yarn add @graphql-codegen/graphql-modules-preset

The @graphql-codegen/graphql-modules-preset generates .ts file with TypeScript types, per each directory that contains GraphQL SDL definitions.

The generates files will be generated based on each module definition, and based on the GraphQL schema defined in that specific module, allowing you to write type-safe resolvers, while keeping modules types boundaries.

Usage Requirements#

This preset generates code for graphql-modules @ v1 / v2 (previous versions are not supported) by default.

If you are not using graphql-modules, you can set useGraphQLModules: false to disable this behaviour.


{@import ../generated-config/}

Usage Example#

Given a folder structure with the following files:

- src/ - modules/ - user/ - resolvers.ts - typedefs/ - user.graphql - product/ - resolvers.ts - typedefs/ - product.graphql

Here's a short example for generating types and resolvers for 2 modules:

schema: './src/modules/**/typedefs/*.graphql' generates: ./server/src/modules/: preset: graphql-modules presetConfig: baseTypesPath: ../generated-types/graphql.ts # Where to create the complete schema types filename: generated-types/module-types.ts # Where to create each module types plugins: - add: content: '/* eslint-disable */' - typescript - typescript-resolvers

This will generate a file called module-types.ts under each module you have.

To use the generates resolvers, you can use Resolvers signature and apply it to your resolvers object within the module:

// src/modules/user/resolvers.ts import { MyModule } from './generated-types/module-types' export const resolvers: MyModule.Resolvers = { // Here you can implement only the types and fields defined in your module! }

You can find an example project here.

Using without GraphQL-Modules#

By defualt, this preset it generating code for graphql-modules, but if you are not using it, you can set useGraphQLModules: false in your preset configuration to generate fully agnostic types that are based on folder strucutre only.
