Boost your GraphQL development with GraphQL Zeus

GraphQL Zeus is an open-source (MIT) graphql client & code generator working with a Browser, Node.js & React Native. It provides an auto-complete client library for JavaScript or TypeScript supporting auto-completion for strongly typed queries. It’s maintained by Artur Czemiel (follow him on Twitter for latest GraphQL Zeus news & updates).

Installation & Basic usage

To play with it use npm install:

$ npm i -g graphql-zeus

Zeus supports:

  • Javascript (Browser, NodeJS, React Native)
  • TypeScript (Browser, NodeJS, React Native)

Zeus in action

GraphQL Zeus provides many useful solutions among which you can find such as:

  • Chain - Chain is the main function responsible for forming a GraphQL Query. It provides auto-complete in Zeus Syntax. Returned data is mapped accordingly to GraphQL query, so you get type-safe completion for both query and response in both TypeScript and JavaScript.
  • Aliases - You can alias each query just like in GraphQL original specification. To use alias you just need to provide __alias:{[YOUR_ALIAS]:YOUR QUERY}
  • Selectors - If you use same GraphQL query many times you can use Selectors which you can later inject into the Chain function

JavaScript & React Native:

$ zeus schema.graphql ./

TypeScript:

$ zeus schema.graphql ./  --ts 

Node.JS:

$ zeus schema.graphql ./  --node
