drizzle-graphql

Create a GraphQL server from a Drizzle schema in one line, and easily enhance it with custom queries and mutations.

Quick start

Make sure your drizzle-orm version is at least 0.30.9, and update if needed:

npm
yarn
pnpm
bun
npm i drizzle-orm@latest

Apollo Server

npm
yarn
pnpm
bun
npm i drizzle-graphql @apollo/server graphql
server.ts
schema.ts
import { buildSchema } from 'drizzle-graphql';
import { drizzle } from 'drizzle-orm/...';
import { ApolloServer } from '@apollo/server';
import { startStandaloneServer } from '@apollo/server/standalone';

import * as dbSchema from './schema';

const db = drizzle({ schema: dbSchema });

const { schema } = buildSchema(db);

const server = new ApolloServer({ schema });
const { url } = await startStandaloneServer(server);

console.log(`🚀 Server ready at ${url}`);
import { integer, serial, text, pgTable } from 'drizzle-orm/pg-core';
import { relations } from 'drizzle-orm';

export const users = pgTable('users', {
  id: serial('id').primaryKey(),
  name: text('name').notNull(),
});

export const usersRelations = relations(users, ({ many }) => ({
  posts: many(posts),
}));

export const posts = pgTable('posts', {
  id: serial('id').primaryKey(),
  content: text('content').notNull(),
  authorId: integer('author_id').notNull(),
});

export const postsRelations = relations(posts, ({ one }) => ({
  author: one(users, { fields: [posts.authorId], references: [users.id] }),
}));

GraphQL Yoga

npm
yarn
pnpm
bun
npm i drizzle-graphql graphql-yoga graphql
server.ts
schema.ts
import { buildSchema } from 'drizzle-graphql';
import { drizzle } from 'drizzle-orm/...';
import { createYoga } from 'graphql-yoga';
import { createServer } from 'node:http';

import * as dbSchema from './schema';

const db = drizzle({ schema: dbSchema });

const { schema } = buildSchema(db);

const yoga = createYoga({ schema });
const server = createServer(yoga);

server.listen(4000, () => {
  console.info('Server is running on http://localhost:4000/graphql');
});
import { integer, serial, text, pgTable } from 'drizzle-orm/pg-core';
import { relations } from 'drizzle-orm';

export const users = pgTable('users', {
  id: serial('id').primaryKey(),
  name: text('name').notNull(),
});

export const usersRelations = relations(users, ({ many }) => ({
  posts: many(posts),
}));

export const posts = pgTable('posts', {
  id: serial('id').primaryKey(),
  content: text('content').notNull(),
  authorId: integer('author_id').notNull(),
});

export const postsRelations = relations(posts, ({ one }) => ({
  author: one(users, { fields: [posts.authorId], references: [users.id] }),
}));

Customizing schema

ℹī¸

buildSchema() produces schema and types using standard graphql SDK, so its output is compatible with any library that supports it.

If you want to customize your schema, you can use entities object to build your own new schema:

server.ts
schema.ts
import { buildSchema } from 'drizzle-graphql';
import { drizzle } from 'drizzle-orm/...';
import { GraphQLList, GraphQLNonNull, GraphQLObjectType, GraphQLSchema } from 'graphql';
import { createYoga } from 'graphql-yoga';
import { createServer } from 'node:http';

import * as dbSchema from './schema';

const db = drizzle({ schema: dbSchema });

const { entities } = buildSchema(db);

// You can customize which parts of queries or mutations you want
const schema = new GraphQLSchema({
  query: new GraphQLObjectType({
    name: 'Query',
    fields: {
      // Select only wanted queries out of all generated
      users: entities.queries.users,
      customer: entities.queries.customersSingle,

      // Create a custom one
      customUsers: {
        // You can reuse and customize types from original schema
        type: new GraphQLList(new GraphQLNonNull(entities.types.UsersItem)),
        args: {
          // You can reuse inputs as well
          where: {
            type: entities.inputs.UsersFilters
          },
        },
        resolve: async (source, args, context, info) => {
          // Your custom logic goes here...
          const result = await db.select(schema.users).where()...

          return result;
        },
      },
    },
  }),
  // Same rules apply to mutations
  mutation: new GraphQLObjectType({
    name: 'Mutation',
    fields: entities.mutations,
  }),
  // In case you need types inside your schema
  types: [...Object.values(entities.types), ...Object.values(entities.inputs)],
});

const yoga = createYoga({
  schema,
});

const server = createServer(yoga);

server.listen(4000, () => {
  console.info('Server is running on http://localhost:4000/graphql');
})
import { integer, serial, text, pgTable } from 'drizzle-orm/pg-core';
import { relations } from 'drizzle-orm';

export const users = pgTable('users', {
  id: serial('id').primaryKey(),
  name: text('name').notNull(),
});

export const usersRelations = relations(users, ({ many }) => ({
  posts: many(posts),
}));

export const posts = pgTable('posts', {
  id: serial('id').primaryKey(),
  content: text('content').notNull(),
  authorId: integer('author_id').notNull(),
});

export const postsRelations = relations(posts, ({ one }) => ({
  author: one(users, { fields: [posts.authorId], references: [users.id] }),
}));
