Swagger to Graphene

This library can be used to convert Swagger schema into dynamic Graphene models.
The system can be deloyed on AWS using Serverless framework and can serve GraphQL based queries instantly.

  • Converts swagger models into GraphQL based APIs
  • Dynamic Graphene models
  • Serverless framework for deployment


Some examples elaborting the conversion of Swagger Schema into GraphQL API.

1. Simple Case

Consider simple swagger schema as specified in Simple Swagger Definition
This model is derived from the default PetStore example on and has three fields: id, name, age.
This library can be used to build dynamic Graphene models, which are then deployed to AWS, making your API ready to be used for GraphQL based queries.
The image below shows an example of query executed against this simple schema.

2. Complex Case

This library is also able to handle complex API schema definitions consisting of varios datatypes such as arrays, nested objects, array of nested objects etc. An example of such schema is defined here Complex Swagger Definition

Complex Swagger Schema: N|Solid

Sample Graphene query: N|Solid



  • python 3.6
  • pip3
  • npm
  • AWS account

Setup virtual environment

$ virtualenv -p $(which python3.6) runLocal 
$ source runLocal/bin/activate 

Project requirements installations

$ pip3 install -r requirements.txt 

Serverless setup

$ npm install -g serverless 
$ npm install --save-dev serverless-python-requirements 

Setting up source data

Open data/databse.csv and edit it to provide the information about your APIs in csv format.

  • Root entity: This would be the root node of GraphQL query or API resource.
  • Swagger souce url: Provide the endpoint for Swagger schema definition.
  • API endpoint: Provide the endpoint for API. (only GETs are supports for now)

Sample csv file structure:

Root Entity Swagger Source Url API Endpoint
Pet file:///data/swagger_definition.json


Deploy using serverless framework.
You would need AWS's account id and a S3 bucket.

$ (runLocal) serverless deploy --accountID <AWS::AccountId> --stage <dev|qa|prod> --deployment_s3_bucket <s3_bucket_name> 

Console Output

>$ (runLocal) serverless deploy --accountID XXX --stage prod --deployment_s3_bucket serverless-bucket-prod-swagger-graphene

GraphiQL Use the API gateway url generated as GraphQL Endpoint in GraphiQL to run queries on the API.

Running Unittests

Tests are under tests/unittests folder and can be run using pytest or directly via PyCharm.
