NEW!: Try graphene online


For instaling graphene, just run this command in your shell

pip install graphene
# Or in case of need Django model support
pip install graphene[django]


Here is one example for get you started:

class Query(graphene.ObjectType):
    hello = graphene.String(description='A typical hello world')
    ping = graphene.String(description='Ping someone',

    def resolve_hello(self, args, info):
        return 'World'

    def resolve_ping(self, args, info):
        return 'Pinging {}'.format(args.get('to'))

schema = graphene.Schema(query=Query)

Then Querying graphene.Schema is as simple as:

query = '''
    query SayHello {
result = schema.execute(query)
