Not ready for real world usage yet 💣 😱


This is a pure PHP realization of the GraphQL protocol based on the webonyx/graphql-php implementations of the official GraphQL Specification located on Facebook GitHub.

The difference from the above implementations is that the Railt provides the ability to describe the types and extended control of their behavior, thereby solving problems such as:

  • Simplifying type declarations
  • Types reusage
  • Significant simplification of the construction of the API
  • More flexible integration with frameworks (e.g. Laravel or Symfony)
  • And others

Quick start

The documentation is in the process of writing, therefore, in order to understand how it works, a quick start.


This is our main GraphQL application schema.

schema {
    query: Example

type Example {
    say(message: String = "Hello"): String! 
        @route(action: "ExampleController@say")


The GraphQL request query { say } handler indicated in the @route directive

class ExampleController
    public function say(string $message): string
        return $message;


This is the main file that handles all requests to the application. With the same success this role can be performed by any controller in the MVP (MVC with passive models) application, for example on the basis of a Symfony or Laravel.


use Railt\Io\File;
use Railt\Http\Factory;
use Railt\Discovery\Discovery;
use Railt\Foundation\Application;
use Railt\Foundation\Config\Composer;

$loader = require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

// Create and configure an application
$app = new Application(true);
$app->configure(new Composer(Discovery::fromClassLoader($loader)));

// GraphQL SDL application schema
$schema = File::fromPathname(__DIR__ . '/schema.graphqls');

// 1) Send all Requests to our connection
// 2) Send the Response back to the client


    "say": "Something is awesome!"
