Thank you so much for a wonderful library!

I encountered the same problem with, so I fixed it not to panic and return an error instead. As you mentioned in the issue, I think it would be better for the library to return error rather ignoring the panic, since that makes it easier for users to debug!

Thanks 馃憤

Hi @shuheiktgw,

Thanks for the PR. In order to proceed here, we need a decision on #36. I've made one in #36 (comment) and it's compatible with the direction you've taken here.

I have a suggestion for how we can improve the implementation. Instead of modifying unmarshalValue to return an error if v isn't settable, we can detect the problem sooner. We should not add unexported fields to the d.vs stacks in the first place. That can be done by modifying fieldByGraphQLName to not consider unexported fields.

I'll push a modified version to this PR, please take a look and let me know what you think.

internal/jsonutil: Skip unexported fields.
This change makes jsonutil.UnmarshalGraphQL not consider unexported fields when looking for a matching field.

Document unmarshalValue precondition that v must be addressing and not obtained by the use of unexported fields. That makes it settable, which is a requirement. We want to arrange the internal jsonutil code so that unmarshalValue is never called on an unsettable reflect.Value.

Fixes #36.
