kandi X-RAY | graphql-spec Summary

graphql-spec is a Shell library typically used in Web Services, GraphQL applications. graphql-spec has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities and it has medium support. You can download it from GitHub.

This is a Working Draft of the Specification for GraphQL, a query language for APIs created by Facebook. The target audience for this specification is not the client developer, but those who have, or are actively interested in, building their own GraphQL implementations and tools. In order to be broadly adopted, GraphQL will have to target a wide variety of backend environments, frameworks, and languages, which will necessitate a collaborative effort across projects and organizations. This specification serves as a point of coordination for this effort. Looking for help? Find resources from the community.

            is this GraphQL query valid?
            Asked 2020-Jan-29 at 18:42

            Assume a simple schema like

            (Copying response from issue)

            Actually, I think that it is valid. The spec says :

            • If selectionType is an interface, union, or object

            The subselection set of that selection must NOT BE empty

            It simply states that it must contain a subselection (could be an inline fragment as in your example). It doesn't specify that its subselections must be leaf field selections.

            I agree that in essence it should actually contain leaf selections for every possible subtype of the field's return type (e.g Human and Droid in your scenario), otherwise it could return an empty response. For instance, if there are no humans and 3 droids in your database then it would return:



            what's difference between schema and documents in Graphql?
            Asked 2019-Dec-19 at 22:55

            what's the difference between schema and documents in Graphql?

            schema is like this:



            Answered 2019-Dec-19 at 22:55

            A document is really any string containing valid GraphQL syntax. According to the spec, a document contains one or more definitions, where a definition could be:

            an operation definition



            Documentation at the top level of a GraphQL schema
            Asked 2019-Jun-24 at 22:03

            I'm documenting all my types, fields and parameters in my schema (SDL), including Query and Mutation at the top - but I can't work out how to add a single piece of documentation for the top-level of the whole schema.

            I'm not sure if it's the spec or the tooling - Apollo for example allows me to write schema { }, but not to put anything inside it, or documentation before it.

            And there are no examples of it in the docs, particularly at, which shows a "well-described" schema without a top-top-level doc string.

            Is this something the spec doesn't cover, or just the tooling?



            Answered 2019-Jun-24 at 22:03

            Unlike types, the SchemaDefinition spec does not contain a Description. The __Schema introspection type also does not have a description field. So there is no way to set or get a description for the entire schema.

            It is, however, an upcoming feature.



            check for missing resolvers
            Asked 2019-May-12 at 16:50

            How would you scan schema for missing resolver for queries and non-scalar fields ?

            I'm trying to work with a dynamic schema so I need to be able to test this programmatically. I've been browsing graphql tools for few hours to find a way to do this, but I'm getting nowhere...

            any help is appreciated !



            Answered 2019-May-12 at 16:50

            Given an instance of GraphQLSchema (i.e. what's returned by makeExecutableSchema) and your resolvers object, you can just check it yourself. Something like this should work:



            How to avoid wrapping errors collection in a error object in Apollo Server V2 in error response
            Asked 2019-May-11 at 10:54

            We are migrating our Apollo Graphql Server v1 projects to v2.

            We noticed that there is a change in the error response format.

            In v2, the errors list in the response is wrapped within an error object.

            But, in v1, it is not so. We want to have a a consistent standard and not introduce the wrapping behaviour in v2.

            I understand that GraphQL services may provide add additional fields via extensions as per below link. Link:

            I have tested Apollo GraphQL V2 and this is how it is implemented there.

            In v1 it is as expected.

            In v1,we see error response as below,



            Answered 2019-May-11 at 10:54

            This behavior has not changed in version 2. Apollo Server produces spec-compliant responses and does not not wrap any resulting errors in an error object. Instead, this is just a known bug with GraphQL Playground. With version 2.0, Apollo Server transition from GraphiQL to GraphQL Playground. GraphiQL did not have this same issue, which is why this looks like a bug with Apollo Server. Check the network tab and look at the actual response from your server -- it's actually in the expected format.

            GraphQL consists of a type system, query language and execution semantics, static validation, and type introspection, each outlined below. To guide you through each of these components, we've written an example designed to illustrate the various pieces of GraphQL. This example is not comprehensive, but it is designed to quickly introduce the core concepts of GraphQL, to provide some context before diving into the more detailed specification or the GraphQL.js reference implementation. The premise of the example is that we want to use GraphQL to query for information about characters and locations in the original Star Wars trilogy.
