Latest commit

- This release updates the way that gqlgen is initialized
  and how a server is passed to the router.
- Consumers should reference the official documentation
  in PR#1004 regarding query complexity.

GQLGen PG TODO Example

A simple, no fuss, example thats updated regularly to stay current with the API landscape

Introduction

This project is intended to help newcomers to gqlgen and GraphQL. This isn't meant to be the ONLY way you should organize and build your application. I took extensively liberties here to minimize func calls and writing helper wrappers which do nothing more than confuse newcomers.

Setup

  1. Install Go 1.13 or greater.
    • The recommended approach is to use the installer to get started.
  2. Install Postgres
    • This varies depending on the environment that you're on and I don't intend for this repository to list the steps necessary to install pg.
  3. Ensure that you have a todos database created
    • There's a makefile step already available, make init which will create the database if it doesn't already exist
  4. Start the magic by running the following command
    • go run main.go

Updating GraphQL Models + CodeGen

The application uses (GQLGEN) to generate statically typed bindings for all of the grahql models.

  1. Generate the Go model that represents the graph model. An example looks like the following:
package models

import (
	"time"
)

// User Graph datamodel
type User struct {
	ID     string `json:"id"`
	Email  string `json:"email"`

	FirstName   string `json:"firstName"`
	LastName    string `json:"lastName"`

	CreatedAt     time.Time `json:"createdAt"`
	UpdatedAt     time.Time `json:"updatedAt"`
}
  1. Add/Update your model in the /schema folder of the application. An example looks like the following. Note that you must reference the graph model package with the @goModel directive.
type User
  @goModel(
    model: "github.com/oshalygin/gqlgen-pg-todo-example/models/models.User"
  ) {
  id: ID!
  email: String!

  firstName: String!
  lastName: String!

  createdAt: Time!
  updatedAt: Time!
}
  1. Run the codegen process
make gen
  1. Implement the resolver within the resolvers package.

Generating Dataloaders

# Run the following commands to generate dataloaders
# This command will place a codegen dataloader in the graph/generated folder
# Note that the loader argument is required and the value is case sensitive
make dataloader loader=User

You must still create the appropriate dataloader in the codebase to support the generated implementation.

// Create the loader that resembles other loaders in the dataloaders package
// This is merely an example

func User(db *pg.DB, w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request, next http.Handler) {
	loader := generated.NewUserLoader(generated.UserLoaderConfig{
		MaxBatch: 100,
		Wait:     1 * time.Millisecond,
		Fetch: func(keys []int) ([]*models.User, []error) {

			var dbUsers []*models.User
			// This query does NOT return an array that matches the order of the IN
			// clause.  Meaning: SELECT * FROM Users where id IN (1,8,3)
			// will not return users 1, 8, 3 in that order.  This order is VERY important
			// as that is how the dataloaden library resolves and matches objects.  Note the ids here are collected via
			// goroutines and the order is not going to be nicely ordered to match your DB
			// result query.  Try adding a breakpoint here and looking at the arg(keys) and the
			// resulting array from the following where query.
			err := db.Model(&dbUsers).WhereIn("id IN (?)", keys).Select()

			if err != nil {
				return []*models.User{}, []error{err}
			}

			// All we're doing here on out is just ordering our
			// collection to match the argument keys []int collection
			userKeys := make(map[int]*models.User)
			users := make([]*models.User, len(keys))

			for _, user := range dbUsers {
				userKeys[user.ID] = user

			}

			for i, k := range keys {
				if user, ok := userKeys[k]; ok {
					users[i] = user
				}
			}

			return users, []error{err}
		},
	})

	ctx := context.WithValue(r.Context(), UserLoader, loader)
	next.ServeHTTP(w, r.WithContext(ctx))
}


// Add a new entry in the NewMiddleware function

func NewMiddleware(session *mgo.Session) []func(handler http.Handler) http.Handler {
	return []func(handler http.Handler) http.Handler{
		setLoader(session, User),
    // setLoader(session, YourLoader)
	}
}

Note if you're going to use the make script for dataloader creation, you may consider extending it to take something other than an int for the key(in the case of uuid keys)

Resolvers

The first step before adding a resolver is to define a new mutation/query or property in your GQL Schema. For example:

todoCreate(todo: TodoInput!): Todo!

Ensure that you actually have a TodoInput input type defined:

input TodoInput
  @goModel(
    model: "github.com/oshalygin/gqlgen-pg-todo-example/models.TodoInput"
  ) {
  name: String!
  createdBy: Int!
}

Run the code gen:

make gen
# or
go generate ./...

Depending on what you added you will now get compiler errors in the file resolvers.go. What you see depends on your terminal output or your IDEA. Here are some examples of unimplemented code:

Unimplemented Resolver

# github.com/oshalygin/gqlgen-pg-todo-example/resolvers
resolvers/resolver.go:14:27: cannot use &mutationResolver literal (type *mutationResolver) as type generated.MutationResolver in return argument:
	*mutationResolver does not implement generated.MutationResolver (missing TodoComplete method)

Sample Queries

query {
  users {
    id
    email
    firstName
    lastName
  }
}
query {
  user(id: 1) {
    id
    email
    firstName
    lastName
  }
}
mutation {
  userCreate(
    user: {
      email: "gandalf@gmail.com"
      firstName: "Gandalf"
      lastName: "Wizard"
    }
  ) {
    id
    email
    firstName
    lastName
    createdAt
  }
}
query {
  todo(id: 1) {
    id
    name
    isComplete
    isDeleted
    createdAt
    updatedAt
    createdBy {
      firstName
      lastName
    }
  }
}
query {
  todos {
    id
    name
    isComplete
    createdBy {
      firstName
      lastName
      email
    }
  }
}
mutation {
  todoComplete(id: 1, updatedBy: 2) {
    id
    name
    isComplete
    isDeleted

    createdBy {
      firstName
    }

    updatedBy {
      firstName
    }

    createdAt
    updatedAt
  }
}
