    Getting started

    Are you using version >= 0.13.0 and ReScript syntax with VSCode? Make sure you install our decicated VSCode extension. Note: It only works with ReScript syntax.

    Check out the documentation.

    Also, check out the changelog - things will continue change some between versions (including breaking changes, although we'll try and keep them to a minimum) as we iterate and reach a stable version.

    What it looks like

    Your components define what data they need through %relay().

    /* Avatar.res */
    module UserFragment = %relay(
      `
      fragment Avatar_user on User {
        firstName
        lastName
        avatarUrl
      }
    `
    )
    
    @react.component
    let make = (~user) => {
      let userData = UserFragment.use(user)
    
      <img
        className="avatar"
        src=userData.avatarUrl
        alt={
          userData.firstName ++ " "
          userData.lastName
        }
      />
    }
    

    Fragments can include other fragments. This allows you to break your UI into encapsulated components defining their own data demands.

    Hooks to use your fragments are autogenerated for you. The hook needs a fragment reference from the GraphQL object where it was spread. Any object with one or more fragments spread on it will have a fragmentRefs prop on it, someObj.fragmentRefs. Pass that to the fragment hook.

    Avatar_user is spread right on the fragment, so we pass userData.fragmentRefs to the <Avatar /> component since we know it'll contain the fragment ref for Avatar_user that <Avatar /> needs. The <Avatar /> component then uses that to get its data.

    /* UserProfile.res */
    module UserFragment = %relay(
      `
      fragment UserProfile_user on User {
        firstName
        lastName
        friendCount
        ...Avatar_user
      }
    `
    )
    
    @react.component
    let make = (~user) => {
      let userData = UserFragment.use(user)
    
      <div>
        <Avatar user=userData.fragmentRefs />
        <h1> {React.string(userData.firstName ++ (" " ++ userData.lastName))} </h1>
        <div>
          <p>
            {React.string(
              userData.firstName ++ (" has " ++ (userData.friendCount->string_of_int ++ " friends.")),
            )}
          </p>
        </div>
      </div>
    }

    Finally, you make a query using %relay() and include the fragments needed to render the entire tree of components.

    /* Dashboard.res */
    module Query = %relay(`
      query DashboardQuery {
        me {
          ...UserProfile_user
        }
      }
    `)
    
    @react.component
    let make = () => {
      let queryData = Query.use(~variables=(), ())
    
      <div> <UserProfile user=queryData.me.fragmentRefs /> </div>
    }
