JSON scalar type for GraphQL.js.



This package exports a JSON scalar GraphQL.js type:

import GraphQLJSON from 'graphql-type-json';

Programmatically-constructed schemas

You can use this in a programmatically-constructed schema as with any other scalar type:

import { GraphQLObjectType } from 'graphql';
import GraphQLJSON from 'graphql-type-json';

export default new GraphQLObjectType({
  name: 'MyType',

  fields: {
    myField: { type: GraphQLJSON },

SDL with GraphQL-tools

When using the SDL with GraphQL-tools, define GraphQLJSON as the resolver for the appropriate scalar type in your schema:

import { makeExecutableSchema } from 'graphql-tools';
import GraphQLJSON from 'graphql-type-json';

const typeDefs = `
scalar JSON

type MyType {
  myField: JSON

# ...

const resolvers = {

export default makeExecutableSchema({ typeDefs, resolvers });
