Note: The primary maintainer @acao is on hiatus until December 2020 Looking for the GraphiQL Docs?: This is the root of the monorepo! The full GraphiQL docs are located at packages/graphiql

Overview

GraphiQL is the reference implementation of this monorepo, GraphQL IDE, an official project under the GraphQL Foundation. The code uses the permissive MIT license.

Whether you want a simple GraphiQL IDE instance for your server, or a more advanced web or desktop GraphQL IDE experience for your framework or plugin, or you want to build an IDE extension or plugin, you've come to the right place!

The purpose of this monorepo is to give the GraphQL Community:

  • a to-specification official language service (see: API Docs)
  • a comprehensive LSP server and CLI service for use with IDEs
  • a codemirror mode
  • a monaco mode (in the works)
  • an example of how to use this ecosystem with GraphiQL.
  • examples of how to implement or extend GraphiQL.

Latest Stable Ecosystem

graphiql@1.0.x and ecosystem are organized as below. Any further changes to graphiql@1.0.x are made against 1.0.0 branch

Proposed Ecosystem

As we re-write for graphiql@2.x ecosystem, this monorepo will contain an sdk and plugins.

How To Setup/Implement GraphiQL

Edit graphiql-example

The GraphiQL Readme explains some of the ways to implement GraphiQL, and we also have the examples directory as well!

Monaco GraphQL

NPM jsDelivr hits (npm) npm downloads Snyk Vulnerabilities for npm package

Provides monaco editor with a powerful, schema-driven graphql language mode.

See the webpack example for a plain javascript demo using github API

CodeMirror GraphQL

GraphQL Language Service

NPM npm downloads Snyk Vulnerabilities for npm package

Provides a command-line interface for running GraphQL Language Service Server for various IDEs.

GraphQL Language Service Server

NPM npm downloads Snyk Vulnerabilities for npm package

An almost fully LSP compliant server process backing the GraphQL Language Service.

GraphQL Language Service Interface

Runtime agnostic Language Service used by GraphQL mode for CodeMirror and GraphQL Language Service Server

GraphQL Language Service Parser

NPM npm downloads Snyk Vulnerabilities for npm package

An online immutable parser for GraphQL, designed to be used as part of syntax-highlighting and code intelligence tools such as for the GraphQL Language Service and codemirror-graphql.

GraphQL Language Service Types

NPM npm downloads

Flow and Typescript type definitions for the GraphQL Language Service.

GraphQL Language Service Utilities

NPM npm downloads Snyk Vulnerabilities for npm package

Utilities to support the GraphQL Language Service.

Browser & Runtime Support

Many of these packages need to work in multiple environments.

By default, all typescript packages target es6.

graphql-language-service-server and graphql-language-service-cli are made for the node runtime, so they target es2017

codemirror-graphql and the graphiql browser bundle use the .browserslistrc, which targets modern browsers to keep bundle size small and keep the language services performant where async/await is used, and especially to avoid the requirement of rengenerator-runtime or special babel configuration.

.browserslistrc:

last 2 versions
Firefox ESR
not dead
not IE 11
not ios 10
maintained node versions

To be clear, we do not support Internet Explorer or older versions of evergreen browsers.

Fielding Proposals!

The door is open for proposals for the new GraphiQL Plugin API, and other ideas on how to make the rest of the IDE ecosystem more performant, scaleable, interoperable and extensible. Feel free to open a PR to create a document in the /proposals/ directory. Eventually we hope to move these to a repo that serves this purpose.
