": "<rootDir>/fragmentTypes.json"
    }
    graphqlUri

    This is the full URI to your GraphQL endpoint which should be used by the client- and server-side when executing requests.

    This will also be used to generate fragment type information with $ hops graphql introspect in case no graphqlSchemaFile has been provided.

    "hops": {
      "graphqlUri": "https://www.graphqlhub.com/graphql"
    }
    graphqlSchemaFile

    In case your GraphQL server (configured via graphqlUri) does not answer to introspection queries, you can provide the full schema as a file from which the introspection fragment matcher can generate information about unions and interfaces.

    "hops": {
      "graphqlSchemaFile": "<rootDir>/schema.graphql"
    }
    graphqlMockSchemaFile

    Specify the path to your stitched mock schema, which is a file that exports an executable schema or a promise that resolves to an executable schema.

    {
      "hops": {
        "graphqlMockSchemaFile": "<rootDir>/graphql/index.js"
      }
    }

    Example mock schema: graphql/index.js

    import { makeExecutableSchema } from '@graphql-tools/schema';
    import { addMocksToSchema } from '@graphql-tools/mock';
    import merge from 'lodash.merge';
    
    import schema1 from './schema1.graphql';
    import schema2 from './schema2.graphql';
    
    import resolvers1 from './resolvers1';
    import resolvers2 from './resolvers2';
    
    const typeDefs = [schema1, schema2];
    
    const resolvers = merge(resolvers1, resolvers2);
    
    const mockSchema = makeExecutableSchema({
      typeDefs,
      resolvers,
    });
    
    export default addMocksToSchema({
      schema: mockSchema,
      mocks: {
        Date: () => '2017-10-17T13:06:22Z',
      },
      preserveResolvers: true,
    });
