async-graphql

a high-performance graphql server library that's fully specification compliant

Book中文文档DocsGitHub repositoryCargo package


ci status code coverage Unsafe Rust forbidden Crates.io version docs.rs docs downloads PRs Welcome

This crate uses #![forbid(unsafe_code)] to ensure everything is implemented in 100% safe Rust.

Static schema

use std::error::Error;

use async_graphql::*;
use async_graphql_poem::*;
use poem::{*, listener::TcpListener};

struct Query;

#[Object]
impl Query {
  async fn howdy(&self) -> &'static str {
    "partner"
  }
}

async fn main() -> Result<(), Box<dyn Error>> {
  // create the schema
  let schema = Schema::build(Query, EmptyMutation, EmptySubscription).finish();

  // start the http server
  let app = Route::new().at("/", get(graphiql).post(GraphQL::new(schema)));
  println!("GraphiQL: http://localhost:8000");
  Server::new(TcpListener::bind("0.0.0.0:8000")).run(app).await?;
  Ok(())
}

Dynamic schema

use std::error::Error;

use async_graphql::dynamic::*;
use async_graphql_poem::*;
use poem::{*, listener::TcpListener};

let query = Object::new("Query")
  .field(Field::new("howdy", TypeRef::named_nn(TypeRef::STRING), |_| FieldFuture::new(async { "partner" })));

async fn main() -> Result<(), Box<dyn Error>> {
  // create the schema
  let schema = Schema::build(query, None, None)
    .register(query)
    .finish()?;

  // start the http server
  let app = Route::new().at("/", get(graphiql).post(GraphQL::new(schema)));
  println!("GraphiQL: http://localhost:8000");
  Server::new(TcpListener::bind("0.0.0.0:8000")).run(app).await?;
  Ok(())
}

Examples

All examples are in the sub-repository, located in the examples directory.

git submodule update # update the examples repo
cd examples && cargo run --bin [name]

Observability

One of the tools used to monitor your graphql server in production is Apollo Studio. Apollo Studio is a cloud platform that helps you build, monitor, validate, and secure your organization's data graph. Add the extension crate async_graphql_apollo_studio_extension to make this avaliable.
