GraphQL Relay Walker Build Status Gem Version

GraphQL::Relay::Walker is a Ruby library that generates queries for walking a Relay GraphQL schema. Given a GraphQL::Schema, you can walk from a given starting point, exercising any defined connections. This can be useful for various kinds of automated testing. Check out the GitHub Walker example to see it in action.

Setup

You can install this library as a Ruby Gem:

$ gem install graphql-relay-walker

Usage

require "graphql/relay/walker"

id = "<some starting node id>"
query = GraphQL::Relay::Walker.query_string(client.schema)


GraphQL::Relay::Walker.walk(from_id: id) do |frame|
  # The global relay id of the object we're looking at.
  frame.gid

  # The frame where we discovered this object's GID.
  frame.parent

  # Execute the query and store the result in the frame.
  # The implementation here is up to you, but you should set
  # `frame.result` to the Hash result of executing the query.
  frame.result = execute(query, variables: {"id" => frame.gid})

  # Parse the results, adding any newly discovered IDs to our queue.
  frame.enqueue_found_gids
end

Usage with GraphQL::Client

Requiring graphql/relay/walker/client_ext will add a GraphQL::Client#walk method. This simplifies things by allowing the client to build and execute the query for you.

Here's how you would walk the SWAPI GraphQL Wrapper, starting from Luke Skywalker, assuming a client configuration like this.

require "graphql/relay/walker/client_ext"

skywalker_gid = "cGVvcGxlOjE="

SWAPI::Client.walk(from_id: skywalker_gid) do |frame|
  # The global relay id of the object we're looking at.
  frame.gid

  # The frame where we discovered this object's GID.
  frame.parent

  # The result of executing the query for this frame's GID.
  frame.result
end
