    Flow state is a rare treat for me these days. The last time I can remember being in that zone was working on a GraphiQL implementation for Open Sauced, The Open Sauced project makes use of OneGraph, to handle authentication and persisted query features in working with the GitHub GraphQL API. This was the first I had worked on any kind of GraphiQL implementation, so for those of you at the point I was at then, GraphiQL is an Open Source project that can be used to interact with a GraphQL API in an ad-hoc and dynamic way, allowing a developer to iterate quickly on features from a data retrieval standpoint. This post is about the PR #2 in the repo.

    Traditionally, most of the above problems have been pretty unavoidable, but at Anvil most of our APIs are implemented in GraphQL. GraphQL requires the definition of a schema that describes all the types, fields, methods, arguments, return types, etc, and even allows for descriptions of most things to be included. In this way, GraphQL implementations are pretty self-describing, and great tools like GraphiQL or Playground already exist to leverage this attribute of the framework. Because of all this, I knew that there must be a better way to do documentation in GraphQL-land, and I sought out to find it.

    If you're building a GraphQL API, you use the Schema Definition Language to write your spec. Then you can run a GraphiQL server pointing to your spec file to visualise and test the API design.

    Most GraphQL endpoints come with some form of GraphQL explorer, the most popular being GraphiQL and GraphQL Playground. As an example, let's start with a public GraphQL endpoint provided by the event management platform Their endpoint allows developers to retrieve data associated with specific events in their database. We can use their explorer to create and test a super basic query.

    A GraphiQL query editor will open that is already connected to your deployed API for you to test. Any changes you make to the API code will be automatically uploaded and deployed until you end the stepzen start process. However, you shouldn't need to make any changes at this point. Let's test that this is working by querying the API with a simple query to get posts:

    Before we can get started, we need a query and an API endpoint to hit. Getting both of those items via Contentful is a breeze. For the API endpoint, we can use Contentful's API Base URL, taken from the GraphQL docs. To find a query we can use GraphiQL, an in-browser GraphQL IDE. Open up{SPACE_ID}/explore?access_token={accessToken}, replacing the spaceID and accessToken with your own.
  • Never Used GraphQL? Fear Not!

    Once you're done writing a GraphQL API, you can use one of many GraphQL clients to send operations to your server. Most GraphQL APIs come with a GraphQL playground that you can use to write queries, and click a button to send them to the server, and display the JSON result. But when you're building a graphical application, you would want to use a client library from your code. An example query would be:
