Integrate With GraphQL Inspector

GraphQL Inspector outputs a list of changes between two GraphQL schemas. Every change is precisely explained and marked as breaking, non-breaking or dangerous. It helps you validate documents and fragments against a schema and even find similar or duplicated types.

GraphQL Modules comes with a built-in support for GraphQL Inspector.

To get started, add @graphql-inspector/cli to your app:

yarn global add @graphql-inspector/cli

And create schema.ts to expose the schema of your GraphQL Modules application. GraphQL Modules won't load other things such as injectors, resolvers and providers when you just try to get type definitions from your top module, because GraphQL Modules loads every part of module lazily.

  • Create src/schema.ts to expose your type definitions to GraphQL Inspector without any business logic.


import { AppModule } from './modules/app.module';
// Get schema from top module, and export it
export default AppModule.schema;

Then, you can run:

introspect ./schema.ts --require ts-node/register
