Adds GraphQL support to your Flask application

Project description

Build Status Coverage Status PyPI version

Adds GraphQL support to your Flask application.


Just create a GraphQL instance from graphql_flask

from graphql_flask import GraphQL

graphql_blueprint = GraphQL(app, schema=schema)

This will add /graphql and /graphiql endpoints to your app.


This package provides the following Views: * GraphQLView: endpoint for expose the GraphQL schema * GraphiQLView: Graphical Interface for operate with GraphQL easily

You can also add only the views you want to use:

from graphql_flask import GraphQLView, GraphiQLView

app.add_url_rule('/graphql', view_func=GraphQLView.as_view('graphql', schema=schema))

Supported options

  • schema: The GraphQLSchema object that you want the view to execute when it gets a valid request.

  • pretty: Whether or not you want the response to be pretty printed JSON.

  • executor: The Executor that you want to use to execute queries.

  • root_value: The root_value you want to provide to executor.execute.

  • default_query: The default_query you want to provide to GraphiQL interface.

You can also subclass GraphQLView and overwrite get_root_value(self, request) to have a dynamic root value per request.

class UserRootValue(GraphQLView):
    def get_root_value(self, request):
        return request.user
