Project description

GraphQL helpers for Python.

CI status: ci-status

Schema definition

PyQL provides a better / cleaner syntax for defining GraphQL schemas.

Using PyQL:

from pyql import Schema

schema = Schema()

@schema.query.field('hello')
def resolve_hello(root, info, name: str = 'world') -> str:
    return 'Hello {}'.format(name)

compiled = schema.compile()

Equivalent using graphql-core:

from graphql import (
    GraphQLObjectType, GraphQLField, GraphQLArgument, GraphQLString,
    GraphQLSchema)

Query = GraphQLObjectType(
    'Query',
    fields=lambda: {
        'hello': GraphQLField(
            GraphQLString,
            args={
                'name': GraphQLArgument(
                    type=GraphQLString,
                    default_value='world',
                ),
            },
            resolver=lambda root, info, name = 'world': f'Hello, {name}'
        ),
    }
)

schema = GraphQLSchema(query=Query)

Graphene looks slightly better, but it’s quite confusing, and makes use of unncessary objects:

import graphene

class Query(graphene.ObjectType):
    hello = graphene.Field(
        graphene.String,
        name=graphene.Argument(graphene.String))

    def resolve_hello(self, info, name='world'):
        return f'Hello {name}'

schema = graphene.Schema(query=Query)

PyQL uses standard Python introspection when possible to figure out things, so eg. argument definitions can be picked up automatically from a resolver function, etc.

Limitations

While there are plans for field argument documentation to be picked up automatically from docstrings, it’s not currently implemented as reliably parsing docstrings is a non-trivial task.
