Apollo Optics and your GraphQL Server

As we move into a GraphQL-first world, it’s important to be able to understand not only what data you’re fetching, but also how it’s being fetched. Many people think of this as an after-thought, hoping that simply getting as much code as possible out as fast as possible will help them win over their competition.

However, this approach can be costly on many levels. First, your application’s end users will notice the clunkiness of your application. In addition, on your servers, fetching data the wrong way can create inefficiencies that cost you in CPU usage, memory leaks, and slow response times (not to mention your AWS bill skyrocketing through the roof). Not the type of growth you’re looking for, probably.

How to Build Apollo GraphQL Server From Scratch

What is GraphQL

GraphQL is a query language and a server-side runtime that is used to request data from the server. The first thing that comes to mind when hearing the term “query language” is SQL. Just as SQL is used for querying databases, GraphQL is a bit like SQL but for querying web APIs as it eliminates the need to repeatedly develop or change existing end-points. GraphQL also enables the client/front-end to retrieve exactly the data they have requested and no more. This means that, within a single request of GraphQL, you can traverse from the entry point to the related data (whereas in RESTful API you have to call multiple endpoints to fetch similar results).

The following example will help you to understand this better. Let us consider an object person which has the attributes name, age, email, and contactNumber. Suppose the front-end only needs the name and age of the person. If we design a REST API, the endpoint will look like api/persons, which will end up fetching all the fields for the person object. The issue arises here because there is no easy way to communicate that I am interested in some fields and not others (which causes REST API to over fetch the data).

apollo-upload-client: A Terminating Apollo Link for Apollo Client that Fetches a GraphQL Multipart Request

Apollo Upload Client

A terminating Apollo Link for Apollo Client that fetches a GraphQL multipart request if the GraphQL variables contain files (by default FileList, File, Blob, or ReactNativeFile instances), or else fetches a regular GraphQL POST or GET request (depending on the config and GraphQL operation).

Installation

To install with npm, run:

npm install apollo-upload-client

Remove any uri, credentials, or headers options from the ApolloClient constructor.

Apollo Client can only have 1 terminating Apollo Link that sends the GraphQL requests; if one such as HttpLink is already setup, remove it.

Initialize the client with a terminating Apollo Link using createUploadLink.

Also ensure the GraphQL server implements the GraphQL multipart request spec and that uploads are handled correctly in resolvers.

Usage

Use FileList, File, Blob or ReactNativeFile instances anywhere within query or mutation variables to send a GraphQL multipart request.

See also the example API and client.

FileList

import { gql, useMutation } from "@apollo/client";

const MUTATION = gql`
  mutation ($files: [Upload!]!) {
    uploadFiles(files: $files) {
      success
    }
  }
`;

function UploadFiles() {
  const [mutate] = useMutation(MUTATION);

  function onChange({ target: { validity, files } }) {
    if (validity.valid) mutate({ variables: { files } });
  }

  return <input type="file" multiple required onChange={onChange} />;
}

File

import { gql, useMutation } from "@apollo/client";

const MUTATION = gql`
  mutation ($file: Upload!) {
    uploadFile(file: $file) {
      success
    }
  }
`;

function UploadFile() {
  const [mutate] = useMutation(MUTATION);

  function onChange({
    target: {
      validity,
      files: [file],
    },
  }) {
    if (validity.valid) mutate({ variables: { file } });
  }

  return <input type="file" required onChange={onChange} />;
}

Blob

import { gql, useMutation } from "@apollo/client";

const MUTATION = gql`
  mutation ($file: Upload!) {
    uploadFile(file: $file) {
      success
    }
  }
`;

function UploadFile() {
  const [mutate] = useMutation(MUTATION);

  function onChange({ target: { validity, value } }) {
    if (validity.valid) {
      const file = new Blob([value], { type: "text/plain" });

      // Optional, defaults to `blob`.
      file.name = "text.txt";

      mutate({ variables: { file } });
    }
  }

  return <input type="text" required onChange={onChange} />;
}

Requirements

Consider polyfilling:

API

class ReactNativeFile

Used to mark React Native File substitutes as it’s too risky to assume all objects with uri, type and name properties are extractable files.

ParameterTypeDescription
fileReactNativeFileSubstituteA React Native File substitute.

See

Examples

Ways to import.

import { ReactNativeFile } from "apollo-upload-client";

import ReactNativeFile from "apollo-upload-client/public/ReactNativeFile.js";

Ways to require.

const { ReactNativeFile } = require("apollo-upload-client");

const ReactNativeFile = require("apollo-upload-client/public/ReactNativeFile.js");

A file in React Native that can be used in query or mutation variables.

const file = new ReactNativeFile({  uri: uriFromCameraRoll,  name: "a.jpg",  type: "image/jpeg", });


function createUploadLink

Creates a terminating Apollo Link for Apollo Client that fetches a GraphQL multipart request if the GraphQL variables contain files (by default FileList, File, Blob, or ReactNativeFile instances), or else fetches a regular GraphQL POST or GET request (depending on the config and GraphQL operation).

Some of the options are similar to the createHttpLink options.

ParameterTypeDescription
optionsobjectOptions.
options.uristring? = /graphqlGraphQL endpoint URI.
options.useGETForQueriesboolean?Should GET be used to fetch queries, if there are no files to upload.
options.isExtractableFileExtractableFileMatcher? = isExtractableFileCustomizes how files are matched in the GraphQL operation for extraction.
options.FormDataclass?FormData implementation to use, defaulting to the FormData global.
options.formDataAppendFileFormDataFileAppender? = formDataAppendFileCustomizes how extracted files are appended to the FormData instance.
options.fetchFunction?fetch implementation to use, defaulting to the fetch global.
options.fetchOptionsFetchOptions?fetch options; overridden by upload requirements.
options.credentialsstring?Overrides options.fetchOptions.credentials.
options.headersobject?Merges with and overrides options.fetchOptions.headers.
options.includeExtensionsboolean? = falseToggles sending extensions fields to the GraphQL server.

Returns: ApolloLink — A terminating Apollo Link.

formDataFormDataFormData instance to append the specified file to.
fieldNamestringField name for the file.
file*File to append.

Examples

Ways to import.

import { formDataAppendFile } from "apollo-upload-client";

import formDataAppendFile from "apollo-upload-client/public/formDataAppendFile.js";

Ways to require.

const { formDataAppendFile } = require("apollo-upload-client");

const formDataAppendFile = require("apollo-upload-client/public/formDataAppendFile.js");


function isExtractableFile

The default implementation for createUploadLink options.isExtractableFile.

Type: ExtractableFileMatcher

ParameterTypeDescription
value*Value to check.

Returns: boolean — Is the value an extractable file.

See

Examples

Ways to import.

import { isExtractableFile } from "apollo-upload-client";

type FetchOptions

GraphQL request fetch options.

Type: object

PropertyTypeDescription
headersobjectHTTP request headers.
credentialsstring?Authentication credentials mode.

See


type FormDataFileAppender

Appends a file extracted from the GraphQL operation to the FormData instance used as the fetch options.body for the GraphQL multipart request.

ParameterTypeDescription
formDataFormDataFormData instance to append the specified file to.
fieldNamestringField name for the file.
file*File to append. The file type depends on what the ExtractableFileMatcher extracts.

See


type ReactNativeFileSubstitute
