GraphQL for .NET

Build Status NuGet Join the chat at https://gitter.im/graphql-dotnet/graphql-dotnet

This is an implementation of Facebook's GraphQL in .NET.

This project uses a lexer/parser originally written by Marek Magdziak and released with a MIT license. Thank you Marek!

Basic Usage

Define your schema with a top level query object then execute that query.

Fully-featured examples can be found here.

Hello World

var schema = Schema.For(@"
  type Query {
    hello: String
  }
");

var root = new { Hello = "Hello World!" };
var json = schema.Execute(_ =>
{
  _.Query = "{ hello }";
  _.Root = root;
});

Console.WriteLine(json);

Schema First Approach

This example uses the Graphql schema language. See the documentation for more examples and information.

public class Droid
{
  public string Id { get; set; }
  public string Name { get; set; }
}

public class Query
{
  [GraphQLMetadata("droid")]
  public Droid GetDroid()
  {
    return new Droid { Id = "123", Name = "R2-D2" };
  }
}

var schema = Schema.For(@"
  type Droid {
    id: ID
    name: String
  }

  type Query {
    droid: Droid
  }
", _ => {
    _.Types.Include<Query>();
});

var json = schema.Execute(_ =>
{
  _.Query = "{ droid { id name } }";
});

Parameters

public class Droid
{
  public string Id { get; set; }
  public string Name { get; set; }
}

public class Query
{
  private List<Droid> _droids = new List<Droid>
  {
    new Droid { Id = "123", Name = "R2-D2" }
  };

  [GraphQLMetadata("droid")]
  public Droid GetDroid(string id)
  {
    return _droids.FirstOrDefault(x => x.Id == id);
  }
}

var schema = Schema.For(@"
  type Droid {
    id: ID
    name: String
  }

  type Query {
    droid(id: ID): Droid
  }
", _ => {
    _.Types.Include<Query>();
});

var json = schema.Execute(_ =>
{
  _.Query = $"{{ droid(id: \"123\") {{ id name }} }}";
});

Grammar / AST

Operation Execution

  • Scalars
  • Objects
  • Lists of objects/interfaces
  • Interfaces
  • Unions
  • Arguments
  • Variables
  • Fragments
  • Directives
    • Include
    • Skip
    • Custom
  • Enumerations
  • Input Objects
  • Mutations

  • Async execution

Validation

  • Arguments of correct type
  • Default values of correct type
  • Fields on correct type
  • Fragments on composite types
  • Known argument names
  • Known directives
  • Known fragment names
  • Known type names
  • Lone anonymous operations
  • No fragment cycles

  • Overlapping fields can be merged (help with this rule)
  • Possible fragment spreads
  • Provide non-null arguments
  • Scalar leafs
  • Unique argument names
  • Unique directives per location
  • Unique fragment names
