GraphqlD: A graphql implementation for the D Programming language

CI

Graphql is a query language for apis. Given a query like for the schema in folder test.

{
  shipsselection(ids:[44,45]) {
    id
    commander {
      name
    }
  }
}

You get back json that looks like:

{
  "error": [],
  "data": {
    "shipsselection": [
      {
        "id": 44,
        "commander": {
          "name": "Kathryn Janeway"
        }
      },
      {
        "id": 45,
        "commander": {
          "name": "Jonathan Archer"
        }
      }
    ]
  }
}

Graphiql type-ahead works, this makes schema introspection a lot nicer.

Features

This graphql implementation is based on June 2018 spec.

Operation Execution

  • Scalars
  • Objects
  • Lists of objects/interfaces
  • Interfaces
  • Unions
  • Arguments
  • Variables
  • Fragments
  • Directives
    • Include
    • Skip
    • [?] Custom (Requires changing the graphqld source)
  • Enumerations
  • Input Objects
  • Mutations
  • Subscriptions (This needs vibe.d websocket integration)
  • Async execution (when used with vibe.d blocking resolver are async by default)

Validation

  • Arguments of correct type
  • Default values of correct type
  • Fields on correct type
  • Fragments on composite types
  • Known argument names
  • Executable Definition
  • Known directives
  • Known fragment names
  • Known type names
  • Lone anonymous operations
  • No fragment cycles
  • No undefined variables
  • No unused fragments
  • No unused variables
  • Overlapping fields can be merged (this is done during execution)
  • Possible fragment spreads
  • Provide non-null arguments
  • Scalar leafs
  • Unique argument names
  • Unique directives per location
  • Unique fragment names
  • Unique input field names
  • Unique operation names
  • Unique variable names
  • Variables are input types (this is actually a strange requirement)
  • Variables in allowed position
  • Single root field

Schema Introspection

  • __typename
  • __type
    • name
    • kind
    • description
    • fields
    • interfaces
    • possibleTypes
    • enumValues
    • inputFields
    • ofType
  • __schema
    • types
    • queryType
    • mutationType
    • subscriptionType
    • directives

Comfort Features

  • Query AST cache
  • Json to resolver argument extractor
  • SQL query generation from AST
  • Custom Leaf types (e.g. GQLDCustomLeaf!(std.datetime.DateTime))

Thank you to graphql-dot for the excelent list of features

Documentation

The Documentation is still WIP, please have a look at the vibe.d project in the test folder. This file gives a good overview on how to use graphqld with vibe.d.
