GraphQL Config

Get Started

Loading Config#


This function is the starting point for using GraphQL Config. It looks for a config file in predefined search places in the currently working directory.

A basic usage example (async):

import { loadConfig } from 'graphql-config' async function main() { const config = await loadConfig({ ... }) // an instance of GraphQLConfig }

Synchronous version:

import { loadConfigSync } from 'graphql-config' function main() { const config = loadConfigSync({ ... }) // an instance of GraphQLConfig }

type: string

An array of GraphQLExtensionDeclaration objects, place to register extensions.
