graphqurl is a curl like CLI for GraphQL. It's features include:

  • CLI for making GraphQL queries. It also provisions queries with autocomplete.
  • Run a custom GraphiQL, where you can specify request's headers, locally against any endpoint
  • Use as a library with Node.js or from the browser
  • Supports subscriptions
  • Export GraphQL schema

Installation

Steps to Install CLI

npm install -g graphqurl

Steps to Install Node Library

npm install --save graphqurl

Usage

CLI

Query

gq https://my-graphql-endpoint/graphql \
     -H 'Authorization: Bearer <token>' \
     -q 'query { table { column } }'

Auto-complete

Graphqurl can auto-complete queries using schema introspection. Execute the command without providing a query string:

$ gq <endpoint> [-H <header:value>]
Enter the query, use TAB to auto-complete, Ctrl+Q to execute, Ctrl+C to cancel
gql>

You can use TAB to trigger auto-complete. Ctrl+C to cancel the input and Ctrl+Q/Enter to execute the query.

GraphiQL

Open GraphiQL with a given endpoint:

gq <endpoint> -i

This is a custom GraphiQL where you can specify request's headers.

Subscription

Subscriptions can be executed and the response is streamed on to stdout.

gq <endpoint> \
   -q 'subscription { table { column } }'

Export schema

Export GraphQL schema to GraphQL or JSON format:

gq <endpoint> --introspect > schema.graphql

# json
gq <endpoint> --introspect --format json > schema.json

Command

$ gq ENDPOINT [-q QUERY]

Args

  • ENDPOINT: graphql endpoint (can be also set as GRAPHQURL_ENDPOINT env var)

Node Library

Using callbacks:

const { createClient } = require('graphqurl');

const client = createClient({
  endpoint: 'https://my-graphql-endpoint/graphql',
  headers: {
    'Authorization': 'Bearer <token>'
  }
});

function successCallback(response, queryType, parsedQuery) {
  if (queryType === 'subscription') {
    // handle subscription response
  } else {
    // handle query/mutation response
  }
}

function errorCallback(error, queryType, parsedQuery) {
  console.error(error);
}

client.query(
  {
    query: 'query ($id: Int) { table_by_id (id: $id) { column } }',
    variables: { id: 24 }
  },
  successCallback,
  errorCallback
);

Using Promises:

For queries and mutations,

const { createClient } = require('graphqurl');

const client = createClient({
  endpoint: 'https://my-graphql-endpoint/graphql',
  headers: {
    'Authorization': 'Bearer <token>'
  }
});

client.query(
  {
    query: 'query ($id: Int) { table_by_id (id: $id) { column } }',
    variables: { id: 24 }
  }
).then((response) => console.log(response))
 .catch((error) => console.error(error));

For subscriptions,

const { createClient } = require('graphqurl');

const client = createClient({
  endpoint: 'https://my-graphql-endpoint/graphql',
  headers: {
    'Authorization': 'Bearer <token>'
  }
  websocket: {
    endpoint: 'wss://my-graphql-endpoint/graphql',
    onConnectionSuccess: () => console.log('Connected'),
    onConnectionError: () => console.log('Connection Error'),
  }
});

client.subscribe(
  {
    subscription: 'subscription { table { column } }',
  },
  (event) => {
    console.log('Event received: ', event);
    // handle event
  },
  (error) => {
    console.log('Error: ', error);
    // handle error
  }
)

API

createClient(options)

The createClient function is available as a named export. It takes init options and returns client.

const { createClient } = require('graphqurl');
  • options: [Object, required] graphqurl init options with the following properties:

    • endpoint: [String, required] GraphQL endpoint
    • headers: [Object] Request header, defaults to {}. These headers will be added along with all the GraphQL queries, mutations and subscriptions made through the client.
    • websocket: [Object] Options for configuring subscriptions over websocket. Subscriptions are not supported if this field is empty.
      • endpoint: [String, ] WebSocket endpoint to run GraphQL subscriptions.
      • shouldRetry: [Boolean] Boolean value whether to retry closed websocket connection. Defaults to false.
      • parameters: [Object] Payload to send the connection init message with
      • onConnectionSuccess: [void => void] Callback function called when the GraphQL connection is successful. Please not that this is different from the websocket connection being open. Please check the followed protocol for more details.
      • onConnectionError: [error => null] Callback function called if the GraphQL connection over websocket is unsuccessful
      • onConnectionKeepAlive: [void => null]: Callback function called when the GraphQL server sends GRAPHQL_CONNECTION_KEEP_ALIVE messages to keep the connection alive.
  • Returns: [client]

Client

const client = createClient({
  endpoint: 'https://my-graphql-endpoint/graphql'
});

The graphqurl client exposeses the following methods:

  • client.query: [(queryoptions, successCallback, errorCallback) => Promise (response)]

    • queryOptions: [Object required]
      • query: [String required] The GraphQL query or mutation to be executed over HTTP
      • variables: [Object] GraphQL query variables. Defaults to {}
      • headers: [Object] Header overrides. If you wish to make a GraphQL query while adding to or overriding the headers provided during initalisations, you can pass the headers here.
    • successCallback: [response => null] Success callback which is called after a successful response. It is called with the following parameters:
      • response: The response of your query
    • errorCallback: [error => null] Error callback which is called after the occurrence of an error. It is called with the following parameters:
      • error: The occurred error
    • Returns: [Promise (response) ] This function returns the response wrapped in a promise.
      • response: response is a GraphQL compliant JSON object in case of queries and mutations.
  • client.subscribe: [(subscriptionOptions, eventCallback, errorCallback) => Function (stop)]

    • subscriptionOptions: [Object required]
      • subscription: [String required] The GraphQL subscription to be started over WebSocket
      • variables: [Object] GraphQL query variables. Defaults to {}
      • onGraphQLData: [(response) => null] You can optionally pass this function as an event callback
      • onGraphQLError: [(response) => null] You can optionally pass this function as an error callback
      • onGraphQLComplete: [() => null] Callback function called when the GraphQL subscription is declared as complete by the server and no more events will be received
    • eventCallback: [(response) => null] Event callback which is called after receiving an event from the given subscription. It is called with the following parameters:
      • event: The received event from the subscription
    • errorCallback: [error => null] Error callback which is called after the occurrence of an error. It is called with the following parameters:
      • error: The occurred error
    • Returns: [void => null] This is a function to stop the subscription
