Hasura Connect Package

Connect your Flutter/Dart apps to Hasura simply.

What can he do

The hasura_connect is designed to facilitate Hasura's integration with Flutter applications, leveraging the full power of Graphql.

  • Use Query, Mutation and Subscriptions the easy way.
  • Offline cache for Subscription and Mutation made from a Snapshot.
  • Easy integration with leading dart providers (Provider, bloc_pattern).
  • Pass your JWT Token easily if you are informed when it is invalid.

Install

Add dependency in your pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
  hasura_connect:

or use Slidy:

slidy install hasura_connect

Usage

A simple usage example:


//import
import 'package:hasura_connect/hasura_connect.dart';

String url = 'http://localhost:8080/v1/graphql';
HasuraConnect hasuraConnect = HasuraConnect(url);

You can encapsulate this instance into a BLoC class or directly into a Provider.

Create a document with Query:

//document
String docQuery = """
  query {
    authors {
        id
        email
        name
      }
  }
""";

Now just add the document to the "query" method of the HasuraConnect instance.

//get query
var r = await hasuraConnect.query(docQuery);

//OR USE MUTATION
var r = await hasuraConnect.mutation(docQuery);

Subscriptions

Subscriptions will notify you each time you have a change to the searched items. Use the "hasuraConnect.subscription" method to receive a stream.

Snapshot snapshot = await hasuraConnect.subscription(docSubscription);
  snapshot.listen((data) {
    print(data);
  }).onError((err) {
    print(err);
  });

Using variables

Variables maintain the integrity of Querys, see an example:


String docSubscription = """
  subscription algumaCoisa($limit:Int!){
    users(limit: $limit, order_by: {user_id: desc}) {
      id
      email
      name
    }
  }
""";

Snapshot snapshot = await hasuraConnect.subscription(docSubscription, variables: {"limit": 10});

//change values of variables for PAGINATIONS
snapshot.changeVariable({"limit": 20});

INTERCEPTORS

This is a good strategy to control the flow of requests. With that we can create interceptors for logs or cache for example. The community has already provided some interceptors for caching. Interceptors are highly customizable.

View Hasura's official Authorization documentation.

class TokenInterceptor extends Interceptor {
  final FirebaseAuth auth;
  TokenInterceptor(this.auth);

  @override
  Future<void> onConnected(HasuraConnect connect) {}

  @override
  Future<void> onDisconnected() {}

  @override
  Future onError(HasuraError request) async {
    return request;
  }

  @override
  Future<Request> onRequest(Request request) async {
    var user = await auth.currentUser();
    var token = await user.getIdToken(refresh: true);
    if (token != null) {
      try {
        request.headers["Authorization"] = "Bearer ${token.token}";
        return request;
      } catch (e) {
        return null;
      }
    } else {
      Modular.to.pushReplacementNamed("/login");
    }
  }

  @override
  Future onResponse(Response data) async {
    return data;
  }

  @override
  Future<void> onSubscription(Request request, Snapshot snapshot) {}

  @override
  Future<void> onTryAgain(HasuraConnect connect) {}
}

INTERCEPTOR

Now you can intercept all requests, erros, subscritions.... all states of your hasura_connect connection.

  • onConnected
  • onDisconnected
  • onError
  • onRequest
  • onResponse
  • onSubscription
  • onTryAgain

CACHE OFFLINE

Now you will need to create a Interceptor or use a Cache Interceptor Package made to help you like: InMemory , Hive or SharedPreference

//In Memory
import 'package:hasura_cache_interceptor/hasura_hive_cache_interceptor.dart';

final storage = MemoryStorageService();
final cacheInterceptor = CacheInterceptor(storage);
final hasura = HasuraConnect(
  "<your hasura url>",
  interceptors: [cacheInterceptor],
  httpClient: httpClient,
)
//Hive
import 'package:hasura_connect/hasura_connect.dart';
import 'package:hasura_hive_cache_interceptor/hasura_hive_cache_interceptor.dart';

final cacheInterceptor = HiveCacheInterceptor("<your box name> (optional)");
final hasura = HasuraConnect(
  "<your hasura url>",
  interceptors: [cacheInterceptor],
  httpClient: httpClient,
)
//Shared Preference
import 'package:hasura_connect/hasura_connect.dart';
import 'package:shared_preferences_cache_interceptor/shared_preferences_cache_interceptor.dart';

final cacheInterceptor = SharedPreferencesCacheInterceptor();
final hasura = HasuraConnect(
  "<your hasura url>",
  interceptors: [cacheInterceptor],
  httpClient: httpClient,
)

Dispose

HasuraConnect provides a dispose() method for use in Provider or BlocProvider. Subscription will start only when someone is listening, and when all listeners are closed HasuraConnect automatically disconnects.

Therefore, we only connect to Hasura when we are actually using it;
