GraphQL Data Provider Basics

Can someone point me to the right direction on connecting the Data Provider with my GraphQL endpoint? All I can found is this Github page but I still don't quite get how to set it up on my end https://github.com/refinedev/refine/tree/master/packages/graphql Thanks!

Hi @alanleyva22. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Sure, I can guide you on how to connect the Data Provider with your GraphQL endpoint using refine. Firstly, you need to install the necessary packages. You can do this by running the following command:
npm i @refinedev/core @refinedev/antd @refinedev/strapi-graphql
npm i @refinedev/core @refinedev/antd @refinedev/strapi-graphql
To activate the data provider in @refinedev/strapi-graphql, you have to pass the API address with GraphQLClient. Here is an example of how you can do this:
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import {
Layout,
ReadyPage,
notificationProvider,
ErrorComponent,
} from "@refinedev/antd";
import routerProvider from "@refinedev/react-router-v6";
import dataProvider, { GraphQLClient } from "@refinedev/strapi-graphql";

import { BrowserRouter, Routes, Route, Outlet } from "react-router-dom";

const client = new GraphQLClient("API_URL"); // replace "API_URL" with your GraphQL endpoint

const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<BrowserRouter>
<Refine
routerProvider={routerProvider}
dataProvider={dataProvider(client)}
notificationProvider={notificationProvider}
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
</BrowserRouter>
);
};
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import {
Layout,
ReadyPage,
notificationProvider,
ErrorComponent,
} from "@refinedev/antd";
import routerProvider from "@refinedev/react-router-v6";
import dataProvider, { GraphQLClient } from "@refinedev/strapi-graphql";

import { BrowserRouter, Routes, Route, Outlet } from "react-router-dom";

const client = new GraphQLClient("API_URL"); // replace "API_URL" with your GraphQL endpoint

const App: React.FC = () => {
return (
<BrowserRouter>
<Refine
routerProvider={routerProvider}
dataProvider={dataProvider(client)}
notificationProvider={notificationProvider}
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
</BrowserRouter>
);
};
In the above code, replace "API_URL" with your GraphQL endpoint. With GraphQLClient you can do things like add headers for authentication. On the other hand, you can send a request with your query. For more detailed information, you can check the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/data-providers/graphql). I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai Can you send me an example without using strapi-graphql? Just plain graphql

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Sure, to connect your GraphQL endpoint with refine, you can use the @refinedev/graphql package. Unfortunately, the provided extracts do not include a specific example of using the @refinedev/graphql package without strapi-graphql. However, the general approach would be similar to the strapi-graphql example. You would need to install the necessary packages, create a GraphQLClient with your API URL, and then pass this client to the dataProvider prop of the Refine component. For more detailed instructions and examples, I recommend checking the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/data-providers/graphql) and the GitHub page (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/tree/master/packages/graphql) you mentioned in your question. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Hey @alanleyva22 , Did this documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/data-providers/graphql/) come in handy for you? It might be a good time for us to improve our GraphQL documentation. We are using gql-query-builder (https://github.com/atulmy/gql-query-builder) to create GraphQL queries. To start customizing our strapi-graphql or graphql packages, you can use the swizzle command of CLI (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/cli/#commands). This could be a good starting point
