GraphQL-Tools-Subscribe

Subscription Framework for GraphQL-Tools

About

This Node.js module provides a subscription framework for GraphQL Tools or plain GraphQL.js which allows GraphQL clients to subscribe on their query and find out whether their previously subscribed queries should be refetched. The framework is designed to allow an arbitrary subscription persistence handling and this way let GraphQL servers to perform additional tasks like publishing the subscription ids of outdated queries (usually by means of a parallel WebSocket connection).

Installation

$ npm install graphql-tools-subscribe

Application Programming Interface (API)

See the TypeScript type definition of the GraphQL-Tools-Subscribe API for details.

Usage Example

import GTS from "graphql-tools-subscribe"
let gts = new GTS({ pubsub: "spm", keyval: "spm" })
gts.open()
let gtsConn = gts.connection("dummy", (sids) => {
    console.log("OUTDATED", sids)
})
gts.on("debug", (msg) => {
    console.log("DEBUG", msg)
})
[...]

let Foo = {}
[...]

let definition = `
    schema {
        query:    Root
        mutation: Root
    }
    type Root {
        ${gts.schemaSubscription()}
        [...]
    }
    type _Subscription {
        ${gts.schemaSubscriptions()}
        ${gts.schemaSubscribe()}
        ${gts.schemaUnsubscribe()}
        ${gts.schemaPause()}
        ${gts.schemaResume()}
    }
    [...]
}
let resolvers = {
    Root: {
        _Subscription: gts.resolverSubscription()
    },
    _Subscription: {
        subscribe:     gts.resolverSubscribe(),
        unsubscribe:   gts.resolverUnsubscribe(),
        subscriptions: gts.resolverSubscriptions(),
        pause:         gts.resolverPause(),
        resume:        gts.resolverResume()
    },
    Foo: {
        get: (obj, args, ctx, info) => {
            let key = args.key
            let val = Foo[key]
            ctx.scope.record({
                op: "read", arity: "one",
                dstType: "Foo", dstIds: [ "Foo" ], dstAttrs: [ key ]
            })
            return val
        },
        set: (obj, args, ctx, info) => {
            let key = args.key
            let val = args.val
            foo[key] = val
            ctx.scope.record({
                op: "update", arity: "one",
                dstType: "Foo", dstIds: [ "Foo" ], dstAttrs: [ key ]
            })
            return null
        },
        [...]
    }
    [...]
}
let schema = GraphQLTools.makeExecutableSchema({
    typeDefs: [ definition ],
    resolvers: resolvers
})

[...]
[...]((query, variables) => {
    let scope = gtsConn.scope(query, variables)
    ctx.scope = scope
    await GraphQL.graphql(schema, query, null, ctx, variables).then((result) => {
        scope.commit()
        [...]
    }).catch((result) => {
        scope.reject()
        [...]
    })
})

Assumptions

It is assumed that you define the GraphQL scalar type UUID and Void with the help of GraphQL-Tools-Types:

import GraphQLToolsTypes from "graphql-tools-types"
...
let definition = `
    scalar Void
    scalar UUID
    ...
`
let resolvers = {
    Void:     GraphQLToolsTypes.Void({ name: "Void" }),
    UUID:     GraphQLToolsTypes.UUID({ name: "UUID", storage: "string" }),
    ...
}
