Graphene-JS Build Status PyPI version Coverage Status

Graphene-JS is a JS framework for building GraphQL schemas/types fast and easily.

  • Easy to use: Graphene helps you use GraphQL in Javascript without effort.
  • Relay: Graphene has builtin support for Relay. (on the works)
  • Data agnostic: Graphene supports any kind of data source: SQL (Sequelize), NoSQL, custom objects, etc. We believe that by providing a complete API you could plug Graphene-JS anywhere your data lives and make your data available through GraphQL.

Check also the architecture docs to see how Graphene-JS is architected to ease the development of GraphQL in JS.


Graphene has multiple integrations with different frameworks:

integration Package
Sequelize graphene-sequelize
TypeORM on the works

Also, Graphene is fully compatible with the GraphQL spec, working seamlessly with all GraphQL clients, such as Relay, Apollo and urql.


For instaling graphene, just run this command in your shell

npm install --save graphene-js
# or
yarn add graphene-js


Here is one example for you to get started:

import { ObjectType, Field, Schema } from "graphene-js";

class Query {
  hello() {
    return "Hello world!";

const schema = new Schema({ query: Query });

Then Querying graphene.Schema is as simple as:

query = `
    query SayHello {

var result = schema.execute(query);
