NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::GraphQL - a plugin for adding GraphQL route handlers

SYNOPSIS

my $schema = GraphQL::Schema->from_doc(<<'EOF');
schema {
  query: QueryRoot
}
type QueryRoot {
  helloWorld: String
}
EOF

# for Mojolicious substitute "plugin" with $app->plugin(...
# Mojolicious::Lite (with endpoint under "/graphql")
plugin GraphQL => {
  schema => $schema, root_value => { helloWorld => 'Hello, world!' }
};

# OR, equivalently:
plugin GraphQL => {schema => $schema, handler => sub {
  my ($c, $body, $execute, $subscribe_fn) = @_;
  # returns JSON-able Perl data
  $execute->(
    $schema,
    $body->{query},
    { helloWorld => 'Hello, world!' }, # $root_value
    $c->req->headers,
    $body->{variables},
    $body->{operationName},
    undef, # $field_resolver
    $subscribe_fn ? (undef, $subscribe_fn) : (), # only passed for subs
  );
}};

# OR, with bespoke user-lookup and caching:
plugin GraphQL => {schema => $schema, handler => sub {
  my ($c, $body, $execute, $subscribe_fn) = @_;
  my $user = MyStuff::User->lookup($app->request->headers->header('X-Token'));
  die "Invalid user\n" if !$user; # turned into GraphQL { errors => [ ... ] }
  my $cached_result = MyStuff::RequestCache->lookup($user, $body->{query});
  return $cached_result if $cached_result;
  MyStuff::RequestCache->cache_and_return($execute->(
    $schema,
    $body->{query},
    undef, # $root_value
    $user, # per-request info
    $body->{variables},
    $body->{operationName},
    undef, # $field_resolver
    $subscribe_fn ? (undef, $subscribe_fn) : (), # only passed for subs
  ));
};

# With GraphiQL, on /graphql
plugin GraphQL => {schema => $schema, graphiql => 1};

DESCRIPTION

This plugin allows you to easily define a route handler implementing a GraphQL endpoint, including a websocket for subscriptions following Apollo's subscriptions-transport-ws protocol.

As of version 0.09, it will supply the necessary promise_code parameter to "execute" in GraphQL::Execution. This means your resolvers can (and indeed should) return Promise objects to function asynchronously. As of 0.15 these must be "Promises/A+" as subscriptions require resolve and reject methods.

The route handler code will be compiled to behave like the following:

  • Passes to the GraphQL execute, possibly via your supplied handler, the given schema, $root_value and $field_resolver. Note as above that the wrapper used in this plugin will supply the hash-ref matching "PromiseCode" in GraphQL::Type::Library.
  • The action built matches POST / GET requests.
  • Returns GraphQL results in JSON form.

OPTIONS

Mojolicious::Plugin::GraphQL supports the following options.

convert

Array-ref. First element is a classname-part, which will be prepended with "GraphQL::Plugin::Convert::". The other values will be passed to that class's "to_graphql" in GraphQL::Plugin::Convert method. The returned hash-ref will be used to set options, particularly schema, and probably at least one of resolver and root_value.

endpoint

String. Defaults to /graphql.

schema

A GraphQL::Schema object. As of 0.15, must be supplied.

root_value

An optional root value, passed to top-level resolvers.

resolver

An optional field resolver, replacing the GraphQL default.

handler

An optional route-handler, replacing the plugin's default - see example above for possibilities.

It must return JSON-able Perl data in the GraphQL format, which is a hash with at least one of a data key and/or an errors key.

If it throws an exception, that will be turned into a GraphQL-formatted error.

If being used for a subscription, it will be called with a fourth parameter as shown above. It is safe to not handle this if you are content with GraphQL's defaults.

graphiql

Boolean controlling whether requesting the endpoint with Accept: text/html will return the GraphiQL user interface. Defaults to false.

# Mojolicious::Lite
plugin GraphQL => {schema => $schema, graphiql => 1};

keepalive

Defaults to 0, which means do not send. Otherwise will send a keep-alive packet over websocket every specified number of seconds.

METHODS

Mojolicious::Plugin::GraphQL inherits all methods from Mojolicious::Plugin and implements the following new ones.

register

my $route = $plugin->register(Mojolicious->new, {schema => $schema});

Register renderer in Mojolicious application.

EXPORTS

Exportable is the function promise_code, which returns a hash-ref suitable for passing as the 8th argument to "execute" in GraphQL::Execution.

SUBSCRIPTIONS

To use subscriptions within your web app, just insert this JavaScript:

<script src="//unpkg.com/subscriptions-transport-ws@0.9.16/browser/client.js"></script>
# ...
const subscriptionsClient = new window.SubscriptionsTransportWs.SubscriptionClient(websocket_uri, {
  reconnect: true
});
subscriptionsClient.request({
  query: "subscription s($c: [String!]) {subscribe(channels: $c) {channel username dateTime message}}",
  variables: { c: channel },
}).subscribe({
  next(payload) {
    var msg = payload.data.subscribe;
    console.log(msg.username + ' said', msg.message);
  },
  error: console.error,
});

Note the use of parameterised queries, where you only need to change the variables parameter. The above is adapted from the sample app, https://github.com/graphql-perl/sample-mojolicious.
