FetchQL

npm Build Status Coverage Status

FetchQL is a query client for GraphQL server works on both browser and Node(need fetch support, eg. node-fetch)

New in v3.0.0

New TypeScript declaration file(.tsd). #9

Upgrade to 2.2.0

Now FetchQL distributes an ES module(./lib/fetchql.es.js) by default and you can simply import FetchQL by import fetchql from 'fetchql'.

For details, please refer to PR: Added support for ES modules by default.

Breaking Changes(since v2.0.0)

  • Source code has been moved into ./src and distributed file goes to ./lib;
  • Distributed file(./lib/fetchql.js) is unminified now.

Pros:

  • lightweight
  • wrap query methods
  • easily set server-side
  • get enum types by names (with cache)
  • built-in interceptors
  • request state callbacks
  • written in ES2015 and modules

Usage

FetchQL distributes both ES module and CommonJS module

Import FetchQL:

  • import FetchQL from 'fetchql'
  • const FetchQL = require('fetchql')

ES module support is determined by your bundler tool(webpack, rollup, etc.).

Documentation

  • Class FetchQL

    var Query = new FetchQL({ url, interceptors, headers, onStart, onEnd, omitEmptyVariables })

    {
      url: '', // GraphQL server address
      interceptors: [],
      headers: {}, // customized headers of all requests,
      onStart: function (requestQueueLength) {}, // callback of a new request queue
      onEnd: function (requestQueueLength) {} // callback of a request queue finished
      omitEmptyVariables: false, // remove null props(null or '') from the variables
    }
  • interceptor

    interceptors is an optional parameter of the class. It can be an Array or an Object.

    {
      url: '',
      interceptors: [interceptor]
      // or
      // interceptors: interceptor
    }
    
    // interceptor
    {
      request: function (url, config) {
          // Modify the url or config here
          return [url, config];
      },
    
      requestError: function (error) {
          // Called when an error occured during another 'request' interceptor call
          return Promise.reject(error);
      },
    
      response: function (response) {
          // Modify the reponse object
          return response;
      },
    
      responseError: function (error) {
          // Handle an fetch error
          return Promise.reject(error);
      }
    }
  • FetchQL.addInterceptors(interceptor[]|interceptor) => function

    Add more interceptors. Arguments are same with interceptors of class.

    It will return a function to remove added interceptors.

  • FetchQL.clearInterceptors() => void

    Remove all interceptors.

  • FetchQL.query()

    Query.query({operationName: '', query: '', variables: {}, opts: {}}) => Promise

    Method for query data from the server. operationName must be provided.

    query and variables are followed the specification fo GraphQL.

    If any errors exist(from query response), will reject the promise.

    • opts - additional options(will not be passed to server)

      • opts.omitEmptyVariables - similar to omitEmptyVariables global settings, remove null props(null or '') from the variables
  • FetchQL.getEnumTypes()

    Query.getEnumTypes(['array', 'of', 'enum', 'name']) => Promise

    Will get enums' information from the server. Then you can get the following Object in the promise:

    {
      array: {
        name: '',
        kind: '',
        description: '',
        enumValues: {
          name: '',
          description: '',
        }
      },
      of: {...},
      enum: {...},
      name: {...}
    }

    This method currently supports caching. All enum will be cached after first querying.

  • FetchQL.getUrl()

    Return current server address.

  • FetchQL.setUrl()

    Query.setUrl('')

    Set a new server address.

  • callback - onStart(requestQueueLength), onEnd(requestQueueLength)

    When FetchQL make a new request, if it belongs to a new queue(means there are no requests before), will call onStart().

    By this, you can know that now there are some network requests within FetchQL.

    When FetchQL finishes a request and find that there are no requests anymore, will call onEnd().

    By this, you can know that all requests within FetchQL have been finished.

    These two callbacks are useful when you want to watch the state of FetchQL's network requesting.

    For example, you may have an indicator(loading spinner, loading bar) in your web application, with this feature you can easily manage the indicator's state(display or not);

  • omitEmptyVariables - Boolean(default to false) remove null props(null or '') from the variables in query

    Sometimes null or '' could be different meanings in backend logic.

    And if you just want the backend to ignore these variables, use this option to remove them.

    Notice: Only properties those in an object of 'variables', will be removed.

    { willNotRemove: '', obj: { emptyString: '', nullProp: null } } => { willNotRemove: '', obj: {} } // remove them
    
  • requestOptions - Object change request options of fetch in FetchQL.

    var ql = new FetchQL(
      {
        requestOptions: {
          credentials: 'include',
        },
      }
    );
    
    ql.query(
      {
        requestOptions: {
          credentials: 'same-origin',
        },
      }
    );
    

    requestOptions in FetchQL's new constructor or query is used to change request options of fetch method in FetchQL.

    Set it in the new constructor will change default request options in all query in FetchQL.

    Set it in query method will only change request options of the current query.

Tips

  1. FetchQL in angularjs

.js or .mjs

  • Use index.js in any ES2015 environment.
  • Use index.mjs for Node (version >= 6.0) without babel, because Node doesn't support ES2015 modules natively.

Develop

npm install

./test/server.js could be used as a development server.
