GraphQL Plugin

Support for using graphql in Dart.

This plugin defines a simple framework for generating graphql entities.

The code generation is based on a set of graphql queries but all affected types are generated using the original type name and all properties. This behavior allows to use a common type like PageInfo everywhere in your code.

Features

Getting started

See example project

build.yaml

Add build.yaml to your project:

targets:
  $default:
    builders:
      example|graphql_builder:
        generate_for:
          - "**/*.graphql"
        options:
          gqlEndpoint: "https://gitlab.com/api/graphql"

builders:
  graphql_builder:
    import: "package:dart_graphql/generator/graphql_fetch_generator.dart"
    builder_factories: ["getGqlBuilder"]
    build_extensions:
      .graphql:
        - .graphql.dart
    auto_apply: dependents
    build_to: source
    applies_builders: ["source_gen"]

gitlab.graphql

Create a graphql file:

query GitlabCEIssueLabels($firstN: Int) {
  project(fullPath: "gitlab-org/gitlab-ce") {
    id
    issues(first: $firstN) {
      edges {
        node {
          title
          state
          labels {
            edges {
              node {
                title
              }
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Build

Run pub run build_runner build --verbose --delete-conflicting-outputs

Use

import 'package:dart_graphql/dart_graphql.dart';
import 'package:example/gitlab.graphql.dart';

void main() async {
  GraphqlClient gqlClient = GraphqlClient("https://gitlab.com/api/graphql");
  var gqlResponse = await gqlClient.query(GitlabCEIssueLabels(firstN: 15));

  print("Issue labels:");
  for (IssueEdge issueEdge in gqlResponse.data.project.issues.edges) {
    List<String> labels =
        issueEdge.node.labels.edges.map((e) => e.node.title).toList();

    print(
        "${issueEdge.node.title} [${issueEdge.node.state}]: ${labels.join(', ')}");
  }
}

File upload

On your server create a new scalar type called 'Upload' and use the generator. The generator will create a FileUploadInput everywhere where it sees Upload. Before the request the library goes into the query variables recursively and collect all files and their paths in the tree. You can restore them on your server as described in https://github.com/jaydenseric/graphql-multipart-request-spec All file fields will have null value in the request. You can save bandwidth if you use the same FileUploadInput instance if you want to use the same file.

Notes

The plugin based on graphql-fetch project ported to dart2 and extended.
