GraphQL is a query language for your API, and a server-side runtime for executing queries by using a type system you define for your data. GraphQL isn't tied to any specific database or storage engine and is instead backed by your existing code and data. A GraphQL service is created by defining types and fields on those types, then providing functions for each field on each type.

OkGraphQl is an Android client implementation, thinked to be easy to use, fluent, and completely modular

Download

In your module

compile 'com.github.florent37:okgraphql:(last version)'

//dependencies
compile 'io.reactivex.rxjava2:rxjava:2.1.9'
compile 'com.squareup.okhttp3:okhttp:3.9.1'
compile 'com.google.code.gson:gson:2.8.2'
compile 'com.github.florent37:android-nosql:1.0.0'

Creation

First, initialize you OkGraphQl client with

  • The GraphQl sever url
  • An OkHttpClient (optional)
  • A converter (optional)
OkGraphql okGraphql = new OkGraphql.Builder()
                .okClient(okHttpClient)
                .baseUrl("http://192.168.1.16:8888/graphql")
                .converter(new GsonConverter(new Gson()))
                .build();

Usage

Please note that following examples have been tested on the StarWars GraphQl server : https://github.com/apollographql/starwars-server

Create your GraphQl query with query(string), then execute with enqueue(SuccessCallback, ErrorCallback)

By default the success response is the Json (as String)

okGraphql
        .query("{" +
                "  hero {" +
                "    name" +
                "  }" +
                "}"
        )
        .enqueue(responseString -> {
            //play with your responseString
        }, error -> {
            //display the error
        });

You can also inflate a POJO with the returned Json using .cast(CLASS) This will use the converter assigned to your OkGraphQl

class Character {
     String name;
}
   
class StarWarsResponse {
   Character hero;  
}

okGraphql
        .query("{" +
                "  hero {" +
                "    name" +
                "  }" +
                "}"
        )
        
        .cast(StarWarsResponse.class) //will automatically cast the data json to

        .enqueue(response -> {
            //play with your StarWarsResponse
        }, error -> {
            //display the error
        });

RxJava !

You can also use RxJava methods to your query using .toSingle()

okGraphql
         .query(
                 "Hero($episode: Episode, $withFriends: Boolean!) {" +
                         "  hero(episode: $episode) {" +
                         "    name" +
                         "    friends @include(if: $withFriends) {" +
                         "      name" +
                         "    }" +
                         "  }"
         )

         .variable("episode", "JEDI")
         .variable("withFriends", false)

         .cast(StarWarsResponse.class) //will automatically cast the data json to
         
         .toSingle()
         .observeOn(AndroidSchedulers.mainThread())
         .subscribe(
                 data -> textView.setText(data.toString()),
                 throwable -> textView.setText(throwable.getLocalizedMessage())
         );

Query Builder

Use Fields Builders instead of Strings to create dynamically your queries

okGraphql

      .query(newField()
              .field(newField("human").argument("id: \"1000\"")
                      .field("name")
                      .field("height")
              )
      )
      
      ...

This example will generate the query :

{
  human(id: "1000") {
    name
    height
  }
}

Mutations

Mutations are easy to execute with OkGraphQl

 okGraphql
          .mutation("CreateReviewForEpisode($ep: Episode!, $review: ReviewInput!) {" +
                  "  createReview(episode: $ep, review: $review) {" +
                  "    stars" +
                  "    commentary" +
                  "  }" +
                  "}")
          .variable("ep", "JEDI")
          .variable("review", "{ \"stars\": 5, \"commentary\": \"This is a great movie!\"")
          .enqueue(responseString -> {
              text1.setText(responseString);
          }, error -> {
              text1.setText(error.getLocalizedMessage());
          });

Fragments

Use .fragment(code) to append a fragment on your request

okGraphql

                .body("{" +
                        "  leftComparison: hero(episode: EMPIRE) {" +
                        "    ...comparisonFields" +
                        "  }" +
                        "  rightComparison: hero(episode: JEDI) {" +
                        "    ...comparisonFields" +
                        "  }" +
                        "}"
                )

                .fragment("comparisonFields on Character {" +
                        "  name" +
                        "  appearsIn" +
                        "  friends {" +
                        "    name" +
                        "  }" +
                        "}")

                .enqueue(responseString -> {
                    query_hero_enqueue.setText(responseString);
                }, error -> {
                    query_hero_enqueue.setText(error.getLocalizedMessage());
                });
