GraphQL query generator for .NET

Allows you to automatically generate GraphQL queries from C# variables and types


Instantiate a GraphQlQueryBuilder from the GraphQlClient namespace (you can also use the IGraphQlQueryBuilder interface for service pattern and to support mocking)

using GraphQlClient;

class User //Example query type
    public int Id;
    public string Name;

IGraphQlQueryBuilder queryBuilder = new GraphQlQueryBuilder();
var query = queryBuilder.Build<User>();

//query.GetQuery() is the string "{id name}"

Supports anonymous types for inline definitions (this is particularly useful when writing tests)

Example 1

var request = queryBuilder.Build
        User = new 
            Id = default(int),
            Name = default(string)

Example 2

var expectedResult = new 
    Users = new [] 
            Name = "Tom"
            Name = "Harry"

var query = queryBuilder.Build(expectedResult);

var actual = await SendRequest(query.GetQuery());

// assert expected equal to actual

Fluent interface for parameters and field aliases

class UserQuery
    public User User;

public async Task<User> GetUser(int userId)
    var query = queryBuilder.Build<UserQuery>();

        .Field(q => q.User)
        .AddParameter("id", userId);

    return (await SendRequest<UserQuery>(query.GetQuery())).User;

public async Task<User> GetTom()
    var tomShape = new { Tom = default(User)};
    var query = queryBuilder.Build();

    query.Field(q => q.Tom)
            .AddParameter("name", "Tom");

    //query.GetQuery() is the string: {tom:user(name:"Tom"){ ... }}

    return (await SendRequest(query.GetQuery(), shape: tomShape)).Tom;


Written in .NET 5, Newtonsoft.JSON used for serialising parameters, in future the serialisation will be exposed for more flexibility

Uses xUnit and FluentAssertions for the test suite
