(yet another (battle tested)) GraphQL client

As part of our (shamelessly plugged) PRODUCT HUNT LAUNCH :point_right: https://www.producthunt.com/posts/meeshkan-ui-test-recorder :point_left:, we’re open sourcing parts of our PS stack :confetti_ball:

The first bit is here, which has been used to make millions of GraphQL requests in production.

It is a different approach than a lot of other graphql libraries but we’ve found that the approach is ergonomic and scalable across the team. I hope it works for y’all as well.

And, back to my shameless plug, I hope you can check out our PH launch! Our stack is certifiably 68.5% PureScript, so the community has been a big help getting there :smiley:

Looks like it utilizes simple-json meaning you could write your own read/write JSON instances for types beyond the example of String, Array, Record, yes?

Yup! We do lots of that at Meeshkan. For example, the following snippet is from our codebase. TestRunStatus is a custom type.

instance graphqlTestRunCreate ::
  GraphQL TestRunCreate """
  mutation($releaseId: ID!, $status: String!, $length: String!, $ciRun: String) {
      data: {
        release: { connect: { id: $releaseId } }
        status: $status
        testLength: $length
        ciRun: $ciRun
    ) {
""" ( releaseId :: String
    , status :: TestRunStatus
    , length :: String
    , ciRun :: Maybe String
    ) ( testRunCreate :: { id :: String } )

I think this may be a good example to add then: simple query vs. “complex” query.
