typeorm-loader

typeorm-loader

A database-aware data-loader for use with GraphQL and TypeORM.

Description

This package exports GraphQLDatabaseLoader, which is a caching loader that folds a batch of different database queries into a singular query.

Installation

npm install typeorm-loader --save

Usage

You should instantiate a new loader with every request (just to be on the safe side, you don't want data leaking between user sessions), you instantiate it by passing the TypeORM connection as the first argument.

  import { GraphQLDatabaseLoader } from 'typeorm-loader';
 
  const connection = createConnection({ ... });
  const loader = new GraphQLDatabaseLoader(connection);

After which you would use it like so:

  Query{
    getUserByIdasync (_: any, args: { id: string }, context: any, info: GraphQLResolveInfo) => {
      const result = await loader.loadOne(User, { id }, info);
      return result;
    }
  }
