Documentation

Rover

🤖 🐶 the new CLI for apollo

Tests Stability: Experimental Netlify Status

This is the home of Rover, the new CLI for Apollo's suite of GraphQL developer productivity tools.

Note

This README contains just enough info to get you started with Rover. Our docs contain more detailed information that should be your primary reference for all things Rover.

Usage

A few useful Rover commands to interact with your graphs:

  1. Fetch a graph from a federated remote endpoint.
rover graph fetch test@cats
  1. Validate recent changes made to your local graph with rover graph check.
rover graph check --schema=./path-to-valid-sdl test@cats
  1. Publish your local graph to Apollo Studio.
rover graph publish --schema ./path-to-valid-schema test@cats

Command-line options

Rover 0.1.4

Rover - Your Graph Companion
Read the getting started guide by running:

    $ rover docs open start

To begin working with Rover and to authenticate with Apollo Studio,
run the following command:

    $ rover config auth

This will prompt you for an API Key that can be generated in Apollo Studio.

The most common commands from there are:

    - rover graph fetch: Fetch a graph schema from the Apollo graph registry
    - rover graph check: Check for breaking changes in a local graph schema against a graph schema in the Apollo graph
registry
    - rover graph publish: Publish an updated graph schema to the Apollo graph registry

You can open the full documentation for Rover by running:

    $ rover docs open

Installation Methods

Linux and MacOS curl | sh installer

To install the latest release of Rover:

curl -sSL https://rover.apollo.dev/nix/latest | sh

To install a specific version of Rover (note the v prefixing the version number):

Note: If you're installing Rover in a CI environment, it's best to target a specific version rather than using the latest URL, since future major breaking changes could affect CI workflows otherwise.

curl -sSL https://rover.apollo.dev/nix/v0.1.1 | sh

You will need curl installed on your system to run the above installation commands. You can get the latest version from the curl downloads page.

Note: rover supergraph compose is currently not available for Alpine Linux. You may track the progress for supporting this command on Alpine in this issue.

Windows PowerShell installer

iwr 'https://rover.apollo.dev/win/latest' | iex

To install a specific version of Rover (note the v prefixing the version number):

Note: If you're installing Rover in a CI environment, it's best to target a specific version rather than using the latest URL, since future major breaking changes could affect CI workflows otherwise.

iwr 'https://rover.apollo.dev/win/v0.1.1' | iex

npm installer

Rover is distributed on npm for easy integration with your JavaScript projects.

devDependency install

If you'd like to install rover as a devDependency in your JavaScript project, you can run npm i --save-dev @apollo/rover. You can then call rover directly in your package.json scripts, or you can run npx rover in your project directory to execute commands.

Manual download and install

If you'd like to call rover from any directory on your machine, you can run npm i -g @apollo/rover.

Note: Unfortunately if you've installed npm without a version manager such as nvm, you may have trouble with global installs. If you encounter an EACCES permission-related error while trying to install globally, DO NOT run the install command with sudo. This support page has information that should help to resolve this issue.

Without curl

You can also download the binary for your operating system and manually add its location to your PATH.
