A dead-simple GraphQL client that supports subscriptions over websockets

Project description

py-graphql-client

Dead-simple to use GraphQL client over websocket. Using the apollo-transport-ws protocol.

Install

pip install py-graphql-client

Examples

Setup subscriptions super easily

from graphql_client import GraphQLClient

ws = GraphQLClient('ws://localhost:8080/graphql')
def callback(_id, data):
  print("got new data..")
  print(f"msg id: {_id}. data: {data}")

query = """
  subscription {
    notifications {
      id
      title
      content
    }
  }
"""
sub_id = ws.subscribe(query, callback=callback)
...
# later stop the subscription
ws.stop_subscribe(sub_id)
ws.close()

Variables can be passed

from graphql_client import GraphQLClient

ws = GraphQLClient('ws://localhost:8080/graphql')
def callback(_id, data):
  print("got new data..")
  print(f"msg id: {_id}. data: {data}")

query = """
  subscription ($limit: Int!) {
    notifications (order_by: {created: "desc"}, limit: $limit) {
      id
      title
      content
    }
  }
"""
sub_id = ws.subscribe(query, variables={'limit': 10}, callback=callback)

Normal queries and mutations work too

from graphql_client import GraphQLClient

ws = GraphQLClient('ws://localhost:8080/graphql')
query = """
  query ($limit: Int!) {
    notifications (order_by: {created: "desc"}, limit: $limit) {
      id
      title
      content
    }
  }
"""
res = ws.query(query, variables={'limit': 10})
print(res)
ws.close()

TODO

  • support http as well
  • should use asyncio websocket library?
