GraphQL 介绍

Learn about GraphQL, how it works, and how to use it in this series of articles. Looking for documentation on how to build a GraphQL service? There are libraries to help you implement GraphQL in many different languages. For an in-depth learning experience with practical tutorials, visit the How to GraphQL fullstack tutorial website. We have also partnered with edX to create a free online course, Exploring GraphQL: A Query Language for APIs.

GraphQL 是一种 API 查询语言, 用于服务器端执行按已定义类型系统的查询. GraphQL 不与任何特定的数据库或存储引擎进行绑定, 而是由您的代码和数据支持.

通过定义类型和字段类型来创建 GraphQL 服务, 提供方法给每一个类型字段. 例如, 一个 GraphQL 服务, 告诉我们谁是登录用户(me), 用户信息可能是像这样显示:

type Query {
  me: User

type User {
  id: ID
  name: String


function Query_me(request) {
  return request.auth.user;

function User_name(user) {
  return user.getName();

Once a GraphQL service is running (typically at a URL on a web service), it can receive GraphQL queries to validate and execute. A received query is first checked to ensure it only refers to the types and fields defined, then runs the provided functions to produce a result.


  me {

可能处理得到的 JSON:

  "me": {
    "name": "Luke Skywalker"
