Adonis

Setting up Apollo Server with Adonis


npm version Build Status Coverage Status Get on Slack

This is the Adonis Framework integration of Apollo Server. Apollo Server is a community-maintained open-source Apollo Server that works with all Node.js HTTP server frameworks: Express, Connect, Hapi, Koa, Adonis Framework, and Restify. Read the docs. Read the CHANGELOG.

npm install apollo-server-adonis

Usage

// start/routes.js
const { graphqlAdonis } = require('apollo-server-adonis');
// or using es6 modules
import { graphqlAdonis } from 'apollo-server-adonis';

const Route = use('Route');

Route.post('/graphql', graphqlAdonis({ schema: myGraphQLSchema }));
Route.get('/graphql', graphqlAdonis({ schema: myGraphQLSchema }));

GraphiQL

You can also use apollo-server-adonis for hosting the GraphiQL in-browser IDE. Note the difference between graphqlAdonis and graphiqlAdonis.

// start/routes.js
const { graphiqlAdonis } = require('apollo-server-adonis');
// or using es6 modules
import { graphiqlAdonis } from 'apollo-server-adonis';

const Route = use('Route');

// Setup the /graphiql route to show the GraphiQL UI
Route.get(
  '/graphiql',
  graphiqlAdonis({
    endpointURL: '/graphql', // a POST endpoint that GraphiQL will make the actual requests to
  }),
);

In case your GraphQL endpoint is protected via authentication, or if you need to pass other custom headers in the request that GraphiQL makes, you can use the passHeader option – a string that will be added to the request header object.

For example:

// start/routes.js
const { graphiqlAdonis } = require('apollo-server-adonis');
// or using es6 modules
import { graphiqlAdonis } from 'apollo-server-adonis';

const Route = use('Route');

Route.get(
  '/graphiql',
  graphiqlAdonis({
    endpointURL: '/graphql',
    passHeader: `'Authorization': 'Bearer lorem ipsum'`,
  }),
);

Principles

  • Simplicity: by keeping things simple, Apollo Server is easier to use, easier to contribute to, and more secure
  • Performance: Apollo Server is well-tested and production-ready - no modifications needed
